ICE Head Cancels Meeting With Hispanic Dems
ICE head cancels meeting with Hispanic Dems
A meeting between congressional Hispanic Democrats and the Trump administration’s top immigration enforcement officer was canceled abruptly Tuesday in the wake of national immigration raids that have roiled Latino leaders.
Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Tuesday that he would not be attending the meeting, according to CHC aides.
