Nielsen out at Homeland Security | TheHill
President Trump announced Sunday that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will leave her post.
Nielsen led the sprawling department’s efforts on immigration enforcement, disaster relief, election security and cybersecurity since she joined the Cabinet in December 2017.
Nielsen took over for close ally, John Kelly, as the head of DHS after he vacated the role to serve as White House chief of staff. Kelly left the White House at the end of 2018.
