TRUMP APPOINTS ACTING DIRECTOR OF IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT
Replaces Obama holdover with deportation expert
President Donald Trump has replaced the former director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement with Thomas D. Homan, who will serve as acting director until a permanent candidate can be appointed.
Homan is a veteran of law enforcement with over 33 years experience, and 30 years involvement in immigration capacities, most recently as executive associate director of enforcement and removal operations – a position he has held since 2013.
He succeeds Daniel Ragsdale, a holdover from the Obama administration.
The Washington Postprofiled Homan in 2016 in a piece that began, “Thomas Homan deports people. And he’s really good at it.”
