On the same night the acting attorney general was fired for insubordination, the Trump administration named a new acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Acting ICE Director Daniel Ragsdale was relieved of his temporary duties Monday night and replaced by Thomas Homan. Mr. Ragsdale will go back to previous job as deputy director.

Mr. Homan has been ICE’s executive associate director of enforcement and removal operations since 2013.

“I am confident that he will continue to serve as a strong, effective leader for the men and women of ICE,” Homeland Security secretary John Kelly said in a statement.

Unlike the firing of Sally Yates as acting attorney general, the replacement of Mr. Ragsdale was not accompanied by specific criticisms of him.
