Obama-Era ICE Director Fires Back at Democrats

With the eyes of the nation on impeachment, we overlooked testimony given by former ICE Director, Tom Homan before the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship. 

Homan exquisitely destroyed Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) for harping on the supposed failures of the Trump administration while ignoring that the Obama administration had many of the same policies.


Homan also criticized the Democrats overall for not working with President Trump to secure the border. When he said that, Jayapal cut him off with a pounding gavel, to which Homan responded, “this is a circus, this is a circus.”

Thursday’s hearing was labeled “The Expansion and Troubling Use of ICE Detention.”

In a statement, House Judiciary Chariman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said, “Over the last seven months, this Committee has devoted considerable attention to the Trump Administration’s cruel policies at the border and its attempts to deter individuals from seeking asylum and other humanitarian protections from our nation. Today, we shift our focus to examining the impact of the Administration’s approach to immigration detention in the interior of the United States.”

During the hearing, Acting Chariman Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) criticized the Trump administration’s handling of thousands of illegal immigrants at the border, many of whom are being held in detention centers until their claims for political asylum in the United States can be processed.
