Nielsen, the report said, viewed Trump's "rant as directed mostly at her and told associates after the meeting that she should not continue in the job if the president did not view her as effective".
Two unnamed sources told the Times that Nielsen drafted a resignation letter but has not submitted to the president.
The Trump administration, under US Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, has moved to revoke this special status and to expel tens of thousands of protected immigrants. "I share his frustration", Nielsen said, according to CNN.
According to DHS data, there were about 30,186 total cases of foreign nationals claiming credible fear and thus requesting asylum in the USA between October and December 2017 - at the same time that an amnesty for illegal aliens was being considered by Congress and President Trump's administration. "The Secretary is hard at work today on the President's security-focused agenda and supporting the men and women of @DHSgov", Houlton wrote.

Nielsen, 45, who was named to the post after John Kelly was named chief of staff, oversees 20,000 border agents through Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Hogan Gidley, a White House spokesman, did not respond to emails and phone calls seeking comment.
Trump's outburst was not only aimed at Nielsen, according to the Times, but the entire cabinet for not making enough progress in stopping illegal immigration and ensuring border security.

Yates now leads Tom Dumoulin by 16s in the race for the pink jersey, while Chaves' victory lifts him up into third place. Saturday's eighth stage is a 208km ride from Praia a Mare to Montevergine di Mercogliano.
Trump won the 2016 election largely on his promise to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall that would totally shut down the flow of immigrants. "Give me some reinforcements, please", he urged the crowd, referring to Republicans in Congress who have balked at the billions of dollars he has requested for border security. The president's anger was stoked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who remarked that the Department of Homeland Security could just arrest people at the border, the source said.
