    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - President Joe Biden is going to name Tucson, Arizona Police Chief Chris Magnus, an outspoken critic of the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration, to run the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, the New York Times reported on Monday.

    Magnus was one of six nominations for top national security positions that Biden will announce later on Monday, the report said.

    Biden will also announce his nominations of former National Security Agency (NSA), head of resilience at Morgan Stanley, to run cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cybersecurity branch, and Robert Silvers, a senior DHS cybersecurity official under President Barack Obama as under secretary for policy, the report said.

    Biden will also name another former Obama administration official Jonathan Meyer as DHS general counsel and former National Security Council senior director for Afghanistan and Pakistan John Tien as DHS deputy secretary, the report said.
