Secret Service director out less than 24 hours after DHS secretary resigns

Trump fires Secret Service chief – reports

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said later Monday that Trump has picked James M. Murray, a career USSS official, to replace Alles.

The officials also intimated that the decision to fire Alles, who reported directly to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, was part of the ongoing change of personnel at that department, and was not related to the alleged intrusion that occurred last weekend at Trump's resort Mar-a-Lago.

Mr Alles reported directly to Ms Nielsen, who announced her resignation on Sunday, after facing increasing pressure to do so from Mr Trump.

His appointment was set to fulfill the recommendations of a group of former senior government officials that reviewed the Secret Service in 2014 and found that it was an "insular agency" in need of an outsider to lead it. According to The Washington Post, the criminal complaint filed by Secret Service agent Samuel Ivanovich stated, "Zhang was asked if the true member. was her father, but she did not give a definitive answer".

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles is leaving his job, according to the White House.

As you might expect, fans had their suspicions about what exactly it was about the song that was a problem... Cyrus also gave a shout out to Lil Nas X on social media.

The first sign of the overhaul came late on Thursday, when Trump abruptly pulled his nomination of Ron Vitiello as director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of DHS. "Very happy with them". Kevin McAleenan, the current US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) commissioner, was named as her acting replacement.

However, US media report that under US law, the department's undersecretary, Claire Grady, should have been the one to take over for Ms Nielsen as the senior Senate-confirmed official.

One official described the firings as "a near-systematic purge" at the Department of Homeland Security. Alles reported to Nielsen.

Per the report, DHS General Counsel John Mitnick and U.S. Citizienship and Immigration Services Director Francis Cissna "are expected to be gone soon".

Interim secretaries are also in place at the Departments of Defence, the Department of the Interior and the Office of Management and Budget, among other federal agencies.
