Alles now serves as the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a position he inherited after Trump's inauguration. He is now working as the acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, and has been with the agency since shortly after leaving the military.

Alles, who was in the Marine Corps for 35 years, has been the acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection and previously oversaw the agency's air and marine division.

One of the most significant breaches under President Donald Trump occurred on March 10, when the Secret Service said a man breached the perimeter of the White House grounds after jumping several fences and went undetected for more than 16 minutes before being caught just steps from a main door to the executive mansion.

There's an unconventional new GOP president in the White House, and Republicans have a lock on Congress. Under former President Barack Obama, the Secret Service dealt with an armed shooter in the White House in November 2011, the removal of eight officers for soliciting prostitutes in Colombia, among other scandals.Despite this, this decision to select a director from outside the ranks Secret Service is not popular among current agents. "I look forward to working with General Alles to help him succeed in his new role".

The two sides have continued to negotiate and it sounds like the situation is building steam, according to a league source . So New England gets him and sends Buffalo its fifth-round selection, the 163rd pick, in this week's draft as compensation.

After retiring from the Marine Corps as a two-star general, Alles joined CBP in 2012.

He will take over for Secret Service Deputy Director William Callahan, who has run the agency since former Director Joseph Clancy retired on March 4. Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee, said he hopes Alles can "continue to bring needed to reform to the Secret Service that began in the previous administration".

The position is filled by presidential appointment and does not require Senate confirmation.
