Former DHS chief of staff nominated to be homeland security secretary

Former DHS chief of staff nominated to be homeland security secretary”

"Mr. President, if confirmed, it will be the highest honor of my life to again work with and support these remarkable public servants and to continue to serve all of the American people".

Trump declared his option in a disclosure that considered Ms. Nielsen's sizeable competent wisdom in the domain of homeland security policy and procedure, cyber security, crucial infrastructure and exigency management.

In addition, Nielsen was the senior legislative policy director for the Transportation and Security Administration, which operates under DHS, during the Bush administration.

"There will be no on-the-job training", he said. "I look forward to working closely with the Administration and Ranking Member McCaskill to expedite the consideration of Ms. Nielsen's nomination and help make America safer and more secure".

She has a reputation as an expert on cybersecurity matters, and if confirmed, she would be the first former DHS employee to run the department.

The big question is on whether or not he will succeed at sparking about order in the West Wing which is at the moment plagued by infighting and disorganization. Elaine Duke has been serving as acting DHS secretary since then.

"I think her credentials are being a little bit inflated", said the former official, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.

Former DHS Secretary Tom Ridge - the first person to ever hold the position, which President George W. Bush created in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks - praised Nielsen in a statement, calling her a "homeland security veteran" who is "extremely well versed" in the threats facing the U.S.

While at the Bush White House she was in charge of emergency preparedness, and came in for criticism in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
