Rep. Grijalva Congratulates Tucson Police Chief Magnus on Confirmation to Lead CBP

WASHINGTON – Late Tuesday evening, the Senate confirmed former Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus as the next Commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The vote passed 50 to 47. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-03) issued the following statement:

“I congratulate Chief Magnus on his appointment and confirmation to lead CBP. He will bring decades of law enforcement and community policing experience in the border region to the agency and ensure its policies are more transparent, accountable, humane and evidence-based. We entrust you to right a ship that steered off course under the previous administration, put an end to failed Trump-era border policies, and reshape the agency to reflect our values. I look forward to continue our shared work to ensure that our communities along the border in Arizona and across the country remain safe, welcoming and prosperous.”
