Biden Taps Anti-Trump Critics to Lead Immigration Agency

President Biden on Monday nominated two vocal Trump critics to fill top immigration and border policy spots in his administration.

Biden pegged Tucson, Ariz., Police Chief Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The two agencies are components of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). CBP oversees border and port-of-entry operations, while USCIS is responsible for granting visas, permanent residences and naturalizations.

CBP is also the parent agency of the U.S. Border Patrol, and the primary agency in charge of initial intake of asylum seekers, including unaccompanied minors, at the border.
