Morgan served as the Chief of the Border Patrol during the last several months of the Obama Administration [PDF version]. Prior to his service as Chief of the Border Patrol, Morgan had served for 20 years in the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). After being replaced as Border Patrol Chief at the beginning of the Trump Administration, Morgan gained notoriety for defending certain Trump Administration border enforcement policies, such as the push for a border wall. If confirmed, Morgan will replace Michael Albence, who has been serving as acting Director of ICE since April 11.

President Trump has still not named a nominee to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security. Kevin McAleenan, the current Director of CBP, is serving as the acting Secretary of Homeland Security.
