National Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost, one of President Trump’s longest-serving senior aides, will step down from her post this month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said.
Provost planned to retire in December from the 21,000-person organization, but the 24-year Border Patrol employee was forced to put her plans on hold due to infighting at CBP over whether a white or nonwhite person should replace her and what message the race of the new chief would send.
The article goes on to state the following:
Provost, 50, is the first woman to lead the 95-year-old federal law enforcement agency and has been in the role two and a half years. She was acting chief from mid-2017 through August 2018, when she was made permanent chief.
The report states that Rodney Scott, a 27-year veteran with the Border Patrol, will take over the role upon Provost’s departure.
