White House: Pres. Trump picks deputy chief of staff to lead DHS

CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales has confirmed President Trump will nominate Kirstjen Nielsen to be the next homeland security secretary.

One former Homeland Security official, who asked for anonymity so that the person could speak candidly, says the pick is a controversial one, and that people at the department are already speaking about leaving if the nomination moves forward.

Kirstjen Nielsen, left, will be nominated to replace her former boss, John Kelly, as Secretary of Homeland Security.

Campos had been investigating an alarm that went off in another room on the same floor, signaling that a door had been left open. At least 23 guns - 12 of which were equipped with bump stocks, or rapid-fire devices - were found inside Paddock's hotel room.

Putting Nielsen into the Homeland Security post will allow Trump and Kelly to keep a close eye on the department, but getting her out of the White House could permit some relaxing of Kelly's strictness. "She's an experienced manager, she's an implementer, she knows how to get under the hood and figure out what needs to be connected to what".

She also worked for the ransportation and Security Administration under George W Bush. After Kelly's departure from DHS in late July, former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned in late September following reports that he misused more than $1 million taxpayer dollars by chartering private airplanes and using military aircraft for his personal travel.

According to Politico, multiple Trump loyalists even privately referred to Nielsen as "Nurse Ratched", the fictional character from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" known for her austere and corrupt influence over the mental institution she managed.
