WASHINGTON — Shortly before ousting Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, President Donald Trump said he would take an even “tougher” tack on border policies that for more than two years, by his own measure, have failed to deter immigration.

Some fear that may include a return of the reviled family separations that Trump was forced to back away from last year, as well as more firings.

But experts cautioned that replacing high-level personnel may not be enough to salvage an immigration policy that isn’t working and has been reined in by the courts and Congress.
