U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost is expected to leave her post by December, according to several high-ranking former Department of Homeland Security and union officials with first-hand knowledge of the plan.
Provost, the first woman to lead the 95-year-old federal law enforcement agency, will retire by the year’s end, wrapping up her 24-year career, the Washington Examiner has learned.
The article goes on to state the following:
The 48-year-old lifetime Border Patrol worker has served as permanent chief for less than a year. She was acting chief from April 2017 through August 2018 and officially took over late last summer after Robert Perez was confirmed by the Senate as deputy commissioner of Border Patrol’s parent agency, Customs and Border Protection.
This week, U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost addressed a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on the border:

What gets lost in public discourse is that although we do encounter migrants with asylum claims, the majority of the migrants we interview are telling the #BorderPatrol that they are coming here for economic reasons.
