Trump taps act­ing ICE head to main­tain post

The Washington Post - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

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.
