The head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection stepped down from his job late Saturday following a year of record migrant apprehensions at the southern border.

The White House announced that CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus offered his resignation, and that President Biden has accepted.

“President Biden appreciates Commissioner Magnus’ nearly forty years of service and the contributions he made to police reform during his tenure as police chief in three U.S. cities,” said press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in a statement. “The President thanks Mr. Magnus for his service at CBP and wishes him well.”
