Deputy Director Homan, who has served under six presidents, recently announced he will retire this summer after a 34-year career in federal law enforcement. ICE’S mission is to protect America from the cross-border crime and illegal immigration that threaten national security and public safety. This mission is executed through the enforcement of more than 400 federal statutes and focuses on smart immigration enforcement, preventing terrorism and combating the illegal movement of people and goods. The second-largest criminal investigative agency in the U.S., Homeland Security Investigations, is a component of ICE.
The conversation, covering such topics as deportations, worksite enforcement, and sanctuary jurisdictions, was moderated by Jessica Vaughan, the Center's director of policy studies.
