The acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Tony Pham, is set to resign at the end of the year reports say.
According to Fox News:
Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tony Pham is expected to resign by the end of the year, sources told Fox News on Friday.
Pham replaced Matt Albence as acting head of the enforcement agency in August and has since headed the agency in a number of operations targeting criminal illegal immigrants across the country — including in “sanctuary” cities.
Pham came to the U.S. as a refugee from Vietnam when he was 2 years old. In 1985, Pham became a U.S. citizen, before eventually going to law school and then becoming a prosecutor, handling narcotics, gang and firearms cases. He would also serve as superintendent of a jail in Virginia.
In January 2020, he became the ICE principal legal advisor, before replacing Albence in August.
Joe Biden has promised to stop ICE deportations for 100 days if he assumes the office of the presidency.
