Acting ICE director is resigning, DHS official says [View all]

Source: CNN

Jonathan Fahey is resigning as acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to a Department of Homeland Security official, only weeks after assuming the post.

Fahey's departure is the latest in a string of leadership changes at the Department of Homeland Security, and he is the most recent acting ICE director to step down. Last month, Fahey's predecessor -- Tony Pham -- departed. Pham had assumed the post last August.


ICE -- an agency under DHS -- has had six directors under President Donald Trump. The agency has never had a Senate confirmed director during the Trump administration.

Fahey, a political appointee, previously served as acting principal legal adviser at the agency, overseeing ICE's legal portfolio. He took over the acting chief post at ICE on December 31. It's unclear what prompted Fahey's departure or who his successor will be.
