Until a cabinet-level Department of Immigration is created, it might help.

If Trump were to create such a position and vest it in someone who is known to speak with the president's voice, can there be any doubt that he or she would be closely attended by whoever is either permanently or acting in the positions of DHS secretary, or deputy secretary, or head of the three agencies within DHS that exist to administer and control immigration?
