The Trump Administration has fired two secret service agents due to the March 10 wall breach at the White House.
Two agents have been fired after Johnathan Tran, 26, jumped the White House walls and walked around the area for 15 minutes before being arrested.
It seems both of these agents were on duty the evening that Tran jumped the wall. One of the agents was assigned near the Treasury building while the other was placed at East Executive Avenue.
Tran had carried two cans of mace and a letter to President Donald Trump at the time of his arrest.

A Secret Service spokeswoman declined to comment on the firings in a statement to The Hill but said “all Secret Service personnel are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.”
“The Secret Service review of the March 10 incident is ongoing,” Secret Service communications director Cathy Milhoan said. “The Secret Service continues to take appropriate actions based upon findings of the mission assurance review. We do not comment on personnel actions.”
Trump praised Secret Service members the following day, telling reporters ahead of a meeting with Cabinet officials that the agents did a “fantastic job.” He also called the intruder “a troubled person.”
A Secret Service officer identified as a member of the White House’s Uniformed Division arrested Tran, saying he admitted to scaling the fence.
Last month, reports said at least six Secret Service members would be disciplined over the security breach. This is the first report of any firings.
