The head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Jonathan Fahey, resigned Wednesday, after less than two weeks on the job, the Washington Examiner has learned.
Fahey, a former criminal prosecutor, resigned abruptly in what one person familiar with the situation said was due his being pressured to sign an agreement with ICE’s union. Two people familiar with the situation confirmed the news, first reported by BuzzFeed News. He was the seventh person to lead ICE under the Trump administration.
“He said the agreement is going to destroy the agency, I’m not signing it,” the source told the Washington Examiner.
