Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) today issued the following statement on President Trump’s nomination of Thomas Homan to serve as Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Chairman Goodlatte: “Tom is the perfect candidate to lead U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He has dedicated his career to serving the American people, has decades of experience at ICE, and has risen through the ranks to his current senior management position. As Acting Director, Tom has steered ICE back to its core mission of enforcing our immigration laws and keeping our communities safe. Through his leadership, ICE has removed thousands of criminal aliens from our streets, taken effective action to combat MS-13 and other transnational gang violence, and has given victims of illegal immigrant crime a voice in their government. I urge the Senate to quickly confirm Mr. Homan as ICE Director so that we can continue to work together to ensure our laws are enforced and the American people are kept safe.”
