BREAKING: Border Patrol get first female chief in history
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NYTimes.com:
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Border Patrol has its first female chief in its 94-year history.
Carla Provost had been acting chief since April 2017, so her appointment Thursday by Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan was no surprise. The position is not subject to Senate confirmation.
The article goes on to state the following:
Only about 5 percent of the Border Patrol’s nearly 20,000 agents are women. Provost says women who have climbed through the ranks send a signal and that, while she’s the first female chief, she won’t be the last.
I am both humble and proud to accept the position of Chief of the #BorderPatrol. I want to thank @SecNielsen and @CBP_McAleenan for their faith and confidence in me. I look forward to serving the agents who protect this nation with steadfast dedication and heart. #HonorFirst
