To the brave and dedicated men and women of DHS, I submitted my resignation to the President this evening. I am eternally grateful and proud of what you do each and every day to protect our homeland. Each of you are why I came back to serve my country. Our missions as a Department are vast and have never been more vital. You are in the arena—keep up the good fight. Thank you for your sacrifices and those of your families.
God bless you, and God bless our great country.
Kirstjen M. Nielsen
Secretary of Homeland Security
With honor and integrity, we will safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values.
