The Left Doesn’t Want To Deal With Facts Says Former ICE Director Tom Homan
Former Director of Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan says the Democrats has no idea how dire boarder issues are. Tom was at a heated hearing on Wednesday, where he was called a ‘bigot’ by AOC and the ‘Squad‘.
Homan was a guest on the ‘Brian Kilmeade’ show on Thursday doubling down on his position about the boarder. Tom was on The Hill squaring off with House Democrates. He was also called ‘inhuman’ and a ‘bully’ by Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).
Homan said ‘AOC and her Squad are guilty of continuously spreading false narratives about what’s going on at the boarder. Tom said he refused to remain silent when he knows that the accusations are false and meant to deceive the American people.
Homan said, “I did it when I was the ICE director, that’s why I took so much hate. Because I wasn’t going to play political games. I wanted to do my job, and tell the American people, what we do and what we don’t do. I wanted to tell the truth but the Democratic leadership can’t handle the truth”.
Homan Is Now A Fox News Contributor & Was Called To The Hill To Talk About His Former Role
Homan was called to testify before the House Oversight Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Subcommittee. The issue he was questioned about was the Trump Administration and their handling of requests for immigrates.
The requests concern, immigrates awaiting immigration hearings asking for deportation to be delayed due to medical issues or other hardships. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz(D-Fla), called Homan a bigot during the hearing, and said his entire testimony is false.
Wasserman-Schultz said “I think it’s important to really make sure that the jingoistic, bigoted testimony of Mr. Homan is called out. Called out as untrue, as being an outrage, and as a former official directing ICE, he should know better”.
Homan wasn’t sitting silent after basically being called a liar. He said during the hearing, ‘what did I say that was inaccurate?’ The Chairman of the committee, Jamie Raskin, (D-Md.) stepped up to restore order to the hearing.
Squad Member Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) Called Tom ‘Ruthless & Inhumane’
Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, said that Homan would be remembered as being ‘ruthless and inhumane’. Talib said that Homan rejected any immigrant seeking asylum during his tenure as the director of ICE.
Homan also did battle with AOC during the hearing, and said ‘instead of calling people names why don’t you try to change ICE laws you don’t like’. Tom said on Thursday that he really regretted not confronting AOC more during the hearing. He said at one point she ‘banged the gavel and said his time to speak has ended’.
Homan said that wasn’t even her place to interfere with his testimony. He said he would have told her, “this hearing is a joke, a circus and you’re the head clown”. Homan said the purpose of the hearing was to listen and get to the issues. But ‘instead the Democrats just wanted to spend five minutes insulting him’.
