ICE on Fire: ICEman Attacks "Clean" DACA Bill, Praises President Trump

 

KSAT ABC San Antonio

News reports make it sound like the current acting director of ICE is reading from the same immigration playbook as President Trump.  Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan yesterday blasted Congress for its decades-long failure to fix the root causes of illegal immigration, and warned against a "clean" Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program bill without border security measures. "If we get a clean DACA bill, shame on all of us. You can’t address DACA and reward people that brought children here illegally and not address underlying reasons of DACA," Homan told around 200 ICE officers, Border Patrol agents, and Department of Homeland Security officials in San Antonio at the Border Security Expo.

"Sanctuary cities, end them. Detainers, legislate them. TVPRA, change it," he said of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. "Asylum, raise the bar. We have the knowledge to fix it, but you know what we need is the willpower of Congress ... I've been doing this 34 years, we’re talking about the same thing every year." In a passionate 40-minute speech, a red-faced Homan told officers he will never stop defending his 20,000 employees from politicians and reporters who criticize the agency.

Seems to me that this horrid excuse for a human is the one who should be deported. What an amoral, ignorant approach to dealing with young people brought here through no choice of their own. This is their country, too. This is the only country they know. Homan should be hustled to the airport with just a carry on, forced to leave his family and life behind, and given a one-way ticket to Malaysia or Iceland or Namibia. Maybe with that kind of experience, he'd grow a conscience...Probably not.
