Acting U.S. Border Chief Resigns Amid Outrage Over Agency's Treatment of Migrant Children
(HOUSTON) — The acting head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection resigned Tuesday amid an uproar over the discovery of migrant children being held in filthy conditions at one of the agency’s stations in Texas.
(休斯顿) - 周二，美国海关和边境保护局代理局长辞职，原因是该机构在德克萨斯州的一个工作站发现移民儿童被关押在肮脏的条件下。
Commissioner John Sanders’ departure deepened the sense of crisis and added to the rapid turnover inside the agencies responsible for enforcing President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration priorities.
The Trump administration is dealing with unprecedented numbers of migrant families coming across the border, a surge that has left detention centers severely overcrowded and taxed the government’s ability to provide medical care and other attention.
The administration has faced a barrage of criticism in recent days over conditions inside the Border Patrol facility in Clint, Texas, first reported by The Associated Press: inadequate food, lack of medical care, and older children trying to care for toddlers.
