The Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol has resigned his post just one day after President trump signed executive orders aimed at increasing border security, according to CNN.
CNN says that it’s not clear whether Morgan was asked to leave. Customs and Border Protection’s Chief Kevin McAleenan thanked Morgan for his service and wished him well.
During the presidential election, Morgan had differing opinions with the Border Patrol’s Union, which endorsed Trump.
Morgan was previously the FBI’s Special Agent in Charge of the El Paso Division, overseeing major investigations in the area – including the EPISD cheating scandal.
He leaves the office just seven months after being named to the post, and only three since taking office. Morgan’s last official day with Border Patrol will be on Tuesday.
