BREAKING: Trump Just Fired The Border Patrol Chief

CBS News -- 

The Border Patrol chief is leaving the agency on the heels of President Trump’s announcement of an ambitious plan to build a massive wall at the Mexican border and hire 5,000 Border Patrol agents.

Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan was asked to resign earlier this week by the acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the agency, CBS News has learned.

Morgan’s departure was part of an effort by the incoming administration at the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection to show the agency will be headed in a new direction, a source told CBS News.

Customs and Border Protection said Thursday that Morgan’s last official day in office will be Tuesday.
