Good news -- acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Thomas Homan is planning to resign next month.
The Wall Street Journal first reported this evening that Homan will resign rather than go through the process of a formal confirmation.
WASHINGTON— Thomas Homan, the controversial acting director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, plans to retire and leave his post, three people familiar with his plans said. [...]
One person familiar with Mr. Homan’s reasoning said the prospect of a tough, partisan confirmation process persuaded him to leave the agency now. Another person said family considerations played a prominent role.
It's possible that "family considerations" did play a role in his decision, but it's a good bet that he would have been torn to shreds by Democrats in the Senate. Even a handful of Republicans may have raised tough questions for Homan, a man who has diverted a considerable amount of federal resources and money to arresting and deporting people who pose no threat to society.
Homan's ICE has gone out of its way to arrest every immigrant they come across regardless of how long they've been here or what their personal circumstances are. People who've been here for 30 or 40 years have been deported by Homan's roving bands of lawless thugs.
It would take hours to list every despicable thing ICE has done under Homan's orders.
Good fuckin' riddance.
