Johnson Applauds Senate Confirmation of Kirstjen Nielsen as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee,  had this to say following the confirmation by the full Senate of Kirstjen Nielsen to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security:

“Kirstjen Nielsen’s experience in both the public and private sectors makes her the right person to lead this department.  Her work in and around the department since its creation, as well as her knowledge of cybersecurity, risk management and critical infrastructure, should serve her well in confronting the daunting threats to our homeland. I applaud my colleagues for confirming Ms. Nielsen as the secretary, and I look forward to working with her as she takes on the challenges at the department.”
