Acting Head of U.S. Immigration Agency Expected to Step Down

According to Reuters, the acting commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, John Sanders, is resigning and will leave his post on July 5.

Sanders’s departure coincides with an outcry over the treatment of detained migrant children.

Attorneys said 250 children had been held for weeks in dirty conditions at an overcrowded Texas border patrol station without adequate food and water.

The children have since been relocated to children’s shelters.
