WASHINGTON — The White House on Tuesday fired John Mitnick, the general counsel for the Department of Homeland Security, after months of shake-up at an agency responsible for carrying out President Trump's immigration agenda.

"We thank John for this service, and we wish him well," a department spokeswoman said Tuesday night.

The White House this year has turned the Department of Homeland Security — which oversees securing the country's borders, disaster relief efforts and addressing domestic terrorism and cybersecurity threats — into a revolving door of officials, creating a void of permanent leadership.
