ICE Leader, Advocate of Tough Trump Immigration Policies, Will Retire

Thomas Homan delivers remarks during a law enforcement roundtable on sanctuary cities held by President Donald Trump the White House ICE Leader, Advocate of Tough Trump Immigration Policies, Will Retire

Thomas Homan, the acting director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, announced in a statement on Monday he plans to leave government.

Homan had initially filled the position on an interim basis while the White House looked for a formal nominee, an ICE official said Monday.

Homan has had a long career as an agency officer and was nominated to the ICE leadership by Trump, after having demonstrated his open support for the new immigration measures.

In a letter issued last Friday, "nearly 20 Senate Democrats asked the Department of Homeland Security to provide documents explaining why Homan's nomination had stalled, suggesting that the Department didn't want him to face scrutiny", continues the Post. "The decision to leave federal service after more than 34 years is bittersweet, but my family has sacrificed a lot in order for me to serve and it's time for me to focus on them".

An ICE official, speaking on background, said Homan, the agency's deputy director, was originally set to retire in January 2017, but agreed to remain at the agency as acting director when then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly asked him to stay on. The president's travel ban has been stuck in the courts for months, and his signature border wall has not been built because Congress, and Mexico, have been unwilling to pay for it.

Homan was first appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2013.

Homan had said that virtually every undocumented immigrant living in the United States was subject to removal, and the number of arrests of illegal immigrants with no criminal convictions rose sharply on his watch.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen credited Homan with increasing immigration arrests by 40% under his tenure, arresting more members of the MS-13 gang that Trump has anxious about so much, and improving agency morale.

The acting ICE director has been a strong proponent of Trump's hardline immigration policies, and arrests of undocumented immigrants with no criminal records have spiked under his tenure. "He has made my predecessors and myself better secretaries, faithfully upholding the Constitution and executing ICE's law enforcement mission". Lynn Tramonte, deportation defense coordinator for America's Voice, a group that advocates for immigrants, said Homan's tenure will be remembered as a dark one created to instill fear in the hearts of immigrants, their children and their families.
