Trump's DHS nominee: No need for full border wall

Trump's DHS nominee: No need for full border wall”

Nielsen was Kelly's top deputy at the DHS and moved with him to the White House, where she helped the retired general reorder a chaotic executive branch that marked the first months of the Trump administration.

Among the signers were former Homeland Security (DHS) secretaries Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, both Republicans who served under former President George W. Bush.

If confirmed by the Senate, Nielsen would take the reins at a sprawling department with more than 240,000 employees that is responsible for USA border and airport security, immigration policy, disaster response, refugee admissions and other matters.

The Senate Homeland Security Committee will hold a confirmation hearing for Nielsen on Wednesday.

Senators grilled her during the hearing about climate change, port security, deferring deportation for children brought to the country illegally, and combating violent extremism, including by white supremacists. She said undocumented children brought to the United States illegally will not be a priority for deportation if she is confirmed, and that criminals would be.

Additionally, Breitbart News reported on Nielsen's involvement with the Bush administration's response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when more than 30,000 illegal aliens and foreign workers were able to come to the U.S.to take American blue-collar jobs which those devastated by the natural disaster had hoped to get. For example on climate change, Nielsen declined to say she believes humans caused it.

Nielsen later pledged that she would review the science.

"Technology plays a key part, and we can't forget it", she said.

"It's not just physical barriers", Nielsen said.
