Trump Names New ICE Director Who Promises To Get Tough At Border


President Trump just announced his new chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Mark Morgan has the experience and more importantly, he realizes how bad the crisis is ay the border.

He also served un President Obama, showing the Democrats this is a bipartisan issue that needs fixing. From Townhall:

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to announce his decision to tap the former head of the U.S. Border Patrol under President Barack Obama, Mark Morgan, as the new chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Morgan will replace acting ICE Director Ronald Vitiello.


Morgan has opposed Congress’ attempts to downplay the crisis taking place on the United States-Mexico border. Specifically, he has called for a fix to the “Flores Settlement,” which prevents illegal aliens from being detained for more than 20 days.

He previously told Fox News he supports sending illegal aliens to sanctuary cities.

“Border Patrol, ICE, their facilities are overwhelmed, the faith-based organizations and other non-governmental organizations are overwhelmed,” Morgan said. “They have no choice. They’re going to have to start pushing these individuals out. Shouldn’t we kind of share the burden throughout the country?”

Although he served during the last six months of the Obama administration, Morgan has supported Trump’s tough immigration stance.

“I’m here and I’ve broken my silence for one reason: because it’s fact,” Morgan said. “What the president is saying and what they’re trying to do as far as the policy goes, it’s based on reality and fact and I know that because he’s listening to the experts.

Not political pundits, not talking heads, he is listening to experts. Anyone who says this a manufactured crisis is absolutely misleading the American people.”

From Fox News:

Speaking on “America’s Newsroom” last week, Morgan said that Congress has “shown again and again their failure to do what’s right” to fix the problem.

“They want to eat the elephant in one bite instead of looking at what they need to do right now,” he said.

Morgan said what Congress should be doing is fixing the so-called Flores Settlement, which prevents migrant families and children caught crossing the border illegally from being detained for more than 20 days.
