Biden ICE nominee Ed Gonzalez has history of denouncing agency he may soon be leading


Texas Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is in line to become the next leader of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a federal law enforcement agency that he resisted working with and criticized during the Trump administration.

President Joe Biden nominated Gonzalez, the Harris County sheriff, as director for ICE on Tuesday. Gonzalez worked for the Houston Police Department for nearly two decades before becoming sheriff, where he spoke out against ICE, a federal agency that is under the Department of Homeland Security and responsible for detaining and deporting immigrants residing in the United States without permission, as well as carrying out major investigations that relate to homeland security.

Gonzalez pulled Harris County out of an ICE program known as 287(g), which allows local law enforcement to be deputized by ICE to carry out federal immigration tasks in their own jails, a move that effectively duplicated ICE officers so that they did not have to be present in county jails.
