  • Synagogue visit: "We actually conducted a site visit [to the Pittsburgh synagogue] with our protective security adviser in the area," Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Fox News Sunday, per Politico. "This is something we often do."
  • "Every possible action": "Do not come. You will not be allowed in," Nielsen said about the migrant caravan moving through Mexico, per the Washington Examiner. "I think what the president is making clear is every possible action, authority, executive program is on the table to ensure it is clear that there is a right and legal way to come into this country, and no other ways will be tolerated."
