How to use deputy in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    Director Comey was very unpopular with most people, i actually thought when I made that decision -- and I also got a very, very strong recommendation, as you know, from the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein.

  2. Scott Kracl:

    This operation was dedicated to Deputy Scott Kracl Marshal Paul Keyes and Officer Kerrie Orozco for their tireless efforts on apprehending violent fugitives and serving their community, marshals Service is fortunate to have partners from OPD, Lincoln Police Department, Douglas and Sarpy county to achieve results that exceeded expectations. I'm confident their efforts will reduce violent crime and have rightfully lived up to the memory of Kerrie and Paul Keyes.

  3. House Republican:

    It certainly looked like a ‘Trump effect.’ Within weeks of Donald Trump’s arrival at the White House in January 2017, the number of people caught crossing America’s southern border illegally fell to a 17-year low of 11,127. John Kelly, then secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), attributed the drop to Mr. Trump’s executive orders on immigration.Elaine Duke, the department’s deputy secretary, gave credit to better enforcement of immigration laws. Mr. Trump hailed it as ‘a historic and unprecedented achievement.’ If such an effect did exist, it appears to have been short-lived. On April 5th, the DHS announced that Border Patrol agents apprehended 37,393 people in March, an increase of more than 200% on the previous year. The number of unaccompanied children caught entering illegally jumped by 300%, and the number of families detained while attempting the journey surged by nearly 700%.’.

  4. Liberty Counsel:

    The deputy went on to tell the parents that the school was worried that someone might be offended by the Bible verses.

  5. Kellyanne Conway:

    President Trump wants an FBI director who is impartial, who's not politicized and who has the confidence and trust of people in the bureau, of Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill, of the attorney general, of the deputy attorney general who oversees the FBI director and of the President of the United States, and (Comey) had lost that.
