The Senate must approve the appointment.
Magnus, who has been a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump’s anti-immigration policies, will join the ranks of new leaders at the Department of Homeland Security if the Senate confirms his appointment.
Magnus ‘ planned nomination was first reported by the New York Times.
Magnus served in the Lansing, Michigan Police Department and was the chief of police for the cities of Fargo in North Dakota and Richmond in California. He is now the head of the Tucson, Arizona police department.
“”In each of these cities, Magnus has earned a reputation as a progressive leader focused on building relationships between police and society, implementing advanced evidence–based techniques, advancing reform, and ensuring police accountability,” a White House source said.
The source also said that Biden plans to appoint Ur Judda to the post of head of the Citizenship and Immigration Services.
