From Fox News to Border Czar, Meet Trump's Latest Hire
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."
