President Donald Trump has nominated Kirstjen Nielsen to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. “There is nothing more valuable than to feel safe in your own country,” Nielsen says.
Here’s what you should know:
Nielsen would become the second woman confirmed to serve as homeland security secretary, if the Senate approves.
She was chief of staff for then-DHS Secretary John Kelly — he’s now Trump’s chief of staff at the White House.
Nielsen is the first DHS nominee to have actually worked there before.
