Hmm. Might not be the perfect person to carry out President Trump’s wishes. He is also, by the way, serving as U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who was accused of sabotaging the Trump administration’s deportation operation because of a personal opposition to the plan, has given for years solely to Democratic causes, according to federal records.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, wrote in an op-ed Monday that the secretary and his wife’s donations only to Democratic politicians and organizations over the past 12 years could explain why McAleenan allegedly leaked a nationwide Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid to the media last week, forcing the administration to cancel the extensive undertaking after months of planning.
“He has proven his political leanings in his actions, including his campaign contributions,” Judd wrote in a Fox News op-ed. “By definition, Kevin McAleenan should be considered anti-Trump.”
McAleenan had no giving history until the 2008 presidential election, Federal Election Commission data shows. He made 11 contributions from $100 to $600 totaling $3,000 to then-Sen. Barack Obama between November 2007 and November 2008. One $100 donation was rescinded.
