He now serves as the acting deputy commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection.

His positions of leadership within the Corps included command of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward) and of Al Asad Air Base in Iraq; commanding general of the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab and vice chief of Naval Research; and director for Strategic Planning and Policy at U.S. Pacific Command, among others.

A retired Marine Corps general, Alles is now acting deputy commissioner of customs and border protection. In March, a White House fence-jumper incident that cost two agents their jobs.

While the move is largely unprecedented, it's clear that the Secret Service may be in desperate need of drastic change.

Later in the same month, a laptop with highly sensitive information, including floor plans and evacuation protocol for Trump Tower, was stolen from a Secret Service agent's auto in NY, according to law enforcement officials in NY.

The appointment comes as the Secret Service has faced criticism over a breach at the White House complex.

A retired Marine Corps two-star general will be the next director of the United States Secret Service, the White House announced Tuesday. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly are the most prominent of that group. Clancy returned to his retirement in March, allowing President Donald Trump the opportunity to fill the post as he sees fit.

Currently, Secret Service Deputy Director William Callahan has lead the agency for the last month, since former director Joseph Clancy retired.

Alles inherits an agency that has been dealing with a series of security and personnel issues. To replace him, Trump named Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.
