President-elect Donald Trump is expected to choose Gen. John F. Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general to lead the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
AS DHS secretary, the general would be in charge of the nation's main immigration-related agencies and is expected to implement Trump's campaign promises to crack down on illegal immigration and to limit legal immigration flows.
(The New York Times)
Kelly reportedly caught Trump's attention after Kelly's 2015 testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on the problems at the southwestern U.S. border and the need for improved border security. His thoughts on employment-based immigration are not yet known.
(The Huffington Post)
Trump campaigned with an enforcement-first message on immigration, focusing on border and worksite enforcement and protecting U.S. workers' jobs.

Trump's campaign for the White House was dominated by the debate over illegal immigration, but he also promised to reduce legal immigration to "within historic norms," overhaul the U.S. immigration system and protect U.S. workers from being displaced by temporary guest workers.
