Tucson Sector Border Patrol chief being reassigned

The chief of the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector is being reassigned just nine months after he took the post.

Victor Manjarrez Jr. became the Tucson Sector chief in February. His stint is the shortest of any Tucson Sector chief that has held the position since 1955.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol officials declined comment on the reassignment.

But the president of the agents’ union in Arizona says the 21-year Border Patrol veteran is being reassigned to the agency’s El Paso Sector due to family issues.

The Arizona Daily Star says that prior to coming to Tucson, Manjarrez was the El Paso Sector chief and his family is still living in that Texas city.
