Ronald Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, has been picked to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after the Saturday retirement of acting Director Thomas Homan, according to an internal email sent to a select group of agency employees Friday obtained by the Washington Examiner.

President Trump is expected to formally nominate Vitiello in the coming week, said a Department of Homeland Security official who asked to remain on background.

Vitiello has served in his current CBP role since April 2017, and he previously led U.S. Border Patrol as its chief operating officer for a year. He signed on as a Border Patrol officer 34 years ago and has worked in Texas, Arizona, Washington, D.C., and Vermont.

The article goes on to state the following:

Vitiello, 54, started his federal career within the Department of Homeland Security in 1985 at Border Patrol’s Laredo Station within the Laredo Sector in south-central Texas. The Chicago native began working his way through the ranks and in 1997 became deputy assistant regional director of Border Patrol’s Central Region Office in Dallas.

In 2007, Vitiello was transferred down to the Rio Grande Valley Sector in South Texas to serve as chief patrol agent of what is now the country’s highest-traffic sector for illegal immigration. He oversaw 12,000 Border Patrol personnel in that role.

He served as Border Patrol deputy chief from 2010 through July 2016 then was promoted to the executive assistant commissioner of operations support.
