White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s attempt to engineer a second shake-up at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was blocked this week by acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who later threatened to resign unless he was given more control over the agency.

Administration officials told The Washington Post that the closed-door clash revolved around Mark Morgan, a former FBI agent who is President Trump’s pick to be the new director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The article goes on to state the following:

Miller Wednesday reportedly urged the president to put Morgan atop U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) instead.

“This was a power struggle between McAleenan and Miller, and McAleenan won,” one senior official with knowledge of the situation told The Post.
