Facing demotion by Biden admin, long-serving CBP official opts to retire: Report

The Biden administration is shaking things up at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) by pushing out the agency’s longest-serving official. 

That’s according to a new and exclusive report from the Washington Examiner, which cited two unnamed sources said to have firsthand knowledge of the move.

The sources reportedly alleged that Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez is planning to end nearly 30 years of service at the CBP with his retirement later this month. Perez’s decision to step down comes after one of Biden’s political appointees tried to demote him “by transferring him to an office in Tucson, Arizona,” the Examiner said.

“More inclusive language”

The report went on to note that Perez is expected to be replaced by Troy Miller, who is reported to have been effectively performing “the duties of the commissioner since Biden took office in late January.” But it hasn’t been without controversy.

According to the Examiner, Miller sent out a memo last month instructing personnel to stop using the term “illegal alien” to describe undocumented migrants in favor of “more inclusive language.”

“As the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, we set a tone and example for our country and partners across the world,” Miller wrote.

“We enforce our nation’s laws while also maintaining the dignity of every individual with whom we interact,” he added. “The words we use matter and will serve to further confer that dignity to those in our custody.”

Miller’s memo also discouraged officials from using the term “assimilation,” suggesting that they say “integration” instead.

Letting Americans down

President Joe Biden, for his part, has been contending with a massive influx of migrants at the U.S.–Mexico border since he first took office in January. And polling data in the months since suggests many Americans aren’t happy with how he’s handling it all.

Fox News reported last month that a survey conducted by the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found less than a quarter of Americans approve of Biden’s performance on border issues.

While 24% of respondents said that they favor the president’s approach, 40% said they disapproved, according to Fox. Thirty-five percent were neutral on the issue.

As one might expect, the results were divided sharply along partisan lines, with just 8% of Republicans expressing approval for Biden’s response to the border crisis, compared to 44% of Democrats. Perhaps more telling: just 11% of independent voters polled said they approved of the job Biden has been doing, while more than 40% voiced disapproval.

  6. How much does it cost for the above companies to advertise on this news venue? Of the four ads above there are three different sites referred to. This in my mind is advertising.
    It is revolting that I have to put us with it to get the opportunity to give direct input on matters of importance.
    This will be my “last” response to this news site if the above ads remain to be allowed.

    1. Thank you Henry D. If these “news” sites weren’t getting a kickback for allowing these nonsense ads, they wouldn’t be at the top of the list. And now there are getting to be more of them.

    1. I seriously doubt they are using any real information from which to make identification.
