Senior Border Advisor Katie Tobin Leaves Biden Admin

 January 29, 2024

According to a spokesperson for the National Security Council, the senior migration adviser in the National Security Council for President Joe Biden will leave the White House in the coming weeks. 

These three years have been spent playing a significant role in the administration's immigration strategy, as The Daily Caller reported.

In light of the unprecedented number of people crossing the border between the United States and Mexico, Katie Tobin, who had been serving as the senior director for transborder security, is resigning from her position at a time when border policy is at the forefront of the focus.

In the midst of high-stakes negotiations between the White House and senators on modification of asylum rules, her departure, which had been planned for several months, has taken place.

Details of Tobin's Departure

“We’re all going to miss her. She’s a great professional and has been a true public servant in that regard,” White House spokesperson John Kirby stated, The Hill reported. Tobin will be taking time with her family, Kirby continued, according to the outlet.

According to NBC News, Tobin was a significant contributor to the termination of Title 42, which is also referred to as the "Remain in Mexico" policy.

This policy was implemented by the Trump administration. Following that, an unprecedented number of undocumented migrants have made their way across the southern border and entered the United States without proper documentation.

According to NBC News, Tobin and other officials traveled to Mexico last month to meet with their counterparts to discuss the issue that had occurred at the southern border.

According to reports, the departing senior advisor was also in charge of leading the efforts of the Biden administration toward the Los Angeles Declaration on Migrant Protection, which was signed by more than twenty countries.

According to a press statement issued by the White House, the proclamation was initiated with the intention of promoting better living conditions, which would purportedly reduce irregular migration.

As the press release made clear, Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua were not among the countries that signed the proclamation.

Jake Sullivan, an advisor to the National Security Council, issued a statement to NBC News in which he said, “Katie is departing after three years of tenacious and dedicated efforts on the migration file.

“We will miss Katie’s positivity and thoughtful contributions on an incredibly complex portfolio, but wish her well.”

In 2023 alone, the Biden administration has released more than 3.3 illegal immigrants into the country via parole or by the overstaying of their visas.
