Trump picks immigration hardliner Tom Homan as ICE director

14 Novembre 2017

Homan previously ran ICE's enforcement and removal operations division.

"Today's announcement that Thomas Homan has been nominated to serve as the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is welcome news to everyone who believes that firm, but measured enforcement of our nation's immigration laws is vital to our security and the interests of the American people".

However, Iranian officials said there were no longer any likelihood of finding survivors and called the rescue off. The authorities said water and electricity had returned to most affected regions.

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 USA illegally and to prevent unauthorized border crossings.

During his time as ICE acting director, Homan has been a vocal proponent of the Trump administration's tough immigration enforcement policies. The Senate must still hold confirmation hearings and approve his nomination to serve in the role permanently.

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.
