Their efforts will fail…
President Trump 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.
“Tom Homan’s coming back, I would say that would be announced next week except I’d rather announce it now,” Trump said in an interview with “Fox and Friends.” “He’s going to be very much involved with the border, that’s what he really wants to be involved with.”
Trump said that Homan, who was acting director of the enforcement agency until June last year, would be a “border czar.” It is unclear what Homan’s exact title and role will be.
“He’ll be a border czar, he’ll be very much involved in the border, he’ll be directly reporting to me, working out of the White House but spending a lot of time at the border,” Trump said. “He’s a good man, he’s a good man.”
Homan has remained a strong supporter of the president’s immigration policies and has praised Trump’s response to the surge in migrants.
Most recently, he praised Trump’s deal with Mexico and criticized Democrats for opposing his efforts.
“God help us if another tragedy falls upon us because Democratic leaders in Congress want to play politics with our safety and are blinded by their drive to see our president fail,” he said. “No one should want our president to fail. His success is America’s success.”
