WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden plans to appoint Chris Magnus, the chief of police in Tucson, Arizona, to head U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a White House official said Monday.
Magnus, a critic of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, is among the new leaders installed in the Department of Homeland Security. His appointment must be confirmed by the US Senate.
The New York Times first reported on the CBP appointment.
Magnus served in the Lansing, Michigan Police Department and was chief of police in the cities of Fargo, North Dakota and Richmond, California before landing in Tucson, Arizona, the officer said.
“In each of these cities, Chief Magnus developed a reputation as a progressive police leader who focused on building police-community relationships, implementing evidence-based best practices, promoting reform and insisting on police accountability,” the official said in a statement.
Biden also planned to appoint Ur Jaddou to head the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, the official said.
