Former ICE chief Thomas Homan was officially named President Trump’s ‘Border Czar’ Friday morning as part of the administration’s renewed efforts to crackdown on illegal immigration pouring into the United States.
“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.”
“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.”
“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,” Homan said during a recent interview. “No one should want our president to fail. His success is America’s success.”
Homan slammed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez last January; saying “every time she opens her mouth she’s wrong” after the Democratic-Socialist viciously attacked federal immigration agents.
“The President should be defending why we are funding such an agency at all, because right now what we’re seeing is death,” claimed Cortez Tuesday evening.
“It’s incredible,” said Homan. “Every time she opens her mouth she’s wrong. She needs to do her homework. First of all, no child died in ICE agency… If you want to blame somebody for deaths in custody, blame Democrats who refuse to close these loopholes.”
“She ought to be saying thank you. She’s from New York. ICE agents have arrested and removed thousands of criminals from the state of New York,” he added.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Trump to TOUR CALIFORNIA as the State SPIRALS Out of Control
President Trump will travel to the ‘Sanctuary State’ of California Tuesday; visiting the US border with Mexico and inspecting various prototypes of his proposed wall while meeting with law enforcement officials in San Diego and Los Angeles.
The President’s trip comes as the war of words between the White House and statewide leaders rapidly escalates; with the Commander-in-Chief blasting the Golden State’s flat-out refusal to cooperate with federal guidelines regarding illegal immigration.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke with officials in Sacramento last week, frankly stating “California, we have a problem” after the mayor of Oakland warned illegal immigrants of impending ICE raids; resulting in nearly 800 undocumented workers who evaded federal agents during the sweeps.
“I mean, frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crying mess like you’ve never seen in California,” Trump said weeks ago, warning there would be “crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country.”
The acting Director of ICE Tom Homan echoed the President’s comments in recent days; equating Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf with “gang lookouts” who warn drug-dealers of approaching law enforcement.
The Los Angeles Police Department warned residents of prolonged protests and demonstrations during the presidential visit Monday; adding they’re “prepared for anything.”
CALIFORNIA SCHEMIN': Officials CONFIRM Mayor’s WARNING KEPT 800 Illegal Immigrants on the Streets
The hyper-liberal Mayor of Oakland, California came under fire from national law enforcement Wednesday over her decision to “tip off” illegal immigrants of impending ICE sweeps; with US officials confirming her actions kept over 800 undocumented workers on the streets.
Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan slammed Mayor Libby Schaaf on Fox News this week, saying her decision to warn illegal immigrants of a federal crackdown directly endangered her community.
“She gave them warning, and there’s 800 that we were unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been,” said Homan.

Mayor Libby Schaaf made national headlines over the weekend when she warned Bay Area residents of impending ICE raids, telling illegal immigrants to be on the lookout for federal agents within their communities.
“I’ll say this to the mayor and every other politician that wants to vilify the men and women of ICE: We’re not going away. We’re going to keep enforcing the law,” Homan added.
