“Let’s be frank on what ICE does. ICE last year took [enough] opioids off thestreet of this country that could have killedevery man, woman and child inthe United States twice.They’ve arrested thousands of sexualpredators that preyed onchildren. 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.”
Rashida Tlaib may have regretted opening her mouth last week as she called Former ICE Director Tom Homan “ruthless and inhumane” toward asylum seekers.
“Mr. Homan, as a fellow AmericanI just want you to know, yourcontribution as acting directorof ICE under this administration will always be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane treatment of asylum seekers,” Tlaib said Wednesday during her closing remarks.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller:
Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib and former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chief Thomas Homan traded barbs on Wednesday after the freshman lawmaker attacked his tenure atop the agency.
During the House Oversight hearing, Tlaib took time out of her speech to specifically target Homan, who formerly served as President Donald Trump’s acting ICE director. Homan was a part of the panel that spoke before the committee.
“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,” Tlaib said Wednesday during her closing remarks.
“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,” the Michigan congresswoman said
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.
Homan was given a chance to respond after a brief exchange about the medical deferment program and how ICE would manage it.
“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.”
Here’s another take from our friends at Next News Network:
The Democrats ACT clueless about the importance of ICE and have politicized and publicly scrutinized an organization that keeps Americans safe.
The Democrats have admitted that they want secure borders.
They just don’t want to give Republicans a political win by seeing Trump’s wall finished.
Don’t believe me?
Check this out:
Democrats want secure borders?
That’s what Perez said and it was RECENT.
But what about other Democrats?

- Civil War? Democrat Congressman threatens fight ‘in the streets’ if Trump declares national emergency over border

Democrats can not stand for President Donald Trump to get credit for anything.
Their policies change and adapt with their political opponents.
Democrats stand for NOTHING except opposition to Republicans.
