But some former Trump aides have found their options more limited than did their predecessors, in part due to controversy surrounding President Donald Trump's policies on issues such as the environment and immigration, as well as his record of racially-charged language.
California Sen. Kamala Harris, a member of the Homeland Security Committee and a 2020 Democratic White House hopeful, tweeted Monday that she would "under no circumstances support a nominee who does not forcefully denounce this administration's policy of separating families at the border".
If that was among the frustrations that drove Nielsen out of office, the White House should address it with her successor. That's why he has President Trump's ear on immigration policy. The expanded policy wouldn't just separate the families of undocumented immigrants, but legal asylum seekers as well.
At the same time, reports that the Trump team is reportedly eyeing a successor with an even more hard-line approach to immigration triggered alarm. "Limbo is the right word here because we've all been watching how low she can go", Colbert joked. This should be a warning to all who believe in justice. Her departure provides political fodder but little comfort, given Trump's demands for ever more severe policies. Do you know how terrible that must have been?
Nielsen travelled to the US-Mexico border on Friday with Trump to participate in a roundtable with border officers and local law enforcement.
Perhaps Nielsen will tell us, at some point. Other longtime civil servants in agency posts are also on the chopping block, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Google appears to have leaked its upcoming mid-range Pixel three telephones
Along with the device name, there was an option to "Compare phones" as well as a link to Pixel 3a cases in the drop-down menu. The Google Store pages revealed that Google's Connected Home product lineup could be gaining a new " Google Nest Hub Max ".
After domestic and global criticism, Trump signed an executive order in June ending family separations, but a government report last month showed that more than 200 children had been taken from their families since that time. But the big news is Trump pushing out his Homeland Security secretary.
That wasn't the only apparent roadblock.
Nielsen thanks the Republican president for "the tremendous opportunity to serve this country". Unlike the CFPB and Justice Department statutes, then, the plain text of the Homeland Security succession statute unambiguously precludes reliance upon the FVRA to fill vacancies in the offices of secretary and deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security-so long as there is someone now occupying the office of undersecretary for management. Like a ghoul who will wither in the light, Miller will stick to the shadows - pulling levers and instigating ugly policies meant to keep this country as white as possible.
Underwood spent last weekend at the U.S. -Mexico border. But this is the administration* she had chosen, and nothing more becomes her public service than her leaving of it.
Hogan Gidley, White House deputy press secretary, told reporters: "The separation of families, you know, the president has said before he does not like that".
The officials say the head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, L. Francis Cissna, and Homeland Security General Counsel John M. Mitnick are expected to be pushed out of their positions.
Meanwhile, Omar claimed that acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who is the Customs and Border Protection commissioner, oversaw physical separation of children from their families at the border, oversaw CBP agents fire tear gas "on a crowd of migrants seeking asylum", and failed to disclose the death of a migrant child to Congress.
Still, it was unclear how McAleenan would immediately assume the role.
