Joe Biden dismissed the head of the US Border Patrol appointed by Donald Trump.

Rodney Scott, who assumed the position in February 2020, announced that he had received a letter informing him of his "reassignment" and explained that he would remain in the position for about 60 days until the transition takes place.

In May alone, CBP detained more than 180,000 migrants at the southern border, the highest number recorded in a month in the past two decades.

The government of US President Joe Biden has removed the head of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Rodney Scott, appointed during former President Donald Trump (2017-2021), reported this Wednesday the affected person himself.

In a message on his personal Facebook account, Rodney explained that he had received a letter informing him of his "reassignment."

He clarified that the recipient of this letter usually has three options "a relocation, a reassignment or withdrawal." It is not a disciplinary action nor has to offer the reason.

"Simply the needs of the service motivate the reassignment so that the new Administration can place the person who is required in the position," he said.

At the moment, the US Executive. Has not confirmed this measure.

Following his announcement, Scott, who assumed the position in February 2020, announced that he would remain in office for about 60 days until the transition occurs.

The television network CNN anticipated that Scott would be temporarily replaced by what has been the deputy chief of CBP, Raúl Ortiz.

Since the arrival of Biden to the Presidency last January, the removal of Scott was expected, who appeared alongside Trump in several electoral events defending the heavy hand on immigration during the campaign for the elections last November, which the Democrat won.

The crisis erupted in the first months of Biden's mandate, with large numbers of migrants arriving from the Mexican border.

In May alone, CBP detained more than 180,000 migrants at the southern border, the highest number recorded in a month in the past two decades.

Biden entrusted his vice president, Kamala Harris, with the management of the migration crisis at the end of March. However, the arrival of undocumented immigrants has not stopped increasing in recent months.
