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.
