Trump nominates Kirstjen Nielsen to be DHS Secretary

President Trump Wednesday nominated White House Deputy Chief of Staff Kirstjen Nielsen to be the new Secretary of Homeland Security.

If confirmed, Nielsen would replace White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Kelly served as Trump’s DHS chief for just over six months before replacing Reince Priebus as chief of staff July 31. Elaine Duke has been filling in as acting secretary in the meantime.

Nielsen would be the first former DHS staffer to lead the department, which was created by former President George W. Bush in 2003.

 Nielsen had served as Kelly’s deputy at DHS and followed him to the White House when he replaced Priebus. Her departure leaves Kelly looking to fill another crucial administrative vacancy.

    She has her hands full, listened to this, she has an impressive resume’. The Homeland Security has never been more important, happy Trump changing the rules for people running into America screaming they are refugees, when all they are is free loaders.

      “all they are is free loaders”

      Rather like the UN, and the muslim homosexual Kenyan who sponsored them.

        Trump has made serious changes in the refugee program. No more just running in here and calling themselves refugees, back to the original laws, they have to prove it.

    My guess is this is Kelly’s pick not Trumps. Kirstjen Nielsen is educated and could fill any of a number of job in the administration. I’m looking forward to her congressional hearings to see what she will say but it looks like she is a good pick.
