Trump taps acting ICE head to maintain post
President Trump is nominating the acting director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to serve in the post permanently.
The White House said Thomas D. Homan’s nomination will be sent to the Senate on Tuesday. The Senate must approve the nomination by a majority vote.
Homan is an outspoken proponent of Trump’s immigration policies, making several appearances in the White House press briefing room to highlight the administration’s efforts to deport people in the United States illegally and to prevent unauthorized border crossings.
Homan previously ran ICE’s enforcement and removal operations division. He has served with the department for three decades.
