Ron Vitiello resigns ICE post after Trump withdraws nomination Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Ron Vitiello resigned Wednesday, days after President Donald Trump withdrew his nomination to permanently head the agency.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced Vitiello's departure, which comes three days after she revealed her own resignation.

"During his tenure leading ICE, Ron has been an unwavering advocate for the dedicated men and women who enforce our immigration laws and protect our nation from the illegal entry of drugs, human trafficking, transnational criminals, counterfeit goods, and so much more," Nielsen said.
