WASHINGTON, D.C. – President-elect Donald Trump today announced his intent to nominate General John Kelly as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) issued the following statement on the heels of the announcement:

Chairman McCaul: “General John Kelly is a strong leader with in-depth knowledge about the most crucial homeland security issues facing the United States. I am confident he will serve our country well as the next Secretary of Homeland Security. At a time when we face grave danger from terrorists to cyber criminals, it is imperative we have a steady, decisive Secretary at the helm.
