I’m Carl Azuz. Welcome to CNN 10. A shakeup in the U.S. government leads off today’s show. Yesterday the White House announced that Randolph "Tex" Alles, the Director of the U.S. Secret Service would be leaving his position. Director Alles says he was told weeks ago that changes were coming.

我是卡尔`阿祖兹。欢迎收看CNN 学生新闻。今天的节目首先来关注美国政府的改组。昨天,白宫宣布,美国特勤局局长阿勒斯将离职。特勤局局长阿勒斯说,几周前,他就被告知变革即将来临。

The White House thanked him for his decades of service and said he did a great job. But the Secret Service came under scrutiny recently after an arrest was made at a resort in Florida owned by U.S. President Donald Trump. He’s met several international leaders at his Mara Largo Club and the accused trespasser is a Chinese woman who’d gotten past security carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive with computer threatening malware.

白宫感谢他几十年的服务,并说他做得很好。但是,在美国总统川普佛罗里达州的一个度假胜地发生逮捕事件后,美国特勤局最近受到密切关注。阿勒斯在马拉拉戈俱乐部会见了几位国际领导人,被告的闯入者是一名中国女子,她携带中国护照和一个装有电脑恶意软件的闪存盘通过了安检。

The Secret Service says it does not decide who gets into the resort but the incident raised security questions even though the White House says Alles departure isn’t related to it. Meantime, Alles boss, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is leaving her job. President Trump made that announcement on Sunday.

特勤局表示,他们并不决定谁进入该度假村,但这起事件引发了安全问题,尽管白宫表示,阿勒斯的离职与此事无关。与此同时,阿勒斯的老板,国土安全部部长Kirstjen Nielsen即将离职。特朗普总统周日宣布了这一消息。

In her resignation letter, Secretary Nielsen praised the departments workers for their service and sacrifices and said she hoped the next secretary would have Congressional support in fixing the laws that have quote "impeded our ability to fully secure America’s borders." The southern border with Mexico has been a major focus of the Trump Administration.

在她的辞职信中,国防部长尼尔森赞扬了国土安全部的工作人员的服务和牺牲,并表示,希望下一任国防部长在修改“妨碍我们充分保障美国边境安全”的法律方面得到国会的支持。与墨西哥接壤的南部边境一直是特朗普政府的重点。

Last month officials estimated they’d stopped 100,000 people there from entering the U.S. illegally. The government says that’s the highest monthly number of migrants in more than a decade. Observers say the president was getting more and more frustrated about it.

上个月官方估计已经阻止了10万人非法进入美国。政府说,这是10多年来移民人数最多的一个月。观察人士表示,总统对此越来越让人失望。

He’d even threatened to close the border. Congressional Democrats say Secretary Nielsen’s resignation shows how the Trump Administration’s border security and immigration policies have failed. Congressional Republicans say Nielsen served honorably and that they’re confident the Homeland Security Department is in good hands. Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Commissioner will serve as temporary DHS Secretary until Nielsen’s replacement is confirmed by the Senate.

他特朗普甚至威胁要关闭边境。国会民主党人表示,部长尼尔森的辞职表明特朗普政府的边境安全和移民政策已经失败。国会共和党人说,尼尔森的工作是光荣的,他们相信国土安全部会得到很好的管理。现任美国海关和边境事务专员凯文·麦卡利斯南将暂时担任国土安全部部长,直到参议院确认尼尔森的接替人选。
