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

Trump fires Secret Service chief – reports

US Secret Service director Randolph "Tex" Alles is the latest administration official to get the boot as the president prepares to assemble a team that takes an even harder line on immigration.

CNN is reporting that Trump has ordered White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to fire United States Secret Service director Randolph "Tex" Alles, just one day after the president dismissed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Trump has selected Secret Service Agent James Murray to replace Alles in May.

"There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency", the official said.

More top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials are leaving the Trump administration, two senior administration officials said Monday, increasing the leadership vacuum at DHS as Washington grapples with the news of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's resignation.

Biden says ‘very close’ to announcing if he runs for president
I've always thought of it as about connecting people - as I've said, shaking hands, hands on the shoulder, a hug, encouragement. On Wednesday, Biden released a video promising to be more "respectful" of others personal space.

President Donald Trump has sacked the head of the Secret Service, which is responsible for guarding him, according to reports. Trump also announced that Kevin McAleenan, the US Customs and Border Protection commissioner, would become acting DHS secretary.

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.

Alles' departure comes on the heels of Nielsen's resignation and, according to a source, has nothing to do with the recent Mar-a-Lago incident, in which a woman was arrested at the president's Florida property after allegedly carrying two Chinese passports and malware.

Alles is expected to remain on the job for the time being until a new director can be appointed and confirmed, the law enforcement official told ABC News. This access does not afford an individual proximity to the President or other Secret Service protectees.

Trump recently empowered adviser and immigration hardliner Stephen Miller to take charge of Team Trump's border policies "and he's executing his plan" by dismantling Homeland Security's leadership, the official said.
