Activists Protest Outside "Child Snatcher" DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's Northern Virginia Home Demanding Her Resignation
Alexandria, Virginia - Dozens of activists protested outside Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's Alexandria, Virginia home Friday morning demanding her resignation. Nielsen was in her home during the protest and left shortly after it ended. The protest was organized by CREDO Action, the activist arm of CREDO Mobile, America's progressive phone company.
At the protest, activists loudly played leaked audio of crying children who were separated from their parents at the border, marched with signs branding Nielsen a "child snatcher" and distributed "beware of child snatcher" leaflets throughout the neighborhood.
