During an interview with ‘Fox and Friends,’ President Trump says former ICE acting director and Fox News contributor Tom Homan is coming back to the White House as a ‘border czar.’
President Trump on Friday revealed that former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan is returning to the administration as a “border czar,” as he seeks to combat a migration wave at the southern border.
Trump said that Homan, who was acting director of the enforcement agency until June last year and is currently a Fox News contributor, would be a “border czar.” It is unclear what Homan’s exact title and role will be, as a czar is normally an informal term.
Homan has remained a strong supporter of the president’s immigration policies since leaving his post, and has praised Trump’s response to the surge in migrants attempting to enter the U.S. via the southern border.
