Donald Trump Removing Secret Service Director Randolph Alles

The departures indicate unstable circumstances at the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the Secret Service.

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.

But administration officials told Fox News on Sunday that Nielsen's background in cybersecurity made her a poor fit to handle border issues, while McAleenan best fits Trump's requirement of being the "toughest cop" on the frontier.

The Secret Service director reports to the director of Homeland Security.

American Airlines said the technical issue was related to AeroData, a company that makes aircraft location technology. Southwest Airlines was the most heavily affected by the outage as the airline had to delay 620 early flights.

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", Trump said during a White House event when asked by reporters about the Mar-a-Lago trespasser.

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.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick were also expected to be canned in the days or weeks ahead - and the White House is eyeballing others as well.

Speaking anonymously, three administration officials told the Associated Press Alles' departure stemmed from a personality conflict within the agency.

After a widely publicized manhunt, he was arrested on Tuesday in the city of Bellflower, in Los Angeles County. Holder has not entered a plea yet and it is unclear if he has an attorney, according to the Associated Press .

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.

Mr Alles was appointed by Mr Trump in April 2017.

CNN reported that President Donald Trump instructed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to fire Alles. This access does not afford an individual proximity to the President or other Secret Service protectees.
