Biden Announces CBP and USCIS Nominees

On April 12, President Joe Biden announced plans to nominate Tucson, Arizona, police chief Chris Magnus to serve as commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to serve as director of US Citizenship and Immigration (USCIS).

USCIS Nominee Ur Jaddou

Jaddou has been widely speculated as the incoming head of USCIS according to CNN, which oversees the US legal immigration system. She was formerly chief counsel at USCIS under President Barack Obama and led the Biden-Harris Department of Homeland Security transition review team.
