WASHINGTON (AP) — An outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump's hardline immigration policies has been named acting director of the agency that manages legal immigration, despite deep opposition from key Senate Republicans.

Ken Cuccinelli will oversee U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Servicesstarting Monday, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan announced.

But it's unclear if Trump will nominate Cuccinelli for the permanent position. That would require Senate confirmation, which could be difficult. Instead, Trump may simply opt to keep Cuccinelli in the acting position, a work-around to rules governing vacancies that sparked Senate objections.
