President Joe Biden’s senior adviser for migration Tyler Moran is fleeing the sinking ship that is the Biden White House at the end of January. Moran has only been in that role since July.
Biden’s chief domestic policy adviser Susan Rice said, “Tyler has been an invaluable member of our team since the transition and a tremendous asset in our effort to rebuild a fair and humane immigration system.”
According to Politico: “It’s the latest change-up for the Biden team handling migration and the border. Moran replaced AMY POPE over the summer. ROBERTA JACOBSON, the Biden team’s “border czar” early on, departed in April.
“There have been some mid and low-level aides who have departed as well. The White House said they didn’t have a replacement for Moran yet but are confident that six weeks gives them enough time.”
Ater Moran replaced Pope the White House issued a statement that said:
“Amy had always intended to join the Biden Administration for a short time with an expected departure in the mid-summer. Tyler has been a key part of the team dating back to the Biden-Harris Transition and has been preparing for this transition for a little while now.”
From Fox News:
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Data, encounters with migrants at the southern border rose from 189,034 in June to 213,593 in July.
The numbers began to drop slightly in August and September, going from 209,840 to 192,001. But those numbers were also a sharp departure from the same time period in 2019 and 2020, more than doubling the June 2019 high of 104,311.
"While she always said that she would only stay for a year, I’m very sorry that we’ll be losing her in January and I’m deeply grateful for every day she has committed to this work,” said Susan Rice, domestic policy advisor at the White House, in a statement.— Priscilla Alvarez (@priscialva) December 14, 2021
