Rashida Tlaib called for ICE chief “Ruthless and inhumane” for enforcing immigration law.
Maybe the police should stop enforcing rape and domestic violence perpetrators, too? After all, they put people in cages for those crimes.
Homan wanted to reply to her but she refused and then AOC refused his request but he did get a chance to reply during Chip Roy’s questioning.
Homan said that he found it appalling that Tlaib holds so much hatred for police. Like that’s a big shock. You can’t support terrorists and the police at the same time. That would be a conflict of interest.
The entire hearing was the socialists throwing bombs and then running away as fast as they could.
“Mr. Homan, as a fellow American I just want you to know, your contribution as acting director of ICE under this administration will always be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane treatment of asylum seekers.”
“I’m deeply troubled by your opening statement and continued assault on innocent lives, and I ask that this administration please stop playing politics with the lives of the children before this committee, but also with the lives of many Americans that are directly impacted by the continued broken immigration system in our country.”
Homan asked the committee to be given a chance to respond, but New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria-Cortez, who was presiding over the committee at the time, would not allow it. She instead said the next member who was up to speak — Texas GOP Rep. Chip Roy — could give up some of his own time to allow Homan a rebuttal.
“Let’s be frank on what ICE does. ICE last year took [enough] opioids off the street of this country that could have killed every man, woman and child in the United States twice. They’ve arrested thousands of sexual predators that preyed on children. They rescued thousands of children who were victims of predators. They’ve arrested hundreds of women who were victims of sex trafficking,” the former ICE chief said. “I am proud of the agency and ICE.”
Homan then noted that “nearly 90%” of the illegal migrants his agency arrests for immigration violations carry either a criminal background or a pending criminal charge upon apprehension.
“[This means they were] found in the county jail, which most likely means they weren’t a choir boy,” he continued. “I find it appalling that a member of Congress would throw that out there like that. In my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life.”
