Trump announces new Border Czar

Trump announced today that he has picked someone to be his new border czar:

NY POST – President Trump on Friday announced that Thomas Homan, the former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, will return to his administration as the new “border czar.”

“He’ll be a border czar. He’ll be reporting directly to me,” the president said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “He’s going to be very involved with the border.”

Homan’s nomination to be ICE director had been held in the Senate last year amid concerns from lawmakers over his record with the agency.

He had said that virtually every undocumented immigrant living in the US was subject to removal, and the number of arrests of illegal immigrants with no criminal convictions rose sharply on his watch.

Trump said he had intended to make the announcement next week, “but I’d rather announce it now.”

According to Wikipedia Homan has been a border agent, an investigator, and a supervisor and was also named to the executive associate director position during the Obama administration in 2013. Of course he was named as acting director of ICE in 2017.



Daniel Horowitz says that Homan’s appointment as border czar is amazing news, but he has just one question:

Well my guess is that since Homan will report directly to Trump, McAleenan will have the final say unless Homan gets Trump to overrule him on something. But who knows. I guess we’ll find out soon.

  1. “He’ll be a border czar. He’ll be reporting directly to me,” the president said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “He’s going to be very involved with the border.”

    So, I assume he’ll be picking out the paint color then?

    1. AT, I have a hunch Horman will have more responsibilities than picking out colors.McConnell could not get enough Votes from the RINOS to confirm his nomination as the Director of Ice,should tell you something.Secondly.If he is reporting directing to the President Then the DHS Secretary may not be there too long if he is not following the Presidents Policies.

      1. He’ll only have as many responsibilities as the wall demands. And right now, the only think we’re doing is painting it.

        And not even for some tactical/strategic value. It’s just not pretty.

        YOUR MONEY AND MILITARY AT WORK PEOPLE.

  2. Thomas Homan once suggested that ICE should conduct a “nationwide operation to locate, arrest, and remove those who have entered the U.S. illegally, including family units,” who have been given deportation orders.

  3. Watch the left scream czar is a Russian word and see how he’s tied in completely ignoring the fact Obama had like 5-10 czars. Can we please use a different term because when I hear czar I think communism.

  4. With Homan as Border Czar and Cuccinelli acting as USCIS Director, our immigration policy should be moving in the right direction.

  5. Put on yer Gallager outfits as splodey heads start splodin over this. I mean if this guy was held up by Congress because too many arrests were happening, there won’t be enough safe spaces for the snowflakes due to what I’m sure they’ll call a Trump “end around”.

  6. I like this guy. Have seen him in several interviews and he’s strong willed and knows the subject. He is very bullish on the border. I don’t know how much power the “czars” have but after hearing Homan, I say give him free reign.

  7. I’ve never liked “Czars”. I question their validity. Regardless, this seems like a good thing.

  8. I hope that he works out. If not, he can play The Thing in the next Fantastic Four movie.

  9. If that is the same guy I have been seeing on the Lou Dobbs show the past couple of weeks ,he will be pissing off all the Liberals and many RINOS.

  10. Thomas Homan once suggested that ICE should conduct a “nationwide operation to locate, arrest, and remove those who have entered the U.S. illegally, including family units,” who have been given deportation orders.

  11. For those who question the Divine intervention of Trump becoming POTUS in 2016, The book of Nehemiah gives insight…“And the man God chose was neither a politician nor a priest. Instead, God chose a builder whose name was Nehemiah. And the first step of rebuilding the nation was the building of a great wall. God instructed Nehemiah to build a wall around Jerusalem to protect its citizens from enemy attack…”

    Of course, since the democrats are not people of faith in the Lord, but rather worship false idols and the evil of this world, and because they hate Trump so much (they are filled with hate toward those who elected him, as well), Pelosi and Schumer (Sanballat and Tobiah) fight against the American people every day. But why? One reason is their vigorous funding from satan/soros, I am sure.

    Therefore, only We The People can fight satan, soros and steyer, hollyweird, the democrats and mainstream media by tossing them out and making them all irrelevant. It is a process, but we can do it…it happened before. History repeating itself.

        1. ….and that is what this is all about,get the wall finished so we can control the borders and if it works,money well spent.Thanks AT.

      1. I prefer mine neat @charli but honestly I think she banged her head too many times crawling out from underneath ole Willie Brown’s desk ..I think I just made myself throw up :mrgreen:

  19. No, the question is whether he’ll be able to close and lock the gates?

    If he can’t close all the gates the IWBC forced authorities to open to guarantee access to those oh so critical miniature obelisks in the middle of the desert, then what is the point of a fence? CBP? Or having a border at all?
