omeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas fired most of the members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council on Friday, according to a letter obtained by ABC News.

The Homeland Security Advisory Council is made up of 30 members -- both Democrats and Republicans. Some of those who were fired included allies of former President Donald Trump, such as former acting DHS Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli and former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan.

"I am considering how the HSAC can bring the greatest value to the Department and how the expertise, judgment, and counsel of its Members can be harnessed most effectively to advance the Department's mission. I expect to work closely with the HSAC and to rely on its Members to help guide the Department through a period of change," Mayorkas wrote.

The HSAC produces reports and advises the secretary on a range of issues from domestic violent extremism to biometrics.

"In the service of an orderly transition to a new model for the HSAC, I have ended the term of current HSAC members effective March 26, 2021," he wrote. "I will reconstitute the HSAC in the next few weeks, once the new model has been developed. Chairman William Bratton and Vice Chair Karen Tandy will remain in their HSAC leadership positions. William Webster will remain the HSAC's Chair Emeritus. I was privileged to work with Judge Webster throughout my prior service in the Department."

Bratton, Tandy and Webster are the only three members still listed on the HSAC website. Bratton, the former NYPD commissioner, serves as commissioner.

Ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee John Katko, R-N.Y., slammed the action.

"While these members serve at the pleasure of the Secretary, today's action sends the message that this Administration has no intention of upholding a bipartisan, unifying approach to securing our homeland," Katko said. "The HSAC is not intended to be an echo chamber for what the current DHS Secretary wants to hear. Its mission is to provide a knowledgeable, diverse set of perspectives to combat the evolving threats of today and tomorrow."

Collins, who was reelected in November and is the only current Republican federal office holder in New England, has said previously that she upheld her constitutional duty as a senator to render “impartial justice.” She has also said that the party should be more focused on winning elections instead than in looking at the past.

“I think that we need to send a message that you can be a good Republican and not necessarily agree with every position taken by the party,” the fifth-term senator has said.

Democrats control the governorship and both chambers of the state Legislature. And Democrat Craig Hickman easily defeated Republican William Guerrette this month in a special election for the Senate District 14 seat.

Collins is not alone in Congress in taking heat for her vote at home. The Louisiana GOP censured U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy, and the Wyoming GOP censured U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney for her House vote to impeach Trump.

CHICAGO -- Two people opened fire at a Chicago gathering early Friday, killing one person and wounding seven others in the second such attack on the city's South Side in the past two weeks.

According to police, two males opened fire at the “pop-up party” in the Ashburn neighborhood, killing a 26-year-old man who was shot in the head and leaving the wounded hospitalized in conditions ranging from fair to critical.

The shooting followed a March 14 attack at another pop-up party in the Park Manor neighborhood a few miles east, where two people were killed and at least a dozen others were wounded.

The fatal shootings appear to be picking up even after a year in which they jumped dramatically in Chicago, from 495 in 2019 to 769 in 2020. The city is on a pace to record even more this year: As of Wednesday, there had been 123 homicides in the city since Jan. 1, compared to 94 during the same period last year, according to the police department.

There have also been more police officers shot or shot at. On Thursday, an alleged shoplifter at a Home Depot on the South Side shot a security guard and a police officer before he was killed in a shootout with police a short time later.

The Maine Republican Party State Committee decided Saturday against censuring GOP U.S. Sen. Susan Collins over her vote to convict former President Donald Trump at his impeachment trial.

The state GOP rejected the motion by a vote of 41 to 19, Collins' office said.

“Today’s decision is a testament to the Republican Party’s ‘big tent’ philosophy that respects different views but unites around core principles," Collins said in a statement.

“Our party has been most successful when it has embraced this approach to advance our shared goals of providing tax relief to families and small business job creators, pursuing fiscal responsibility and government accountability, promoting personal responsibility, protecting constitutional rights, and ensuring a strong national defense,” her statement read.

Collins was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump after his supporters breached the U.S. Capitol, interrupting the counting of electoral votes. The Senate voted 57-43 to acquit Trump.

About three dozen member Maine GOP officials, including Chair Demi Kouzounas, sent a letter last month to “condemn in the strongest possible terms” the senator's actions. And GOP members in county where Collins was born and raised last weekend approved a resolution saying her action undermines “conservative and ethical values.”
