    First on CNN: Katharine Gorka expected to be named Customs and Border Protection press secretary


    Source: CNN

    Washington (CNN)Katharine Gorka, a political appointee at the Department of Homeland Security who has stirred controversy for her views on terrorism and her role in the department's efforts to combat violent extremism in the US, is expected to be the new press secretary at Customs and Border Protection.

    Acting CBP Commissioner John Sanders told CNN Tuesday that Gorka is expected to take the position and he advocated for her to join the agency.

    The move comes as President Donald Trump continues his rhetoric against undocumented immigrants and the increasing number of migrants crossing the southern border and claiming asylum.

    Customs and Border Protection is the agency responsible for policing the US borders and facilitating legal trade and travel. It is also the frontline agency dealing with the surge of migrants at the southern border. If Gorka steps into this new role, she will be taking on the pubic face of the agency at the center of the President's attention, which has been struggling with capacity and resource issues.

    The Department of Homeland Security has also seen a major turnover in senior staff in the wake of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's forced departure in April. Several CBP officials joined Kevin McAleenan at DHS headquarters when he was named acting Homeland Security secretary.

    CNN has reached out to Gorka for a response to her new post and past controversies.


    Gorka is married to Sebastian Gorka, the former deputy assistant to Trump, who was an outspoken and combative defender of the President's national security agenda, known for his dire warnings of Islamic terrorism while writing for Breitbart..........................................

    Ha, someone posted "the beatings will continue until morale improves". That should be Trump's re-election campaign slogan.

    Mick Mulvaney, draining the swamp. That's exactly how it will be viewed.

    That article was dated June of 2018 so I assume he's restocked the swamp with larger fire-breathing hellion critters by now.

    Holy crap. Is there one single person in the Trump administration that doesn’t have scary skeletons in their closet?

    I am going to keep saying this until one of the candidates pick it up and start using it all the time, hopefully in the debate as soon has he brings up "draining the swamp.": Donald Trump has drained the swamp and filled with sewage (then go on to list all of his cabinet members who had to resign, pull their name from consideration, etc.)
