New Secretary of DHS Confirmed: Kirstjen Nielsen

New Secretary of DHS Confirmed: Kirstjen Nielsen

On other topics, Nielsen said she agreed with Kelly that a U.S. -Mexico border wall is unlikely to be a physical barrier from "sea to shining sea".

In a statement, Duke said she looked forward to working as Nielsen's deputy, and said Nielsen has "a deep understanding of the issues facing the Department".

Nielsen served as John Kelly's principal deputy chief of staff and was also his chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security. Nielsen is a close aide to John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff and former Secretary DHS. In the meantime, Duke took over DHS. The top position at the DHS has remained open since Kelly left to join the White House as chief of staff in late July.

Throughout her confirmation process, Ms. Nielsen failed to demonstrate that she would provide the steady experienced leadership - free from political interference from the White House - that the department needs.

After new lawsuit, Weinstein renews denials
Weinstein has denied any instances of "non-consensual" sex and has denied that there were ever any "acts of retaliation". All described their experiences at the hands of Weinstein and his attempt to sexually harass and assault them.

CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales first reported that President Donald Trump would nominate Nielsen.

"Not only does Nielsen's prior experience run contrary to Trump's populist-nationalist agenda on immigration, but her current views on illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens ignore the president's pro-American agenda", Breitbart stated Tuesday. Nielsen said the federal government should adjust its modeling and preparation for dealing with weather events related to climate changes, but refused to acknowledge the alleged human contributions to those changes.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said Nielsen has played a role in several questionable Trump administration decisions, including a travel ban to restrict entry from six mostly Muslim countries, termination of a program for young immigrants and what Harris called a "feeble response to Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey". It is hard to imagine how the head of one of our federal government's executive departments, who all report to the president, can ever be "free from political interference from the White House".

Elaine Duke had served as acting homeland security secretary since July.

Tottenham 3-0 APOEL: Spurs stars rated and slated
That is something Tottenham has not achieved in a month, collecting only two points from its last four fixtures. Llorente went on to set up the second. "Of course the striker always needs to score", he said.

"It is my greatest honor to serve as Secretary alongside the remarkable men and women of DHS", Nielsen wrote in a December 6 news release.

"Under a rational bill these individuals would be able to become lawful permanent residents with a pathway to citizenship", a Reuters report said, quoting Dougherty.

Tasked with the Sisyphean task of containing Trump, Kelly has for months been weeding out White House officials tied to his predecessor. However, Trump's recent statement indicates that instead of eliminating DACA, he merely wants to legitimize it by replacing Obama's executive orders with legislative authority.
