“A BORDER CZAR”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 14, 2019) — In a lengthy interview with “Fox & Friends” Friday morning beginning just after 8:00 a.m. EDT, President Trump made the announcement that former Acting Director of U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), a division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will be returning to government service.
As it was new information, the co-hosts asked Trump what Homan’s duties will be, to which he responded that Homan will be a “border czar” and “reporting directly to me.”
Retiring last summer after decades in various immigration-related government positions, Homan became a Fox News contributor in August. In reaction to Trump’s announcement, co-host Brian Kilmeade said that Homan is scheduled for a Saturday appearance on the show and that the network will eventually be forced to adjust to Homan’s departure.
As a commentator, Homan has expressed support for Trump’s immigration stances and advocated for Congress to take action to change current law.
Trump said that a formal announcement of Homan’s new position is scheduled for next week.
Trump’s interview with the co-hosts concluded at 8:50 a.m.
