I started with Ronald Reagan...No one has done more for border [safety], public safety,...

    Thomas Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is not going out quietly. The federal law enforcement agency chief is retiring from his post later this week, but not without having had the final word in a national fight over the role ICE plays.

Technically, Homan will be on the federal payroll until Saturday, but he will spend the day working remotely. In times of crisis, Red Cross fills in the government's gaps Watch Full Screen to...

"Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this...

    Agreement is test for national detainer authority.More than a dozen Florida sheriffs announced a deal Wednesday that will allow them to hold illegal immigrants wanted by the federal government for deportation, in what’s likely to be a key test case for cities and countries eager to cooperate but worried about legal problems associated with helping the Trump administration. Known as the Basic Ordering Agreement, the deal struck between 17 Florida sheriffs and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would allow local authorities to hold illegal immigrants even beyond the time they normally would have to be released based on state or...

    WASHINGTON - The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants the Justice Department to prosecute mayors and other political leaders in so-called "sanctuary cities" that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

We got to take them to court. And we got to start charging some of these politicians with crimes." Such a policy would dramatically raise the stakes for immigrant-friendly cities and states that have clashed with the administration....

Homan received an award from President Obama for his work on immigration matters. The agents and officers in the National ICE Council are sounding the alarm that such a bureaucrat would somehow be chosen by the Trump Administration to lead...
