Secret Service director to leave his position, White House says

The Secret Service does not determine who is invited or welcome at Mar-a-Lago; this is the responsibility of the host entity.

Nielsen and President Trump met at the White House on Sunday - after which the president announced that Nielsen would leave her post as head of DHS.

Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of Homeland Security who has become a face of President Donald Trump's hardline immigration push, is leaving the administration.

Administration sources tell Fox News that the withdrawal of Vitiello's nomination was the first step in Trump's plan to control the border crisis.

Nielsen, who oversaw Trump's bitterly contested immigration policies during her tumultuous 16-month tenure, resigned amid a surge in the number of migrants at the border with Mexico.

After the incident, Trump defended the service's actions, saying: "I could not be happier with Secret Service".

Randolph Alles is one of several Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials being ousted on Monday, says the BBC's United States affiliate, CBS News.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said James Murray, a career Secret Service agent, will take over the Secret Service in May.

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

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.

His ouster comes after a Chinese woman carrying a thumb drive infected with malware talked her way into Mar-a-Lago, the president's club in Palm Beach, Fla., while the president was nearby.

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.

Telling CNN it is "a wholesale decapitation of the Department of Homeland Security leadership", the officials says that the ax will fall on other heads.

Interim secretaries are also in place at the Departments of Defence, the Department of the Interior and the Office of Management and Budget, among other federal agencies.
