Nielsen, who is a protegee of John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, has drafted a resignation letter but has not submitted it, according to two of the people.

What Trump didn't note when conveying those orders, however, was that the US has a domestic and worldwide legal obligation to process any immigrant who comes to its borders seeking asylum.

Trump's entire cabinet reportedly bore witness to the scolding, which the Times said was just a portion of a long rant about how the administration on the whole was falling short of its stated goal to tighten border security and curb illegal immigration.

During the meeting, Trump blamed Nielsen for what he said was her failure to secure US borders, the newspaper cited the officials as saying.

Following the release of the report, Nielsen said in a statement that Trump "is rightly frustrated" on border security issues.

The New York Times reported Thursday that the president has growing increasingly angry with Nielsen over what he feels is the country's inability to adequately secure its border.

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

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". "I share his frustration", Nielsen said in a statement.

"The @nytimes article alleging that the Secretary drafted a resignation letter yesterday and was close to resigning is false", tweeted Homeland Security spokesman Tyler Houlton. "The Secretary is hard at work today on the President's security-focused agenda".

Donald Trump had grown angry in recent weeks for reports of a roughly 1,200-person "caravan" of asylum-seekers from Central America traveling toward the US border. He repeatedly claimed credit for the fact that during his first year in office, illegal border crossings dropped to their lowest levels in decades.

Trump reportedly railed against Nielsen on Wednesday, saying that she failed to adequately secure the United States border.

"Border security is the most basic and necessary responsibility of a sovereign nation", she continued. This week, the Justice Department announced that it would be prosecuting 100 percent of illegal border crossings-a decision that will involve separating more families, removing children from their parents when they are apprehended and detained.

"I will build a great wall - and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me - and I'll build them very inexpensively", Trump said in a campaign rally in 2015.

Trump's tirade went on so long that many present began fidgeting in their seats and flashing grimaces, White House aides said. According to the Times, the president had viewed Nielsen and other D.H.S. officials as resistant to the family-separation policy, but the West Wing ultimately won out.
