U.S. Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan has resigned only a day after President Trump announced and signed the executive
order to build a wall on the Mexican border.
The ThruthMonitor said, citing U.S officials, Morgan was no longer present on his post, but it was not clear if he resigned or asked to leave.
Morgan, took office in October, he briefly led the internal affairs department at the Border Patrol’s parent agency before heading the agency of 20,000 agents.
He was he first outsider to lead the agency since founded in 1924.
The National Border Patrol Council advocated for an insider to lead the agency, Morgan clashed with the Border Patrol’s union since the early start.
One of the earliest promises at Trump’s campaign was that he would build a wall on the Mexican border and that Mexico is going pay for it.
By signing the order he fulfilled part of the pledge though Mexico is not willing to pay for it .
“This is a law enforcement agency,” Trump said during his announcement following the order during a visit to the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday.“But for too long, your officers and agents haven’t been allowed to properly do their jobs.
“From here on out, I’m asking all of you to enforce the laws of the United States of America. They will be enforced and enforced strongly.”
Mexico’s president cancelled the planned meeting with Trump.
