Trump has nominated a new Border Patrol Chief, and it’s a first for a specific reason. The Daily Caller reports:
The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) named Carla Provost as its first female chief in its 94-year history in an announcement Thursday morning.
Provost, who has been with CBP for 23 years, has been serving as acting chief since April 2017. Provost joined the Border Patrol in 1995, starting off as an agent in Douglas, Arizona. Since then, she has worked in top roles in El Paso, Texas, and El Centro, California, prior to moving to CBP headquarters in Washington, D.C., in 2015, Fox News reported.
“There is no one more suited to lead the Border Patrol,” CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a statement. “It is my distinct honor to appoint Chief Provost to this position. I have absolute confidence in her experience, leadership, judgment and dedication to lead the Border Patrol, as well as her unwavering commitment to our mission, and our agency.”
Provost called the Border Patrol her “family” in a statement after the announcement and detailed her commitment to the agency and to keeping the country safe. (RELATED: Border Agents Note Alarming Rise In Migrants Avoiding Custody By Bringing Children And Pretending To Be Their Parents)
