A copy of a memo Alles sent to his staff was published by CNN. In it, Alles explained that he was not “fired”, as several headlines suggested, but that his departure had been planned out weeks in advance and that he respects the president’s decision to bring in new leadership for the agency.

No doubt you have seen media reports regarding my “firing”. I assure you that this is not the case, and in fact was told weeks ago by the Administration that transitions in leadership should be expected across the Department of Homeland Security. The President has directed an orderly transition in leadership for this agency and I intend to abide by that direction. It is my sincere regret that I was not able to address the workforce prior to this announcement.

It has been my great honor to serve as Director of the U.S. Secret Service. I want to personally thank you all for a job well done. Your pride, strength and resilience is what has, and will continue to, allow this agency to accomplish great things. Your dedication and sacrifice continue to make the U.S. Secret Service an elite law enforcement agency; one that will remain so well into the future.

Assistant Director of the Office of Protective Operations James Murray has been named the incoming Director of the Secret Service. Jim is a consummate professional, a true leader and I have great confidence in his capabilities. Please give him the outstanding support that you have shown me these past two years.

Update (2:30 pm ET): The administration has already found its replace for Alles. Sarah Sanders said the president has picked James Murray, a career member of the agency, to take over.

Following former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Sunday resignation due to her “abysmal failure” to curb the crisis at the southern border (indeed, the number of migrants and asylum seekers pouring into the US has reached unprecedented levels this year), President Trump appears to be embarking on a purge of all Nielsen’s allies and direct reports – starting with Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles.

According to CNN, Trump has asked Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to fire Alles. Alles is reportedly aware that he will soon be pushed out, but his departure hasn’t yet been made official. One of CNN’s sources described Alles’ ouster as part of a “near systematic purge” as Stephen Miller, who has been charged with running the administration’s immigration policy, consolidates power. One official described Miller’s purge as a “wholesale decapitation” of DHS.

“There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation’s second-largest national security agency,” one senior administration official says.

And Alles’s likely won’t be the last head to roll at DHS. Two other top officials are reportedly on their way out.

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.

A former marine, Alles was recommended for the post by former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who ran the department before his move to the West Wing, per the AP.

Notably, Alles firing may also be related to an embarrassing episode for the secret service after a Chinese woman illegally entered the President’s Mar-a-Lago club carrying four cell phones, two passports, electronic devices and a thumb-drive containing malware. Whatever the reason, the White House and DHS declined to comment to CNN on the matter.

The woman, who appeared in a Florida on Monday, also reportedly had a stash of electronics in her hotel room, including a signal detector, nine USB drives and five SIM cards for mobile phones – all tools of espionage.

  1. Trump needs to fire all the heads of each law enforcement agency doj the top 10 leaders of that ripoff organization crooked corrupt Liars treasonous, needs to fire all the leaders in the FBI CIA IRS!! Needs to imprison Obama Clinton’s Lynch holder and all the rest of it lying crooked corrupt deep state characters that tried to overtake the presidency treason is a crime which is the death penalty

    • Trump is a results-oriented leader and if they can’t get results, get out of the way. If they have been in the position a long time, also get out of the way because they probably have lost your edge, if they ever had one. Maybe the president needs to go “afield” and get those that may not be in leadership oppositions but who “have been there and done that” and know the score. It’s taken a while for many to show their true colors and it’s time to clean house. Way to go, Mr. President. Many patriotic Americans are behind you and support you.

    • hay al, you got that right! and that twat ford needs too be prosecuted for lying to the cuntgress! what he does need too stop doing is putin femerals in positions that they are not qualified 4! the commanding general @ the a.f.academy needs too be replaced for the stupid shit-storm he raised. there was similar {jussie fake I gots beat up by whitey?nigger-thing] out there. and the dikhed commander called the whole of the student body out, and disgraced them to the world. there was no such incident, it was another nigger on nigger claim of whitey discrimination.

  2. Is there ANYONE our President can trust?
    Too many things just don’t add up.
    There have been too many near misses on the highways with
    the president’s motorcade.
    This Chinese spy getting into Mar-a-Lago with spy equipment is
    another close call. How far up the chain does this deep state go?
    It seems everyone and everything have been corrupted for quite some time.
    Purge the entire system if need be, Mr. President!!!

    • ummmm, this is an example of how the chinks can infiltrate the government. the call out of the femerial of haweia phone/telecom/pla hackers, demonstrates the extent the chinks will go too! n den it is another demonstration of how bad/good the tariffs are effecting the chinks! noe that the chinks have been raping the USA long be4 the obolah, and he did nothing too stop it??

  3. President Trump is Fabulous! Many times I comment that we need to stop people from remaining in cushy govt jobs, stay forever, get their friends and family hired, and abuse the public trust without accountability. I LOVE that President Trump is weeding out the bad ones and holding them accountable.

  4. How can he know who he can trust? Even people he helped turned around to ally with the media to lie and smear him. You have our Country in your heart. Thank you.
    MAGA 2020!

  5. NEVER FORGET OUR INTEL COULD NOT STOP 911. OBAMA AND HIS INFECTORS HAD 8 YEARS TO DESTROY EVERY AGENCY IN THE GOVERNMENT. HE DID NOT START WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT. YOU ONLY HAVE TO SEE THE LEFT BI LOVERS AND DON’T BUY THE LIE THE FISA JUDGE KNEW NOTHING. THESE SURFACE FEEDERS SWAP SWIZZLE STICKS AT COCKTAIL PARTY’S. YOU WANT SECURITY? ASSUME EVERY AGENCY IS INFECTED THREE LEVELS DOWN. THE ACT ACCORDINGLY. IF THEY LEAK TO THE COMMUNIST PRESS THEY ALSO LEAK TO COMMUNIST COUNTRIES. HOW CAN YOU BUY THE IRANIAN PAY OFF OF 157 BILLION FOR PEACE? WHEN YOU KNOW THAT AMERICAN LEGS ARE BLOWN OFF EVERY DAY BY IRANIAN IED’S PACKED WITH IRANIAN COPPER LUGS FOR BETTER FLESH GASHING. OBAMA/HOLDER PUT GI’S IN PRISON FOR VIOLATING RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. hE CONSIGNED THEIR FAMILIES TO A LIFE OF POVERTY AND SHAME WITH LOST BENEFITS. DADDY IS ON SUICIDE WATCH. HOW MUCH BETRAYAL COULD YOU TAKE. NO PARDON FOR THE FT. LEAVENWORTH TEN. THE DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST GOAL IS TO DESTROY THE MILITARY. WHO WILL JOIN TO GO TO JAIL?

  6. I agree they are all traitors and he needs to grab them all starting with Pelosi, Schummer every appointed Obama and Clinton personnel, the three top officials in the FBI, CIA and the SS. there are about 10 to 15 Democrats who feel they are above the law that needs to be thrown in jail or executed for treason and attempted overthrow of your government. I will fight for my Grandchildren and children to not be subject to the Cortez and sanders of this world. Funny, one was a bartender that 16,000 voted for and she won so now she thinks she knows what is best for the 330,000,000 Americans, she is one of the traitors, and then Sanders, who lived off welfare and free government concessions never held a job, the same kind of idiots who voted Cortez in voted him in as mayor, he has never worked an honest day in his life. They are all traitors and need to face the needle.

  7. We must break what Obama organized to destroy the legality of American laws, a whole conspiracy of the subversive left … Trump will continue to organize the intelligence apparatus to protect the United States of America …

  8. All government job/positions should be terminated after ten years. If this were the case there would be no ‘shadow government’. At the ten year cut off the position, holder would then be free to obtain a private sector position with no connection with the government.

  9. I’m all for getting rid of anyone and everyone that doesn’t agree with our POTUS’ agenda. I trust Trump, I prayed for him, I’ll support him in 2020, and I’ll do whatever I can to help him get our homeland back in the hands of US Citizens.
