“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!”
President Trump (from Twitter)
Its no secret that President Trump has placed emphasis on securing our borders and promoting security. The appointment of Mark Morgan will support this mission of a more secure border. Morgan was the head of Border Patrol during the Obama administration and has openly criticized Congress’ attempts to handle the migration crisis.
Morgan has been named the the head of ICE because President Trump is rewarding the merits of strict enforcement of immigration laws. Morgan has recently been seen explaining the importance to fight against dangerous illegal migrants. He has explained the importance of stopping gang members from making it into the United States. In particular, Morgan wants to keep members of MS-13 out of the country.
Morgan is a Marine who worked with the FBI in the El Paso office close to the Mexican border. This has given him experiences that make him an excellent candidate to run ICE. While a member in the El Paso office, he worked with border patrol to implement policy changes that reduced officer involved shootings from 55 to 15 in one year.
Mark Morgan is part of the team that is making America safer and making our borders tighter. We are able to benefit from the work he will do while he leads ICE and assists President Trump in his mission to build the wall. We must stand with our President now more than ever and support his decision to keep empowering great men and women.
