Toobin: Kirstjen Nielsen "Going To Get What She Deserves"

|

Jeffrey Toobin, CNN chief legal analyst, said outgoing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will forever be known as "the woman who put children in cages" and she will "get what she deserves."

JEFFREY TOOBIN, CNN CHIEF LEGAL ANALYST: You know what? I don't know. And I think the problem is that, you know, the laws allow people to seek asylum in the United States across the border; and they're seeking it in great numbers.



But Kirstjen Nielsen, I think, is a great example of what happens when you go to work for Donald Trump. He is the great reputation killer. I mean, here's this woman who, you know, was a reasonably admired bureaucrat. And for the rest of her life -- for the rest of her life -- people will look at her and think, "Oh, that's the woman who put children in cages. That's the woman who broke up families across the border."

And you know what? They'll be right. Because she implemented that policy. Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, sort of created it, but she implemented it. And, you know, she's going to get what she deserves.
