Acting Secretary McAleenan Statement on CBP Acting Commissioner Sanders's Resignation
On June 26, Acting Secretary Kevin K. McAleenan released the follwoing statement on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) leadership:

"This week, Mr. John P. Sanders offered his resignation as Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, effective Friday, July 5. I would like to thank Mr. Sanders for his service and for assuming the highest role at CBP at one of the most tenuous times in the Department's history. His dedication to our nation's security has helped raise the agency's standards of care as well as support for the law enforcement personnel who serve CBP.

"I had the distinct honor to serve with him at CBP where he held the position of Chief Operating Officer. In that role, he worked to identify and address the operational requirements of the agency, and to provide strategic direction and oversight of enterprise services and operational support components. He also led CBP's efforts to form key partnerships with technological innovators and industry stakeholders.

"Prior to joining CBP, Mr. Sanders served as the Transportation Security Administration's Chief Technology Officer, overseeing the development and implementation of risk-based analysis to enhance transportation security. Mr. Sanders's private sector experience includes co-founding Reveal Imaging Technologies and with contraband detection, geospatial intelligence and data analytics solutions.

"On behalf of the entire Department, I want to thank Mr. Sanders for his outstanding service to CBP and to our nation, and I wish him the very best for the future."

At the same time, he claimed the conditions were "much better than they were under President Obama."

Shortly after Trump made his comments, Smith told Fox News viewers that because Trump said "we're treating the children very well," he was going to provide actual reporting on "how those children are being treated."
