As of this morning, another border official bites the dust.
This morning, ACTING head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection John Sanders resigned due to public outrage over the terrible conditions that migrant children were living in. His deputy, Robert Perez, is also an ACTING (not confirmed) deputy.
Sander's predecessor, Kenin McAleenan, left in April to become ACTING head of Homeland Security.
Other key DHS agencies also have interim or acting directors, including U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
CBP is the agency that apprehends and first detains migrant parents and children crossing the Mexican border.
ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement also has an ACTING director, who is Mark Morgan. ICE had planned to arrest hundreds of people this week, but Trump put the operation on hold for a few weeks. Former ICE acting director Thomas Homan, a Trump administration ally, then went on television to accuse McAleenan of leaking information about the operation because he opposed it.
By now, it's fairly apparent that very few people in Trump's administration actually have a PERMANENT job.
It wasn't too many weeks ago that Trump appointed neo Nazi Stephen Miller as "immigration czar", and now he has replaced by someone else.
