Pres. Trump Announces Former Border Chief Mark Morgan As Next ICE Director

President Trump announces Mark Morgan, former Border Patrol Chief under President Obama, will take over as chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The president made the announcement on twitter Sunday saying, “Mark is a true believer and American Patriot. He will do a great job!”

In a tweet later Sunday, the president also announced Matt Albence, the current acting chief, would serve in his role until Morgan is sworn in.

President Trump touted Albence’s effort saying, “Matt is tough and dedicated and has my full support to deploy ICE to the maximum extent of the law!”

President Trump’s announcement comes just weeks after former Acting ICE Director Ron Vitiello stepped down from his role at the agency.
