Duke served as Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Management at the department under both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. She has had more than 28 years of experience with the federal government.
Duke's nomination for Deputy Secretary of DHS received a hearing before the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs in March 2017. In April, she was confirmed by a vote of 85-14.
I am not sure whether Duke has immigration experience.
CNN reports that Duke went to New Hampshire College for her undergraduate degree in business and received an MBA from Chaminade University of Honolulu. According to DHS, Duke has received honors during her public service career, including the Presidential Meritorious Rank Award, the DHS Secretary's Medal, the TSA Silver Medal for Customer Service, the Department of the Army Commander's Award for Public Service, and the Coast Guard's Distinguished Public Service Medal.
