President Donald Trump's Homeland Security shake-up has left almost half its senior leadership in the hands of temporary administrators.

The resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen as the department's secretary and the appointment of Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan as acting secretary, coupled with the departure of Secret Service Director Randolph Alles, means that 12 of the 30 leadership positions on the department's organization chart will have been either replaced or filled on an interim basis.
