In March 2018, it was reported that Nielson agreed with Transgender Individuals enacting the Presidential Memorandum for the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Homeland Security regarding military service.
She first said she had not seen the briefing from the intelligence community that Russia had tried to interfere with in the 2016 presidential election. She later said she agreed with the assessment by the intelligence community in May 2018.

Family Separation Policy
She testified at a congressional hearing on 15 May 2018 that she would enforce the then-newly enacted Trump administration policy of separating parents and children who crossed over the US-Mexico border, noting that similar separations happened in criminal courts “every day”.
She stated in June 2018 that the Trump administration did not maintain a policy of separating migrant families at the Southern border. The trump administration had in six weeks separated approximately 2,000 migrant children from their parents at that point.
In June 2018, she held a press briefing with White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders in June 2018 amid growing public outcry about the family separation policy. She accused the media and member of Congress of mischaracterizing the administration's policy. She dismissed the suggestion that the administration was using family separations as political leverage to force Congress to support Trump's broader immigration agenda or to deter migrants from coming to the United States. She also contradicted comments made earlier by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Chief of Staff John Kelly and senior adviser Stephen Miller.
She was present at Trump's signing of an Executive Order in June 2018 ending his “zero-tolerance” policy of separating children from families.
The Intercept reported in September 2018 that she had previously personally authorized the family separation policy after receiving a 23 April 2018 memo by the heads of three federal immigration agencies, US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, recommending the family separation policy for the express purpose of deterring migration. She had avoided attributing deterrence as the purpose of the policy at the time of the report.

On 25 November 2018 an incident occurred at the San Ysidro border crossing between California and Mexico.

Tear gas shot into the crowd by patrol officers. The crowd included families with small children. A video of a woman and two tear-gassed little children went viral. All the public and the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs protested the shooting of tear gas and demanded a thorough investigation.
In a statement she said the caravan had behaved aggressively in the past, using women and children as “human shields.” More than 600 convicted criminals traveling with the Caravan flood, she also said.
Migrant Children's Death in CBP Custody
A 7-year-old girl, Jakelin Caal died on 8 December 2018 in custody of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). On 24 December 2018 another Guatemalan boy, Felipe Gomez Alonso, 8, died in CBP custody.
In a statement on 26 December 2018, Nielsen claimed that the death was “deeply disturbing and tragic” and also cited shortcomings of the US immigration system as a result of a growing border crisis. She also claimed that she had directed her agency for children's bolser medical screening at the southwest border and had recruited the United States Coast Guard medical corps to provide an assessment of CBP's medical programs.
In May 2018, the New York Times reported that Nielsen considered resigning after she was berated by President Trump during a cabinet meeting for alleged failure to protect US borders. The friction between Nielsen and Trump was stated to have begun after she and other DHS officials renewed Trump's demand to separate undocumented immigrant parents from their children while in custody. She denied trying to leave.
