In a tweet, President Donald Trump named Mark Morgan to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE): “I am pleased to inform all of those that believe in a strong, fair and sound Immigration Policy that Mark Morgan will be joining the Trump Administration as the head of our hard working men and women of ICE. Mark is a true believer and American Patriot. He will do a great job!” Mr. Morgan’s appointment must be confirmed by the Senate.
Mr. Morgan previously was chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in the last months of the Obama administration and a former agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He has publicly stated that he backs President Trump’s border wall, among other policies.
