U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton is stepping down, effective at the end of July.

"I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together during that time and look with awe on the incredible progress IEC has made as an agency," Mr. Morton said, in an internal announcement to employees made public in a Reuters report.

"ICE has truly come of age and become an innovative leading force in federal law enforcement," he said.

Mr. Morton, who headed the agency for four years — since May 2009 — is leaving to join the private sector, he said.
