Interesting backstory to the firing from a "fake news" source. Its seems patently obvious that Trump wants to create a crisis, not solve one.

Senior administration officials say that Trump then ordered Nielsen and Pompeo to shut down the port of El Paso the next day, Friday, March 22, at noon. The plan was that in subsequent days the Trump administration would shut down other ports.
Nielsen told Trump that would be a bad and even dangerous idea, and that the governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, has been very supportive of the President.

She proposed an alternative plan that would slow down entries at legal ports. She argued that if you close all the ports of entry all you would be doing is ending legal trade and travel, but migrants will just go between ports.
According to two people in the room, the President said: "I don't care."

I suspect that his choice to start with El Paso might have something to do with Beto.

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: There was a thread a few days ago where it was said that DeVos is the most dangerous person on Trump's team. It's difficult to argue with that. But if I were to argue with that conclusion, it would be to say that Miller is the most dangerous.
