Trump picks immigration hardliner Tom Homan as ICE director

President Trump will nominate Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acting Director Thomas Homan as his pick to permanently lead the agency, the White House announced Tuesday.

Homan has run the agency since Obama appointee Sarah Saldaña - the former USA attorney in Dallas - stepped down when Trump took office in January.

Homan has more than 30 years of federal law enforcement experience, including stints as a Border Patrol agent, an investigator with the former Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the deputy executive associate director of ICE's enforcement and removal division.

"You can't be a part of this country unless you have respect for the laws of this country and the people that protect you - the people that enforce the laws", Homan said at the time. He has been particularly outspoken in broadsides against sanctuary cities, ripping local officials who refuse to cooperate with ICE deportation officers. The Senate must approve the nomination by a majority vote.

Later in June, Homan spoke at a White House press briefing, where he condemned sanctuary cities that don't carry out immigration detainers on undocumented immigrants.
