Biden's New Senior Advisor For Migration

President Biden's Senior Adviser for Migration, Amy Pope, left her Temporary Position, on Friday. In March, she was Nominated to be the International Organization for Migration, Deputy Director General for Management and Reform. Pope previously served in the Obama Administration and worked with the British Think Tank, Chatham House.

Pope will be Replaced by Tyler Moran, the Current Special Assistant to the President for Immigration, for the Domestic Policy Council.

In her New Role, Moran will "focus on implementing the President's commitment to a well-managed border and a fair and orderly immigration system."

Moran joined the White House after Serving as Executive Director of the Emerson Collective-funded Immigration Hub. She previously served as Senior Policy Adviser to former Senat Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) in the Domestic Policy Council, in the Obama-Biden White House.

"Amy had always intended to join the Biden Administration for a short time with an expected departure in the mid-summer.

Tyler has been a Key part of the Team, dating back to the Biden-Harris Transition, and has been preparing for this transition for a little while now," a White House Spokesperson said in a Statement.

Since early on in the Biden Administration, the White House has had to address a number of Immigration Challenges, including Overcrowding at Immigration Facilities and an Influx of Migrants attempting to Cross into the U.s.

Earlier Friday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) announced that US-Mexico Border Arrests, in June, were the Highest they'd been in at least a Decade.

CBP Acting Commissioner, Troy Miller, also noted Friday, that Agents are "seeing a high number of distress calls to CBP from migrants abandoned in treacherous terrain by smugglers."

The Biden Administration faces the Possibility of another Immigration Headache, as it weighs whether to more widely Reopen U..S Borders in the near future, just days from the current Travel Restrictions Expiring.

Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris, to Lead on Issues in the Northern Triangle, but the Administration has sought to Distance her from Issues related to the Southern Border.

The Administration has also taken, a number of Actions, to Confront Immigration Issues.

That's included: Securing Agreements for Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala:

- To Tighten their Borders and stem the Flow of Migration.

- Working to Remedy Overcrowding Issues at Immigration Facilities.

- Expanding its effort to Identify Vulnerable Migrant Families, in Mexico, for entry into the U.S.
