    Biden’s Border Czar Runs with Tail Between Legs After What He Got Caught Doing – Is This Why It’s So Bad?

    Published on

    U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas gave U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Chris Magnus an ultimatum this week: resign from your job or get the boot.

    The decision was made in response to a shocking revelation published by Politico last month, which quoted five unnamed individuals and claimed Magnus had reportedly lost interest in guarding the southern border of the United States. According to the reports, the CBP director was “disengaged” from his work and frequently nodded off during crucial meetings and disparaged other government organizations.

    Magnus stated to the Los Angeles Times on Friday that he wouldn’t leave his position before doing so the following day.

    Before submitting his resignation, Magnus told the source, “I expressed to him that I felt there was no justification for me to resign when I still cared deeply about the work I was doing and felt that that work was focused on the things I was hired to do in the first place.”

    But when Magnus delivered his resignation letter to the Biden administration on Saturday, all parties smiled for the camera.

    “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,” his resignation letter stated.

    In a statement, the White House reacted and expressed gratitude for his work as a police chief and CBP commissioner.

    “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,” Fox News quoted Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, as saying in a statement.

    The L.A. Times quoted anonymous Biden administration officials who weren’t particularly complimentary of Magnus and his management style. According to some reports, Magnus was simply in over his head because he hadn’t been at the position long enough to understand how the organization operated.

    Another official said Magnus skipped important meetings on various immigration topics, all at a time when the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border was spiraling out of control — as it continues to do so currently.

    Ron Vitiello, a former Border Patrol chief, told the L.A. Times that the resignation of the CBP commissioner is an unneeded distraction for an agency struggling to conduct its duties properly.

    “I’m concerned about the workforce. This is another thing they have on their plate that is unnecessary,” Vitiello said. “This is a distraction that takes away from the hard work they are doing and the crisis they are in.” CONTINUE READING…
