Trump orders firing of Secret Service chief

U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph Alles speaks during a press conference at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. on Oct. 26 2018

"Secret Service has done a fantastic job from Day 1".

"The president has directed an orderly transition in leadership for this agency and I intend to abide by that direction", Alles said.

Trump has reportedly become "unhinged" as large numbers of migrants have been approaching the United States border in an effort to claim asylum in the country.

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.

Her remarks confirmed earlier reports by United States media, but Sanders did not elaborate on the circumstances of his departure.

Trump said the incident was a "fluke", and claimed that security at his Mar-a-Lago resort was sufficient. He had been the acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection.

Alles's departure comes amid a spate of turnover across DHS that began last week when President Trump withdrew his Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director's nomination to stay on permanently.

He said he would make the move if the government "proves it is incapable of commanding a majority in the House of Commons". If that fails, it will be up to Parliament to decide what happens next, she said.

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.

Trump, seeking re-election in 2020, has taken a hard line towards immigration since becoming president in January 2017, and the issue may be a central theme in next year's election.

Her departure had been long rumored particularly after criticism of the administration's 2018 family separation policy at the border with Mexico and as USA border officials estimated that 100,000 migrants were apprehended at the southern border in March, the highest level in a decade.

Management at Trump's Palm Beach property, where individuals pay a fee to obtain memberships that can provide proximity to the president, allowed the woman to bypass security, prosecutors said.

The news was confirmed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.

Nielsen served as the head of DHS for 16 months, following the appointment of former DHS Secretary John Kelly to be White House chief of staff. Kelly has since resigned from the administration.
