Border Patrol agents have come under increasing attack this year, even though illegal immigration is down.

Reported assaults on agents rose to more than 550 from January to June 1 of this year, from 300 during the same period last year, Carla Provost, the acting chief of the Border Patrol, told Congress on Wednesday, the Washington Times reports. 

Provost declined to speculate on why assaults are surging, but the timing coincides with fierce immigration debates in the U.S.

The attacks underscore the dangers facing Border Patrol agents, she said.

Border Patrol’s first woman to serve as acting chief was named Tuesday to lead the agency as the Trump administration tries to build a wall on the border of Mexico and hire an additional 5,000 agents.

Carla Provost, who was the deputy chief since October, replaces Ronald Vitiello, who became acting deputy commission of Customs and Border Protection, the Associated Press reports. 

Provost is the fourth person to lead the agency since late 2015. She is the first woman to lead the agency in its 93-year history.

Customs and Border Protection said it’s not yet clear how long Provost and Vitiello will serve in the acting roles.

Border Patrol has its first female deputy chief.

Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan has selected Deputy Assistant Carla Provost to serve as deputy chief, which makes her responsible for more than 23,000 employees, El Paso Proud reports. 

Provost, who will lead daily operations, is now the highest-ranking woman in the 92-year history of Border Patrol.

“I am deeply honored,” said Provost. “I realize it’s historic but I wasn’t aiming to do this. I never set out to be in this position, I’ve just focused on doing the best job in the position I’m in, and not looking at the next one. Doing my best has always led to that next position.”

Women only account for about 5% of the Border Patrol agent force.
