SECRET SERVICE: Says It Will Run Out of Money

rotecting the first family is expensive – so much so that the Secret Service said it only has the budget to watch over Donald Trump and his family through the end of September. After that date, the agency will hit its federally mandated salary cap unless Congress takes action.

If Congress doesn't intervene, about 30% of the agents would work overtime with no pay, according to agency officials.

Director Randolph "Tex" Alles said in a statement, "The Secret Service estimates that roughly 1,100 employees will work overtime hours in excess of statuary pay caps during calendar year 2017. To remedy this ongoing and serious problem, the agency has worked closely with the Department of Homeland Security, the Administration, and the Congress over the past several months to find a legislative solution."
