Biden's Pick to Lead CBP has Record of Opposing Immigration Enforcement Policies; Defended Sanctuary Laws After Kate Steinle's Killing; Cautioned Local Officials Against Ending Sanctuary City Policies; has ‘downright dangerous’ Record Opposing Enforcement Moves

Biden's pick to lead Customs and Border Protection has record of opposing immigration enforcement policies:
"As the police chief here, I'm deeply troubled by the Trump administration's campaign against 'sanctuary cities,' which refuse to turn over undocumented immigrants to federal authorities," Magnus wrote in 2017.
President Biden's nomination to lead the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, Tuscon police chief Chris Magnus, is being widely criticized and called unfit for the role by "immigration hawks."
Magnus's confirmation hearing is set at the Senate on Tuesday. A pitched battle of words is expected at that time, as critics are already making it clear that they are unhappy with the pick, and Border Patrol agents are considering early retirement.
According to Fox News, skeptical voices have been raised against Magnus because of his support for non-compliance with orders under the previous Trump administration. Because of this, immigration hawks are worried that this represents another move towards an "open borders" policy.
Most notably, Magnus has shown himself to be in support of the "sanctuary city" policy, where city governments and police departments act in pro of illegal migrants, at times against official orders. He's also been blasted for his opposition to stricter border policies by the Trump administration. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Nominee Defended Sanctuary Laws After Kate Steinle's Killing:
President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency privately defended sanctuary policies in the state of California following the killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle, who was shot by a seven-time felon, five-time deported illegal alien.
Tuscon Police Chief Chris Magnus, nominated by Biden to lead CBP, faces a hearing on Tuesday before a Senate committee.
This week, an Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) investigation shows details of Magnus’s record as police chief in Richmond, California, and Tuscon, Arizona, where he fiercely defended sanctuary policies that shield criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation, as well as the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization.
In one such instance, unearthed by IRLI, Magnus seemingly defended San Francisco, California’s sanctuary policies following Steinle’s killing where illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate was acquitted of her murder in February 2020. --->READ MORE HERE
