President Donald Trump announced Friday that former Acting Director of ICE Tom Homan would be the new immigration czar for his administration.

Trump broke the news during a morning phone conversation with Fox and Friends.

The president said that Homan would take a "border czar" position and would report directly to him.

"He'll be a border czar, he'll be very much involved with the border, he'll be reporting directly to me, he'll be probably be working out of the White House but probably spending a lot of time at the border," Trump said. "He's a good man. Done a good job."
Homan served as the acting director of ICE in the Trump administration in 2017 before he joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in August 2018.

Homan oversaw deportations under President Obama. A Washington Post article at the time said, "Thomas Homan deports people. And he's really good at it."
