Sinema introduced Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus at his nomination hearing
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema—Chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Border Management—introduced Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus and highlighted his qualifications at his nomination hearing for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner.
“I appreciate the opportunity to introduce Chris Magnus, an exceptional nominee to be Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection…Having someone such as Chief Magnus leading CBP is the best way our nation can better secure the border, better protect our communities, and ensure migrants are treated fairly and humanely,” said Sinema, Chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Border Management.
Sinema highlighted Chief Magnus’s history of service and qualifications at today’s Senate Finance Committee nomination hearing to be Customs and Border Protection Commissioner. Chief Magnus is currently the Tucson Police Chief, and formerly served as Police Chief of Fargo, North Dakota. Sinema highlighted how Chief Magnus’s background as an experienced law enforcement professional on both the Northern and Southwestern borders has prepared him to help CBP overcome and meet the challenges at our borders.
As Chair of the Subcommittee on Border Management, Sinema is working directly with federal agencies and leaders in Arizona to ensure the administration takes meaningful steps to support Arizona’s border communities and NGOs, secure the border, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and treat all migrants and unaccompanied children fairly and humanely.
