Nielsen condemns shipments of parcel bombs in California

Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, described in San Diego, California (USA), as "cowardly" acts, the shipments of bomb packages shortly after the confirmation of the arrest of a suspect to send a dozen to figures of the Democratic Party.

During his visit to the border between Caléxico (California) and Mexico, where he presented a section of the reinforced fence, he began his speech condemning the acts that took place between Monday and Friday.

"The Americans will not tolerate these types of threats and we will not be intimidated by attempts or acts of intimidation," the official emphasized.

Nielsen assured that all the resources of his department are available for investigation and that they work with the Bureau of Federal Investigations (FBI), as well as the state and local agencies involved to apply the full weight of justice to whoever is responsible.

The secretary did not want to delve into details of the investigation, given that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will today offer a press conference in which the available information will be expanded.

Nielsen reiterated the call to the American people to denounce any suspicious act that could result in a threat.

Authorities identified a detainee today for sending a dozen bomb packages to Democratic Party figures such as Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, and a resident of Florida.

They have also seized a white van, full of photos of President Donald Trump and with threatening images against personalities such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or filmmaker Michael Moore.
