Biden’s Border Security Director Tapped From UN ‘Open Borders’ Agency


President Biden’s pick for his National Security Council’s Senior Director for Transborder Security is Katie Tobin – an alum of the globalist, pro-open borders United Nations.

Tobin formerly served as the External Relations Officer for the United Nations Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) after working as the agency’s Head of Office in Belize from 2015 to 2016. The United Nations – decried by President Trump for its “open borders activism” – routinely peddle policies that would increase the number of migrants and refugees the U.S. accepts.

Tobin, while speaking to a local news outlet in Belize, appear to affirm the organization’s immigration stance:

It is something that UNHCR proposed to the government of Belize [Costa Rica, not Belize, finally agreed to it]. It’s a new initiative, part of UNHCR regional strategy, something we’re really excited about, it’s an innovative mechanism that will hopefully save lives for some of the most vulnerable people in the Northern Triangle, people that are facing severe persecutions, their lives are at risk but they’re not able to access protection in their country, for instance in El Salvador, Honduras … . And so we’re looking to be able to transfer them out of their country for temporary stay in Belize while they will be processed for resettlement in a third country, countries like the United States and potentially Canada. So, UNHCR is really excited about this program because like I said we think it’ll save lives.

Prior to joining the United Nations, Tobin also worked as an Immigration Associate for a Chicago-based law firm, providing “legal representation to individuals and families in a variety of immigration matters, including affirmative and defensive asylum, cancellation of removal and other forms of removal defense, U visa and VAWA petitions.”

“While in that position, she “served in various roles in the Chicago Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), including co-chair of the Advocacy Committee; panel speaker on U.S. refugee policy at the AILA Annual Conference; [and] committee member for the AILA Chicago Chapter Asylum Committee and Advocacy Committee,” a summary notes.
