Thomas Homan as the Director of ICE
When Trump came into power, he demoted Daniel Ragsdale to Deputy Director of ICE. This made Thomas Homan an Acting Director in 2017.
It was reported that Homan said, “aliens commit more crimes than U.S. citizens.” He denied saying this and said undocumented citizens “should be afraid.”
Later, in 2017 Trump nominated Thomas to be the Director of ICE. In 2018, Homan announced his retirement from the acting Director position in ICE. He earlier said in 2018 that the politicians who support sanctuary city policies must be charged with crimes.
Under Donald Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy, many immigrant children were separated from their parents. There was less possibility of them uniting as many parents were already deported.
Thomas Homan was vocal about this issue and said, “I’ve heard many children cry in my 34 years,” and “I don’t need to hear children cry,” in an interview.
Homan also said, “When the government chooses to enforce the law, and they separate the parents who have been prosecuted, just like every U.S. citizen person in this country gets separated when he gets arrested… but people want a different set of rules for an illegal alien,”
In an interview with another network, Thomas said, “I think it is the law,” “The parents are making a choice. They’re choosing; they are taking it upon themselves to enter illegally and have the children taken away. So if anybody is to blame here, it is the parents who made a decision to break the law.”
Homan always supports Trump and has praised his tackling of the illegal immigrants entering the U.S. through the southern border.
