Benjamin Wallace-Wells has a good piece in the New Yorker on the "deep state", particularly ICE and the Border Patrol. Apparently "deep state" is now a thing, discovered by Ann Althouse, Rush Limbaugh and Chris Wallace--see Althouse's post.
A number of comments mention the great British comedy "Yes Minister" , which I recommend to everyone. (It helps to explain some of the errors of the Trump administration, as the new minister is educated by the permanent under-secretary.) For those with a taste for more action, the Sandbaggers
combines secret agents with a good taste of bureaucracy. For a more modern taste, the Americans
also has a bit of bureaucracy thrown in.
