Thomas Homan was born in 1961 In West Carthage, New York. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Utica-Rome.
He served as a police officer in Carthage before joining what was then called the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. He served as a border patrol agent, an investigator, and a supervisor before being named to the executive associate director position.
In January 2017, President Donald Trump named Homan acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director. He was nominated as the ICE Director in November 2017.
“The president has done more for border security and public safety than any of the six presidents I’ve worked for” said Thomas Homan, Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “Just since his leadership in January, border crossings are at a 45-year low. Now that’s’ not a coincidence. That’s because the president has left the men and women of Border Patrol and ICE to do their job.”
Immigration arrests surged in the first months of the Trump presidency. And the president’s demands for a border wall intensified last week after an undocumented immigrant was acquitted in the 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle.
President Trump tapped Homan, who has served ICE for more than 30 years, as acting director of the agency as soon as he took office. He nominated Homan as the permanent director in November.
