The White House said on Wednesday that Donald Trump will nominate Kirstjen Nielsen to serve as his next secretary of homeland security.

Her detractors viewed her as brusque and, at times, unresponsive, as she worked with Kelly to streamline West Wing operations and instill discipline in a White House often void of it.
Nielsen had served as Kelly's deputy at DHS and followed him to the White House when he replaced Priebus.
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.
Neilsen is an expert in homeland and national security policy.

Prior to Nielsen's work for the current administration, she consulted on homeland security and preparedness matters, according to her biography at The George Washington University where she was a senior fellow at the school's Center for Cyber and Homeland Security. "I think her no-nonsense, business-like manner is what earned the confidence, first of General Kelly, and now the President".
