The Trump administration is about to lose another key member at one of the most difficult times in Trump’s presidency.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders has announced his resignation, effective July 5.
The situation at the border is deteriorating and the man in charge is about to abandon ship. Conditions at border facilities have taken over the news cycle after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) likened the facilities to Nazi concentration camps.
This entire situation goes away if Dems give Trump the humanitarian aid package he requested, but they refuse to give in.
Instead of passing clean legislation, the Dems loaded it up with poison pills to block border wall funding as well as enforcing certain immigration laws.
Meanwhile, children in border detention facilities are struggling without many basic necessities. The media, meanwhile, is eating it all up and helping the Dems blame Trump.
Time to Go
When more pictures surfaced showing horrific conditions where children were being held, the pressure became too much for Sanders.
As rumors of his dismissal started to surface, he beat them all to the punch and sent a resignation letter to President Trump.
To be clear, Trump did not ask Sanders to resign. Sanders is leaving because he is being prevented from doing his job and he does not want to the scapegoat for the Democrat party.
It would not matter who was in charge right now, there simply is not enough money to address the challenges being presented. There are about 12,000 people crowded into an area meant to hold 4,000… and this is just one facility.
There are not enough staff, doctors, agents, or supplies because of the overwhelming numbers at our border right now.
The only way to fix the problem is if Dems work with President Trump and approves legislation without forcing their own agenda.
