The retiring chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Thomas Homan, was asked in an interview over the weekend what he feels should be done about ICE and the way they have been treating illegals seeping through our southern border. What he said is bound to upset a few anti-American open borders leftists.
Homan made clear he wants President Donald Trump to get even tougher on Congress in the future and pressure them into finally funding the 10,000 additional ICE employees he ordered be hired in an executive order a year and a half ago.
“I would like President Trump to work with Congress to get our needed resources. We need money to do our job,” Homan told the Washington Examiner during his final days in office. “The president has tried. He talked about giving us 10,000 more officers. We haven’t seen that happen yet because Congress hasn’t funded it.”
As Written By Right Wing News:
Trump’s action mandated ICE carry out all existing immigration laws whereas former President Barack Obama had instructed ICE to prioritize who it went after.
“It’s just a fact that our sitting president of one year has made a big difference,” he said. “I’ve worked for six presidents. I started with Ronald Reagan … No one has done more for border [safety], public safety, and law enforcement than President Trump.”
The 34-year law enforcement veteran’s departure comes just as some Democratic lawmakers and political candidates have escalated calls to abolish ICE.
“It’s insulting that a member of Congress would say ‘abolish ICE’ when we’re enforcing the laws that Congress enacted. They give us a set of laws that we’re supposed to enforce and they give me the money to do it, then say ‘abolish ICE,’” Homan explained. “We’re doing what you told us to do.”
Homan explained that because Congress continues to fight the Trump administration, they’re causing the family separation issue.
