Yesterday, the Senate confirmed Chris Magnus to be the head of Customs & Border Protection. The CBP has been without an official leader since 2019.
Magnus had been serving as the police chief in Tuscon, Arizona. He previously served as the police chief in Fargo, North Dakota (woot, woot) and in Richmond, California. Of note, Magnus is gay, making him the first openly gay leader of CBP.
Magnus was confirmed to the position by a mostly party-line vote of 50-47 (with Sen. Collins joining the dems).
