Two senior White House officials described Nielsen as upset after the meeting, but said they were unaware of such a letter or threats to resign.

"The president is committed to fixing our broken immigration system and our porous borders".

One person at the meeting said Trump railed at the whole Cabinet over what he said was its lack of progress in keeping out illegal immigrants, the Times said. One person close to Nielsen said she is miserable in her job.

Trump, who has grown increasingly frustrated by a spike in border apprehensions and legal setbacks, blamed Nielsen Wednesday for failing to do enough to stop them, according to people familiar with the exchange.

Nielsen "is hard at work today on the President's security-focused agenda and supporting the men and women of @DHSgov", he added.

Nielsen in a statement on Thursday, said she shared Trump's frustration that "active Loop Holes and the lack of Allied actions have prevented this government out of fully procuring the border and shielding the American folks".

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who pushed for Nielsen - his former deputy - to be DHS secretary, told reporters Friday that he expects her to stay on the job. "I share his frustration", Nielsen said, according to CNN.

Sears pops after getting cozier with Amazon
The business said it's about 2,100 specialists in its Automobile Centers across the country to perform bicycle installations. Sears Auto Centers will install and balance any brand of tires purchased on Amazon.com, including Sears' own DieHard brand.

A Homeland Security spokesperson later denied the claims made in The Times's report: "The [New York Times] article alleging that the Secretary drafted a resignation letter yesterday and was close to resigning is false", spokesperson Tyler Houlton said.

The Times reported that Nielsen had drafted a resignation letter but not submitted it. CBS News political correspondent Ed O'Keefe noted Thursday that Nielsen would not be the first Trump administration official to express a desire to leave after being berated by Mr. Trump either by colleagues or in the Oval Office. The Post's account, headlined "Trump unloads on Homeland Security secretary in lengthy immigration tirade", adds the details that "Trump's tirade went on so long that many present began fidgeting in their seats and flashing grimaces", and that it lasted more than 30 minutes.

The White House did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment. For several weeks, Trump had advocated for the separation policy as a method to discourage border crossings, sources said to The Times.

Illegal crossings plunged in the early phase of Trump's presidency, but have since returned to levels consistent with the last several years of the Obama administration.

"Border security is the most basic and necessary responsibility of a sovereign nation", she continued.

Immigration is an important policy point of the Trump administration, and attempted illegal border crossings have been rising in recent months.

Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had to explain to Trump that he didn't have the power to completely shut down the border.
