Ed Gonzalez, President Biden’s nominee to head ICE, faced questions from Senate committee members Thursday during a confirmation hearing. Gonzalez struck a moderate tone on immigration enforcement that seemed to appeal even to some Republican lawmakers. If confirmed, Gonzalez would be the first Senate-confirmed leader of the agency since early 2017, and his nomination comes as Biden attempts to move ICE away from the enforcement policies of former President Trump. Gonzalez’s nomination is expected to pass out of the committee with Democratic votes, but the question remains how much, if any, support he will find from Republicans.
