Homeland Security Nominee Defends Her Inexperience


WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats pressed Kirstjen Nielsen, President Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Homeland Security, during her confirmation hearing on Wednesday about her inexperience and how she would carry out his immigration agenda.

But she faced a mostly deferential Senate Homeland Security Committee, a sign that she is likely to be easily confirmed as the sixth person to lead the agency.

Ms. Nielsen pledged to be tough on border security but acknowledged that Mr. Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall across the entire southern border was unrealistic.

There is no need for a wall from sea to shining sea,” she said, adding that, as the secretary, she would push for technological solutions and consult the Border Patrol and other agencies about where a wall made sense.
