U.S. Secret Service director Randolph Alles leaving position

Randolph “Tex” Alles

Donald Trump announced on Monday that he will remove secret service director Randolph "Tex" Alles from his position, as one anonymous official described "a near-systematic purge" at the Department of Homeland Security.

The departure of Alles follows the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and Trump's decision to withdraw Ronald Vitiello, his nominee to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in favor of someone "tougher".

Alles has been asked to leave on Monday, a number of USA mainstream media outlets reported citing anonymous administration officials.

"I could not be happier with Secret Service".

Director of the United States Secret Service Randolph Alles meets with guests before speaking at the Atlanta Press Club in Atlanta, Feb. 1, 2018. "Mr. Alles will be leaving shortly and President Trump has selected James M. Murray, a career member of the USSS, to take over as director beginning in May", Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Monday.

Trump's battle with 'Obamacare' moves to the courts
He says Republicans are working on a replacement plan, but Congressman Peter Welch says that simply isn't true. Key aspects of President Trump's health care agenda are struggling to overcome legal challenges in the courts.

Last week, a Chinese national was caught at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, in possession of a flash drive containing malware. "Very happy with them".

A law enforcement official told Fox News that, inside the agency, the news of Alles' departure came as a surprise.

The President in recent weeks empowered Stephen Miller to lead the administration's border policies "and he's executing his plan" with what amounts to a wholesale decapitation or the Department of Homeland Security leadership, the official says.

Prior to running the Secret Service, Alles had served as the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection; he also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, commanding Marine Aircraft Group 11 Third Marine Aircraft Wing and retired as a major general in the United States Marine Corps after serving in the Marines for 35 years.

L. Francis Cissna, director of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, and department General Counsel John Mitnick also are expected to be out of their jobs soon, CNN reported.
