WASHINGTON, Nov 12 U.S. President Joe Biden has confidence in everyone of her appointees, including the head of Customs and Border Protection, Chris Magnus, who is being forced to step down, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said.
“The president has confidence in those he appoints,” she told reporters
The event was broadcast by the White House website.
Jean-Pierre did not comment on the information that appeared in the media about calls for the resignation of Magnus, forwarding the question to the ministry internal security.
Magnus is forced to resign amid a record number of cases of illegal crossing of the southern border of the country. He told reporters that this week the head of the US Department of Homeland Security, which includes the border service, asked him to resign, threatening to fire him if he refused. However, according to Magnus, he is pleased with the progress he has made and intends to keep working.
