Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement on the appointment of Randolph D. Alles, a retired Marine Corps general and Acting Deputy Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, to lead the United States Secret Service:

“Randy Alles is an excellent choice to lead the Secret Service. He has an outstanding record of public service and strong leadership, serving our country in top posts in the Marine Corps and at Customs and Border Protection. He is known by his colleagues, friends, and family to be a man of integrity and of his word. The Secret Service has faced a number of challenges in recent years and I am confident that Mr. Alles will bring the leadership and changes needed to improve the agency. I look forward to working with him in his new role as Director of the United States Secret Service to make necessary reforms and to ensure the agency has the tools needed to keep the President, White House grounds, and other protectees safe from harm.”
