The White House is reeling from the bombshell resignation of Suzanne Barr, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Chief of Staff accused of sexually harassment by employees.
Arizona Congressman David Schweikert appeared on FOX News' "America's Newsroom" and talked about the allegations and what it could mean to the agency and the White House.
"I see what the accusations toward Miss Barr, eventually a court and litigation out there will settle and determine how true it is. But, I see it as a dysfunctional agency lacking discipline. When you have top management being accused of lewd acts, when you have obviously the policy-makers at ICE hand-and-glove with the White House re-writing policies for amazing timing for the election, and now we're starting to hear many of the ICE officers, of the Border Patrol officers saying, we don't know how to do our job. You're creating these rules where we pull someone over, they tell us, well I'm under 30, or I'm a student, or I did this. And they are supposed to let them go? It's becoming just layering and layering, whether it be lewd acts over here, our policies that make immigration enforcement almost impossible to do," said Schweikert.
Barr was said to have taken a leave from her office in August over the allegations. She has denied the accusations made against her.
