Sen. Ron Johnson praises President's pick for Homeland Security Secretary

US President Donald Trump has nominated White House deputy chief of staff Kirstjen Nielsen to be the next US homeland security secretary.

If confirmed, Ms. Nielsen would replace John F. Kelly, who was homeland security secretary until he left in July to serve as the White House chief of staff and bring discipline and direction to a West Wing plagued by disorganization and infighting.

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

For instance, Michael McCaul, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee was also among those that were being considered for the position. "There will be no on-the-job training, she's ready from day one, " Trump said.

Ms. Nielsen was General Kelly's number two at DHS and later the White House.

"I share the President's commitment to the security of the county and the safety of the American people", she said. She's the first nominee to lead DHS to have previously worked there.

Her nomination must now be confirmed by a vote in the Senate. Before she worked in the Trump administration, Nielsen founded a risk and security management consulting firm.

Mr. Kelly pushed hard for her selection, making a personal appeal to Mr. Trump during a monthslong search process.

Among others under consideration for the DHS post were Energy Secretary Rick Perry and acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke. She was forced to clarify her claim last month that the federal response to Maria is "a good news story".

"I am pleased that the President has finally made a nomination for Secretary of Homeland Security after letting the critical national security position remain vacant as the nation faced multiple major hurricanes and a domestic terrorism attack".
