Mark Morgan, former head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), announced he is joining the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). FAIR is an immigration group that strongly advocates for border security and lower overall immigration levels. Morgan was named as head of CBP under the Trump administration and has been a leading advocate for his immigration policies.
Fox News reports:
“I’m honored to serve as a senior fellow with FAIR, which is dedicated to engaging in meaningful dialogue to influence, formulate and promote responsible immigration policies for the 21st Century and beyond,” Morgan said in a statement. “I am delighted to be part of the effort to seek out solutions to mitigate the tremendous burden and negative impact of uncontrolled immigration on our country’s national security and economic prosperity.”
FAIR, which has been supportive of many of Trump’s policies — and frequently urged him to go further to reform U.S. immigration law, particularly on issues related to legal immigration — has been similarly critical of Biden’s immigration policies since he took office.
“There are very few people with as much front-line knowledge of immigration policy as Mark,” FAIR President Dan Stein said in a statement. “As we reckon with an administration that appears to be bent on dismantling immigration enforcement and exercising executive power to maximize immigration even during a period of crisis and high unemployment, and efforts in Congress to grant mass amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens, Mark is uniquely qualified to assess the impact of those policies.”
The move to FAIR comes after Morgan, along with former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and former deputy acting Secretary Ken Cuccinelli joined the Heritage Foundation as fellows in the Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy — although Morgan’s role at FAIR is expected to be more extensive.
Since becoming president, Biden has acted swiftly to tear down Trump-era immigration policies. Within his first month in office, Biden has already halted all construction of the southern border wall and re-implemented the controversial “catch-and-release” policy.
