According to his Bio, Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas is a Cuban-American government official and attorney who has served as the seventh United States Secretary of Homeland Security since February 2, 2021. He is now under investigation, and members of Congress are asking that he resign.
A top border control agent who has watched the immense human misery and out-of-control criminality occurring at the US Southern border under Mayorkas and Biden’s watch slams both men for acting like traitors.
Chris Magnus resigned as the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, according to news sources.
These allegations stated that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and others forced him out and sought to blame him for many of the problems at the southern border, precisely as Mayorkas’ activities were under review.a
“The President has accepted the resignation of Christopher Magnus, the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. President Biden appreciates Commissioner Magnus’ nearly forty years of service and the contributions he made to police reform during his tenure as police chief in three U.S. cities. The President thanks Mr. Magnus for his service at CBP and wishes him well,” the White House said in a statement.
Magnus said he was resigning “immediately” in his letter.
“Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Senate-confirmed Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection over the past year. It has been a privilege and honor to be part of your administration,” he said. “I am submitting my resignation effective immediately but wish you and your administration the very best going forward. Thank you again for this tremendous opportunity.”
“Magnus will join an organization focused on police reform and he wasted little time slamming the Biden administration,” Martin Walsh reported for Conservative Brief, adding more details to the story:
“Now he’s joining the Policing Project, a nonprofit at NYU’s School of Law that’s focused on reforming police departments around the country. He says questions about hiring, training, and reform exist across all levels of law enforcement. Before joining CBP, Magnus spent 40 years heading police departments, most recently in Tucson. As a senior adviser for public safety at the Policing Project, he says he wants to put what he learned both at CBP and within local departments into practice,” Front Desk reported.
“At CBP for example, that’s going to involve migrants and local community members and stakeholders dealing with issues at the border, you know, issues of use of force apply across the board. My experience is that communities first of all want agencies to be transparent about what’s going on, even when the news isn’t always good. They want data on the website. … They want body camera footage to be available. But they also want accountability in the form of assurance that if they make a complaint, it’s going to be handled,” Magnus said.
