Thomas Homan: Obama’s Illegal Alien Deportation Chief Did Really Nasty, Gross, Sexual Stuff; Guns ‘N’ Strippers

By Debbie Schlussel

While the shutdown continues, one of those “essential government employees hard at work” (well, not really, but he collects a big paycheck) is Thomas Homan, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) top deportation cop.

But given the stories about Tom Homan, you have to wonder how such a disgusting, sleazy person still has a job . . . and why he’s not on the sex offenders registry or in the soon-to-be-released “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” But, as with everything else at ICE, the dung rises to the top.




Homan is Executive Associate Director of ICE for Enforcement and Removal Operations (a fancy name for “I’m in charge of deporting illegal aliens, but I don’t do much”). He is the top Department Homeland Security official for deporting illegal aliens, and as such, he has top secret security clearance. But the real Tom Homan isn’t someone who should have any of this.

Ever since Homan was mentioned on this site back in July, DebbieSchlussel.com has heard repeated stories of his disgusting behavior throughout his career at the INS and then ICE. The stories, with identical details, were repeated by several ICE sources who’ve worked with Homan and who cannot believe this person is still employed with the federal government, especially since his outrageous behavior makes him and our national security vulnerable to terrorist blackmail. Many current and former ICE and INS employees who worked with Homan wonder why he’s not on the sex offenders registry for exposing himself to them at the office.

Here are just a few of the Tom Homan “incidents”:

* Genitals-on-Phones:

It is well-known among his ICE and former INS co-workers that Homan used to go into fellow employees’ offices when they were away and rub both ends of the employees’ telephone handsets on his bare butt crack and testicles. Once the victims returned to their offices, sources say Homan would call them, so that the phone handset–now swarming with his genital and anal DNA–would touch their ears and mouths.

Attention, ICE personnel: if Tom Homan visits your office, best to wipe it down with Purell afterward.

* “Look at My Clam-Like Genitals”:

Anyone who worked with Tom Homan at INS in Phoenix back in the 1990s is all too familiar with Tom Homan’s genital area because, sources say, he walked around the office exposing himself. Agents say that he would frequently unzip his pants zipper, expose his scrotum, and say, “Look at the clam! Look at the clam!” (I suppose we should be relieved he didn’t allegedly shout, “Look at the crabs!”) It should tell you something about the former INS that it had an agent who did this . . . and yet that agent was employed until the last day of the INS’ existence. It should tell you a lot about ICE that this agent is now in ICE’s leadership and that his predilection for spreading his nether bacteria and display its “similarities” to sea life didn’t detract from his rise to the top.

* Guns ‘N’ Strippers:

Homan apparently likes to frequent strip clubs. Once, when he was getting a table dance from a stripper, er . . . “exotic dancer,” in Phoenix, he took off his government-issued gun. And he was so drunk, he apparently left his weapon in the strip club. For those not familiar: law enforcement leaving their service weapons behind for the public is a huge no-no. It’s grounds for major discipline and can also be the basis for termination. But not for Tom Homan.

* Lying Under Oath to ICE Investigators:

Homan bragged to third parties that he lied under oath to ICE Office of Professional Responsibility investigators when they questioned him in an investigation and when he testified at a hearing. The ICE agents for whom he lied were also found to have lied under oath and were fired. And, yet, Homan was promoted. So when Mr. Homan raises his right hand and is sworn in–as he was at the U.S. House hearing I wrote about this summer–it’s meaningless. How do you know he’s lying? His lips are moving.

So how did such a disgusting, immature, and incompetent man like Homan get this job?

Easy. He was hand-picked by former Obama immigration chief John Moron Morton, Morton’s chosen deputy Dan Ragsdale (a gay employee who openly discriminates against straight male ICE agents) to run ICE’s deportation division now known as Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), and Beth Gibson, another member of ICE’s gay mafia who was a top ICE official at the time. Homan is close with another ICE corruptocrat, the recently retired John Torres, who improperly used ICE resources to get jobs for his pregnant extra-marital girlfriend, pay his baseball idol Tommy Lasorda thousands of dollars for a speech (which had no relevance to ICE), and go to Major League Baseball games (for which he improperly accepted free tickets).

Torres passed up numerous more qualified candidates to reward his buddy Homan and hired him as Assistant Director of ICE for Enforcement. He also gave Homan a 25% relocation bonus to move from Dallas to D.C. which amounted to around $40,000 dollars. And he gave Homan “Senior Executive Status” (SES), which usually comes with a major pay increase. Homan is now making over $200,000 in salary and benefits. Corruptocrat crony capitalism dominates Homeland Security, especially at ICE.

Earlier this year, I told you about ICE’s new, quiet policy of “reverse escorting,” in which ICE flies deportation agents from places like Michigan to the Southern border to pick up and fly illegal alien youths back back to places like Grand Rapids and Detroit and give them sanctuary with pro-illegal alien non-profits, while the aliens await immigration amnesty and/or while the non-profits train them on what to say and help them fraudulently obtain asylum. My article was cited by U.S. Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) in a U.S. House hearing on border security, and Homan was asked about it.

Homan predictably lied and claimed that what I wrote wasn’t true. In fact, it’s all true . . . in spades. Your money is being spent to escort illegal aliens into the American interior where they are sheltered until they can stay here permanently.

And, now, you know that Homan–a complete screw-up who behaves like a 19-year-old drunken frat boy–is in charge.

Somebody needs to tell the Obama Administration and ICE that enforcing U.S. immigration law is not the same as working on the set of “Jackass.”

Apologies, though, to Johnny Knoxville for the comparison with Tom Homan.

Agreed. Love ’em or hate ’em, the “Jackass” franchise performers earned every penny they made.

DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 2:09 pm

Are there any photos of him doing these things?

Little Al on October 15, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Chief, Are you sure you want to see those things ?

    William on October 16, 2013 at 9:40 am

That’s a terribly insulting article Debbie, and frankly I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard from legions of drunken frat boys who are offended at being compared to Tom Homan, aka, “Hoe-man”.

Sean M on October 15, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    Dear Mr. M: You took the words right off my keyboard.

    And, now, you know that Homan–a complete screw-up who behaves like a 19-year-old drunken frat boy–is in charge.

    Dear Debbie: Drunken frat boys have more class.

    How many of these allegations are confirmed? Where are the feminists? Ordinary men can’t tell a woman she’s cute without getting fired for sexual harrassment and this….words fail me…creep is promoted? I want to vomit. Undecent exposure is a crime. Why did nobody call a cop?

    Miranda Rose Smith on October 16, 2013 at 2:51 am

Nothing surprises me about this at all but it does infuriate the f**k out of me when I think back on all the morally bankrupt ass clowns that should’ve been fired and/or gone to jail for their crap but the “good ol’ boy” network pulled them out of the fire. In the interim, the poor person who committed some relatively minor infraction got crucified.

Once again, glad to be done with that cluster!

I actually am a bit surprised. Ho-man is lower than even I had thought possible.

skzion on October 15, 2013 at 4:14 pm

This Tom Horn-Man is a real piece of work. I don’t get the clam thing but I LOLOLed at “crabs”. LOLOL!

I really don’t get the clam thing. It makes it even more sordid and pervy and sickening. It’s grossing me out!! Not that genital caused stink-phone is less nauseating!

And no one, not even freaky-deaky gay men into stud leather, likes to see the flaccid & hairy genital area of fat, bald, RED-headed men. EVER!!! Yuck-o!!

Skunky on October 15, 2013 at 4:48 pm

It was well known in ICE HQ that Mr. Ho-man had a relationship with his assistant or his chief of staff who now is what a shock the Deputy Field Office Director in Dallas. There is also the young lady who has been allowed work from home from Tennessee as a HQ employee for several years because Mr. Ho-man said she would look good on a stripper pole. Please someone abolish this agency and fire these despicable excuses for human beings.

I guess it’s true that Johnny Knoxville is at least professional when it comes to doing whatever it is he does

Frankz on October 15, 2013 at 6:11 pm

“ICE’s deportation division now known as Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).” It should be renamed Enforcement and Removal Operation Serivces (EROS)!

Anyway, WikiTurd where are you? I miss the s-t you were “just saying..” Jump in at any time, tell us how good and dissent Mr. Hoe-man really is and how many he saved w/o regards to his own safety.

I just remembered that I go back to when a lawyer felt free to complain, after a client left his office, that it smelled like a cigar.

Is this a bad time to tell Tom that someone has been running him down in meetings and behind his back? Rule 1, hire smart people you can trust, not a hungry rat. TR screwed ya.

Sleepless in Seattle on October 16, 2013 at 10:23 am

Debbie, well said but just be careful of this psychopath, from what you’ve written he is a real liability, hopefully he’ll hang himself before long.

One other point it is not ‘crony capitalism’ that phrase plays into the Fabians narrative implying that capitalism is bad, it is Corporate Socialism pure & simple.

Skaldcrow on October 16, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Well written Debbie. Especially the “Lying Under Oath to ICE Investigators” section. One thing that you failed to mention is that there is plenty of documented corruption under this joker’s CURRENT administration at ERO and ICE. All that a “real” investigative agency (not ICE) has to do is dig for the truth and it will be found. Homan and his superiors within ICE have failed to take action to address LEGITIMATE corruption complaints regarding violations of the federal regulations, and have allowed for their subordinate managers to retaliate against employees that report misconduct, and government waste, fraud and abuse. Homan and his superiors at ICE HQ utilize a system to dismiss SUPPORTED violation complaints through an internal self-check mechanism. This mechanism consists of hand-picked judges that have the authority to dismiss and cover-up any LEGITIMATE complaints that ICE senior management desires to go away by deeming them to be unsubstantiated.

There are no secrets in ICE, and the truth will always prevail.

lcie Karma on October 16, 2013 at 8:53 pm

This article is total Bull Sh*t just like most of the crap that is posted on this blog. Cowards like Robin Baker pump Schussel full of rumors that they start themselves in order to get back at people more successful than themselves. I’ve worked for ERO for over 25 years and I’ve seen managers come and go over the years and as far as I am concerned Holman is one of the better ones. And for all you expert ICE whiners out there that have all the exertise to criticise and none knowlege our will to lead, f*&k Off!

I hate whiners on October 18, 2013 at 10:39 am

So Homan likes strippers and flashed his sack in Phoenix? Unfortunately, I’ve seen worse. The fact is, the guy wasn’t nailed for anything (even if he should have been) and has a clean personnel file, if not moral compass. Senior maangement isn’t going to be privy to these rumors, and with an active clearance, how would Rgasdale and Co. know what he’d been up to? What we need is more detailed vetting of those assuming SES positions to judge their suitability. Vetting that would go beyond traditional clearance and into behaviors that might make them an organizational liability.

I dealt with this guy a few times years ago, and while not impresing me as the most brilliant person, he seemed pretty straightforward and uncomplicated. He keeps the parts moving and that is about all they want (which is more than his predecessors did). I am sure he toed the company line in his hearing, which was probably couched in such a way so as to insulate him from perjury. In all, I think we have bigger ocncerns that this sleazebag. At least he is not exposing himself to minors in public like one former HSI SAC(k). Yeah, I know, hardly the standards we want to keep, but what are ya gonna do…..

please on October 18, 2013 at 5:03 pm

I think “I hate whiners” is actually Hoe-Bag himself (note the lack of coherence in the paragraph).

Homan (AKA: Tommy The Retard, AKA: Tommy) is just a fat guy with a silly moustache that wears outdated suits and buys those shirts in a box that come with a tie. His biography states that he has a Bachelors degree, but does not list the university he attended, which usually means that the degree is from a paper mill.

Hoe-Bag’s control and inappropriate behavior issues were widely known in INS and ICE, it was no secret. Hoe-Bag (whose job in INS “investigations,” like most INS special agents, was probably writing up and serving paper on illegal aliens in jails and prisons) left ICE investigations and went to TSA to escape an investigation against him. His buddy, Matt Albence (another former INS flunky without any substantial investigations experience) eventually joined him in TSA to avoid the hammer coming down on him because of his inability to actually manage the academy which he was put in charge of). And like most former INS personnel, they are allowed to transfer between HSI and ERO at will, or come back anytime if they leave ICE, Hoe-Bag and his wingman Albence returned to ICE.

Hoe-Bag actually fits in with the model for ICE managers. They are people who have no real skills, education, or qualifications that know that the job they have pays, all things being equal, better than any they could get on their own merits. That way you have an employee that is not so interested to doing what is lawful, correct, or moral, but instead, whatever they are told to do. They are employees that are completely beholden to those above them. It is interesting that ICE has all these former Customs agents with college degrees, years of LE/Investigations experience, and the powers that be choose to appoint people lacking education and experience to positions of authority. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out why.

King David on October 18, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    I was an ICE Agent and I have since retired a couple years back. I cannot believe that 11 years after ICE was created you are all still very eager to tear each other down. No other federal law enforcement agency eats itself from the inside. Truly sad.
    So you are all actually going to dissect someone’s career back 20 or 25 years? Really? So you are all innocent of foolish behavior in your 20’s? You can all afford to live in glass houses? You can tear almost anyone down for things that allegedly occurred 20 years ago, but to what end? Did Homan play jokes and act like it was a frat house. I am sure he did, but didn’t we all back then? I was an agent with INS back in the 80’s and 90’s. I know I did. We were a tight knit group that played jokes on one another all the time. And when you were the victim of one, you planned your reprisal and that reprisal would be even worse. Much worse than I read above. That is the way it was back then. No one was ever hurt and everyone had a laugh. 25 years ago was a different time and a different place. Law enforcement officers were always coarse and the jokes were hard. The sacred mother and wife jokes were always game for us as long as it was among us. And any law enforcement officer that is reading this post will understand that and also understands that camaraderie means we pick on one another and create laughs whenever we can. We all did things back then we wouldn’t do today. Times have changed but I still think cops are cops.
    People on this site are quick to pile on and spread the hate and I truly doubt that anyone of you is truly innocent of foolery. Not if you have been in the law enforcement game for a long time. And especially if you were in the game 25 years ago. I know I am not innocent. I did worse things than what was talked about above! It was a frat house mentality back then and I can attest to that because I was there and a part of it. For your sake, I hope there is still some frat house play among the younger guys. Police and fireman work hard and they play even harder. It was always that way. Any law enforcement officer on this site “gets it”. Anyone that doesn’t have a hidden agenda “gets it”. Anyone’s career can be dissected back 20-25 years if you have that long in the job. Cops were cops. They worked hard. They played hard and they were ruthless to each other in the name of fun.
    There were about 18, 000 LEAs in ICE when I left. It makes me somewhat proud that only 8-9 ICE people have piled on the hate here. I am glad to see that 99% of the LEAs are not jumping on the band wagon because they “get it”. I saw the name of Robin Baker above. It has been well known for years that he gets on this site and spread hate in order to hurt people. And anyone that knows Robin Baker also knows that he has more skeletons in his closet than anyone. Who is he to talk? But because I “get it”, I will not spend the next two pages naming specifics and repeating things about him many of you already know and many you probably don’t. What I do know about him is that he has been in the game a long time also. And shame on him for being the way he is. Karma will get him. As far as Homan goes, Hell, I want to have a beer with him!! We can trade stories.
    What really is sad is that there are those few people out there that live to hurt someone and in turn, will someday hurt someone’s family. To me, that is not law enforcement camaraderie. Maybe the brotherhood of law enforcement has changed for the worse. If so, I am glad I’m out. What have we become?

    Retired Guy on October 20, 2013 at 3:04 pm

All this serious talk! Let’s get back to who else has licked the clam for a job!

Too Serious on October 22, 2013 at 12:39 am

Well said retired guy! I check this site from time to time and it is always the same whiners piling it on, especially “King David.” I am going to guess KD is a frustrated journeyman agent with a masters degree who cannot get promoted. He is obsessed with pointing out that many INS folks didn’t have degrees and those who claim to have one must be lying.

I started with INS back in the 90’s and was hired under the Veterans Readjustment Act. INS was a big supporter of the VRA, one of the few agencies that realized four years of military service was probably better preparation for life than four years of college that mommy and daddy paid for.

KD, correct me if I am wrong, are you a journeyman agent or have you made your way to management? Can you pass the promotional assessment? Let me guess, you are one of those guys who has no desire to promote and have never tried in your career, even though in your own mind you know you are so much smarter than everyone else. I am going to throw the BS flag on you. It is obvious you are some whiney little puke who got hired by Customs right out of college and have never been able to move up the proverbial ladder. I would love to know what huge cases you have worked.

I worked for Tom Homan and I can tell you and DS that this guy has more common sense than any manager in ICE. He is an agent’s agent. He always backed those who were out doing their job and had no pity for slackers. If DS really cared about immigration enforcement and did her homework, she would see Tom Homan is the best friend she could have. He is a straight shooter and he gets it.

It is easy to throw out accusations on the internet and hide behind a screen name. DS has done some good stories in the past, but I think she has gotten to the point of sensationalism, throw a bunch of mud and see if any of it will stick.

KD, you have to be the most pathetic, whiney, miserable little Sh$t I have ever had the displeasure of reading. If you are such an educated super agent, why aren’t you running the agency? Let me guess, because of a huge conspiracy perpetrated by a bunch of uneducated, sexually depraved, former INS agents!

You are what is wrong with this agency, it has been over ten years, my guess is you have been an ICE agent longer than you were Customs.

Now spend the next hour finding all my grammatical errors so that you can point out your intellectual superiority. I am going to have another glass of wine, yes wine. Believe it or not all former INS agents don’t live in trailer houses and drink Keystone Light.

Does it matter on October 22, 2013 at 9:07 pm

Let’s get back to that piece of crap Baker. The pussy that spends his days hiding in his office because he is afraid to get out in the field and get his hands dirty. The truth is he has his head so far up Williams Jr. Arse because he is hoping Jr’s dad will give him a job when he retires. Do you really think Williams Sr. Is going to give a job to a weak manager like Baker that can’t produce? Please Baker, ERO is going to be a much better organization when crappy managers like you retire. San Diego is much better off now that you are gone. Hopfully you are planning to give your lacky Garzon a job so we can get rid of him also!

I hate whiners + Does it matter = Thomas Homan.

King David on October 27, 2013 at 11:21 am


Is that all you got? I had a double negative at the end of my post. Now let’s get back to you and your stellar career. I will admit, I am no super-star, but I don’t claim to be.

How about you, always putting everyone down and going on about how great Customs was and how all the former INS folks are unqualified. I bet you have a former INS agent as your supervisor and you are pissed off because you can’t get promoted in spite of your greatness.

I am not Tom Homan but nice try. I have noticed that is page one of your play book. If someone comes along to defend someone you malign then it must be that person.

So tell me about yourself, how long have you been on the job, what great cases have you done, what offices have you worked out of?

Does it matter on October 27, 2013 at 9:11 pm

Does It Matter is spot on. While I don’t know Homan personally (nor does KD) I did have the opportunity to work with Albence and found him to be a serious, no nonsense and professional agent. In particular KD’s statement about Albence’s tenure at the academy is so far off base it reveals that he doesn’t have a clue about those he seeks to malign. Needless to say Albence’s leaving had more to do with an issue with another screwed up part of ICE and not his abilties as a manager. I get it if you don’t like someone or even know they’ve been a screw up in some respects. But why the constant flaming?

Wonderful Counselor on October 30, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Gonna have to update this story, Deb!

FORD on January 30, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Debbie, as you know, I’ve long reported on CBP/ICE issues, corruption, and sex rings, and am certified as an expert before the U.S. District Courts on the subject and have served as an expert witness on DHS and DOJ before the Congress. I’ve long heard the same things from whistleblowers and documented similar issues. I also presented info to the Congress about DHS reps documented perjury under oath in sworn testimoy, and Obstruction of Congress. Homan was part of the panel who did this on June 27, 2013 in a hearing before the National Security Subcommittee of the House Oversight Committee. They were ordered to do so, due to the fact that S-744, the amnesty by the Gang of Tr8ors was being voted upon by the Senate that very day. He should have been fired and prosecuted for his actions… and here he is promoted now to Acting Director. It’s beyond words… Oh, so folks don’t believe the perjury and obstruction part? Here is the actual footage from the House Oversight Committee’s own webpage – https://oversight.house.gov/hearing/border-security-oversight-identifying-and-responding-to-current-threats/
