Secret Service Chief Out, Other DHS Officials May Be Next

Secret Service Chief Out, Other DHS Officials May Be Next

Secret Service Director Randolph Alles is leaving his position at the direction of President Donald Trump, according to two administration officials familiar with the decision.

On the tail of the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and the withdrawal of the nomination of would-be ICE director Ronald Vitiello, Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles is leaving his position, as well, CNN first reported Monday.

She said that Trump has picked career Secret Service member James M. Murray to take over the agency in May. His displeasure with several of his own national security officials reportedly stems from the fact that they have refused to violate the law to carry out his orders.

Nielsen, who oversaw Trump's bitterly contested immigration policies during her tumultuous 16-month tenure, resigned Sunday amid a surge in the number of migrants at the border with Mexico.

Jewish voters identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party over the Republican Party by a roughly 2-1 ratio. They followed that by contributing $100 million to the Republican Party for the 2018 midterm elections.

"United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed".

His ouster comes after a Chinese woman carrying a thumb drive infected with malware talked her way into Mar-a-Lago, the president's club in Palm Beach, Fla., while the president was nearby.

After the incident, Trump defended the service's actions, saying: "I could not be happier with Secret Service". Alles reported to Nielsen.

CNN also reported that there could be additional high-level removals at DHS in what one unnamed source described as a "purge".
