John Sanders, U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s acting commissioner, is expected to resign as outrage grows over conditions that immigrants, especially minors, are living in at the border.

According to the New York Times, his probable resignation comes on the heels of the disclosure that more than 100 children were sent back to a station in Clint, Texas, a severely lacking housing facility where they didn’t have access to showers, clean clothes and suitable meals.

Most of the children were originally removed from the facility after word spread of the dire conditions.

Sanders held his post since President Donald Trump tapped former Customs and Border Protection commissioner Kevin McAleenan to replace former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
