Homan reacts to his explosive hearing on migrant detention centers


TELLING “THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER” THE DECISION TO INVESTIGATE MCALEENAN IS, QUOTE, VERY DISTURBING.>>>WELL, IT WAS AN INTENSE DAY, TO SAY THE LEAST, ON CAPITOL HILL TODAY AS FORMER ACTING I.C.E. DIRECTOR TOM HOMAN DELIVERED AN IMPASSIONED DEFENSE OF BORDER PATROL AGENTS, RIPPING INTO THE INACTION OF CONGRESSIONAL LAWMAKERS. LISTEN TO THIS EXCHANGE WITH ILLINOIS DEMOCRAT JESUS GARCIA.>>MR. HOMAN, I’M A FATHER. DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN? HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN UNDER YOUR WATCH? DO YOU NOT CARE? IS IT BECAUSE THESE CHILDREN DON’T LOOK LIKE CHILDREN THAT ARE AROUND YOU? IF I DON’T GET IT. HAVE YOU EVER HELD A DECEASED CHILD IN YOUR ARMS?>>FIRST OF ALL, YOUR COMMENTS ARE DISGUSTING. I’VE SERVED –>>I FIND YOUR COMMENTS –>>MY COUNTRY 34 YEARS. I’VE SERVED MY COUNTRY FOR 34 YEARS AND, YEAH, I HELD A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY IN MY ARMS IN THE BACK OF THAT TRACTOR-TRAILER. I KNELT DOWN BESIDE HIM AND SAID A PRAYER FOR HIM BECAUSE I KNEW WHAT HIS LAST 30 MINUTES OF LIFE WERE LIKE, AND I HAD A 5-YEAR-OLD SON AT THE TIME. MY MISSION IS TO SAVE LIVES. SO FOR YOU TO SIT THERE AND INSULT MY INTEGRITY AND MY LOVE FOR MY COUNTRY AND FOR CHILDREN, THAT’S WHY THIS WHOLE THING NEEDS TO BE FIXED. AND YOU’RE THE MEMBER — THE.>>[INAUDIBLE] ING.>>FIX IT.>>WE AGREE ON. THAT BUT I DISAGREE –>>THE ORDER. ORDER. [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS]>>GENTLEMAN’S TIME HAS EXPIRED. GREGG: JOINING ME NOW IS THAT GENTLEMAN, TOM HOMAN, FORMER ACTING DIRECTOR OF IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOM ENFORCEMENT. HE’S ALSO A FOX BUSINESS CONTRIBUTOR. DIRECTOR HOMAN, THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US. IT WAS QUITE A DAY TODAY. THE TREATMENT OF YOU WAS NOTHING SHORT OF APPALLING, IN PARTICULAR JESUS GARCIA WHO ACCUSED YOU OF BEING RACIST, WHICH IS WHAT UNINFORMED PEOPLE DO WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE A GOOD ARGUMENT, IT APPEARS TO ME THAT REPRESENTATIVE GARCIA IS THE RACIST HERE, AND YOU CLEARLY SAID YOU WERE DISGUSTED BY IT. HOW MANY LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED BY BORDER PATROL AGENTS, SIR?>>JUST THIS PAST YEAR THEY SAVED OVER 4,000 LIVES, BUT NO ONE WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THAT TODAY. AND, YES, I WAS INSULTED BY HIM AND MANY OTHERS. REPRESENTATIVE GERALD CONNOLLY FROM VIRGINIA. YOU KNOW, HE THREW OUT DIRT AND WOULDN’T LET ME RESPOND. IT WAS ABOUT POLITICAL THEATER. HE RAN OUT OF THERE LIKE A LITTLE GIRL. HE’S A COWARD. HE DIDN’T WANT TO HEAR MY RESPONSE. THESE PEOPLE DON’T WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO HEAR THE TRUTH. I SAID SEVERAL TIMES IN THIS HEARING THIS IS ABOUT TRANSPARENCY, BUT YOU WON’T MET ME RESPOND TO WHAT YOU’RE SAYING. IF THIS IS THE FOCUS OF CONGRESS, TO PUSH A FALSE NARRATIVE AND NOT LET SOMEONE LIKE ME WHO SPENT 34 YEARS ON THAT BORDER SPEAK TO ISSUE, THAT TELLS YOU WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. THIS IS ABOUT RESISTING THIS PRESIDENT, ABOUT OPEN BORDERS. THEY DON’T WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH. GREG GREG WELL, AND I COMMEND YOU FOR SAYING THAT THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. INDEED, THEY SHOULD. YOU KNOW, A DIRECTOR FOR THE LONG TIME, MOSTLY DEMOCRATS WERE SAYING, OH, THERE’S NO PROBLEM AT THE BORDER, THERE’S NO CRISIS AT THE BORDER, IT’S ALL A MANUFACTURED CRISIS. WELL, NOW THEY’VE CHANGED THEIR TUNE, HAVEN’T THEY?>>ABSOLUTELY, AND THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT THE APPALLING CONDITIONS IN DETENTION. AND NOW IT’S CLEAR TO THEM. I SAID THAT’S BECAUSE YOU FAILED. THE SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY ALONG WITH THE HEAD OF BORDER PATROL HAS BEEN ASKING FOR MONTHS FOR SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING TO MOVE PEOPLE, WOMEN AND CHILDREN — FACILITIES AREN’T BUILT FOR THEM — THEY’VE BEEN BEGGING THEM FOR MONEY, BUT THEY JUST KEPT DENYING AND DENYING AND DENYING THEM. EVEN AFTER THEY FINALLY DID APPROVE THE FUNDING, YOU’VE GOT ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ THAT DIDN’T SUPPORT THE FUNDING TO MAKE THE CONDITIONS BETTER. AND SHE’S STILL TALKING ABOUT DETENTION CONDITIONS ON THE SOUTHWEST BORDER. AND WE WOULDN’T HAVE ANY OF THIS. THERE WASN’T CONDITIONS ON THE SOUTHWEST BORDER THAT WOULD BE UNWELCOMING TO THESE WOMEN AND CHILDREN IF THEY WOULD HAVE DONE THEIR JOBS AND CLOSING LOOPHOLES WE’VE ASKED THEM TO CLOSE FOR TWO YEARS. GREGG: YEAH. YOU MENTIONED ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZED TODAY WHO DEMANDED THAT SHE BE SWORN IN TO TESTIFY, WHICH SEEMED TO CONFUSE THE CHAIRMAN BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THAT’S NOT NORMALLY WHAT HAPPENS SINCE YOU’RE A MEMBER OF CONGRESS. I WANT TO PLAY A CLIP AND THEN GET YOUR REACTION. HERE IT IS.>>IF I GET ARRESTED FOR DUI AND I HAVE A YOUNG CHILD IN THE CAR, I’M GOING TO BE SEPARATED. I WAS A POLICE OFFICER IN NEW YORK, AND I ARRESTED A FATHER FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE –>>MR. HOMAN, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, LEGAL A ASIGH LEES ARE NOT CHARGED WITH ANY CRIME.>>WHEN YOU’RE IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, IT’S VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES CODE –>>SEEKING A ASYLUM IS LEGAL.>>YOU WANT TO SEEK ASYLUM, GO THROUGH THE PORT OF ENTRY AND DO IT THE LEGAL WAY. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES HAS MADE THAT CLEAR.>>OKAY. GREGG: UNLAWFUL PRESENCE IN THE UNITED STATES IS NOT A CRIME, BUT YOU ARE CORRECT, SIR, THAT COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES ILLEGALLY IS A CRIME. SNEAKING ACROSS THE BORDER IS A CRIME. SO AOC WAS ENGAGING IN HER TYPICALLY INANE COMMENTS — [LAUGHTER] AND, YOU KNOW, AND SHE’S THE ONE WHO CONTINUES TO DECRY CONDITIONS AT THE BORDER, AND YET SHE VOTED HELL NO WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR A $4.5, 4.6 BILLION IN FUNDING TO RELIEVE THE CONDITIONS AT THE BORDER. SHE’S NOTHING BUT A HYPOCRITE, CORRECT?>>OH, ABSOLUTELY. AND, LOOK, EVERY TIME SHE OPENS HER MOUTH, SHE’S WRONG. I’VE NEVER HEARD HER SPEAK ONE TIME ON IMMIGRATION AND SHE BE ACCURATE. I’M A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, BUT IT’S ASTOUNDING THAT A MEMBER OF CONGRESS, A LEGISLATOR DOES NOT REALIZE ENTERING THIS COUNTRY IS A CRIME. SHE OUGHT TO DO HER HOMEWORK BEFORE SHE STARTS SAYING THINGS THAT AREN’T TRUE. SHE’S THE WORST POLITICIAN IN THAT COMMITTEE, AND, YOU KNOW, SHE DOESN’T KNOW FACT FROM FICTION, AND, YOU KNOW, SHE’S BEEN A CONGRESSMAN FOR SIX MONTHS. APPARENTLY, SHE’S AN EXPERT AT EVERYTHING, BUT SHE’S AN EXPERT AT NOTHING. GREGG: YEAH. SHE WAS A BARTENDER LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. NOT THAT I HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST PEOPLE — [LAUGHTER] BARTENDERS AND WAITRESSES, BUT IT DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN EXPERT ON EVERYTHING. MOST FRESHMEN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS KNOW TO KEEP THEIR MOUTH SHUT, TO LEARN, TO OBSERVE, TO LISTEN, BUT NO, SHE’S AN EXPERT ON EVERYTHING. WANT TO GO TO A MOMENT NOW WHERE YOU WERE SHOWING PHOTOGRAPHS OF CHILDREN AND ELDERLY PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN VICTIMIZED VIOLENTLY BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. TALKTOUS ABOUT THAT. TALK TO US ABOUT THAT.>>THERE IS A, YOU KNOW, THEY TALKED ABOUT FAMILY SEPARATIONS DURING THE ZERO TOLERANCE THING AND, OF COURSE, IT’S SAD WHEN A CHILD’S SEPARATED FROM A PARENT. BUT THE PARENT’S BEING PROSECUTED, AND THAT HAPPENS TO AMERICAN FAMILIES EVERY DAY. AND THE SEPARATIONS, EVEN THOUGH UNFORTUNATE, IT’S A NECESSARY PART OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM. IF YOU AND I GOT ARRESTED FOR DUI AND WE HAD A CHILD IN THE CAR, WE’RE GOING TO GO TO JAIL, AND THAT CHILD’S GOING TO GO TO CPS. IS SO I BROUGHT MY OWN PICTURES OF SEPARATION. THESE WERE CHILDREN THAT WERE KILLED BY ILLEGAL ALIENS, SOME RELEASED IN SANCTUARY CITIES AND BECAUSE OF THE OPEN BORDERS AND ALL THIS TALK DEMOCRATS HAVE, TRIED TO SHOW A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES. ONE WAS A FIVE-MONTH-OLD BABY THAT WAS RAPED, SEXUALLY PENETRATED BY AN ILLEGAL ALIEN AND MURDERED. A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL THAT WAS RAPED AND MURDERED, A 93-YEAR-OLD LADY THAT WAS RAPED MULTIPLE TIMES AND MURDERED. I AGREE, CHILD SEPARATIONS ARE SAD, BUT THAT’S A TEMPORARY SEPARATION BECAUSE THE PARENT’S BEING PROSECUTED. HERE’S SOME SEPARATIONS THAT ARE FOREVER. THESE PARENTS WILL NEVER SEE THESE CHILDREN AGAIN, AND THEY DIED A HORRIFIC DEATH. SO IF YOU WANT TO SHIFT GEARS FOR, YOU KNOW, THOSE SEPARATIONS, I GET IT. BUT HOW ABOUT SHEDDING SOME TEARS FOR U.S. CITIZENS THAT HAVE BEEN MURDERED, CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN MURDERED BY THE ILLEGAL ALIENS? I’VE MET WITH THESE ANGEL MOMS AND DADS, EVERY STORY’S TRAGIC. BUT THEY DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT. THEY WANT TO KEEP PUSHING THEIR FALSE NARRATIVE TO AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND I WASN’T GOING TO ALLOW IT TODAY. I WASN’T GOING TO ALLOW IT. GREGG: AND REPRESENTATIVES TALIB AND PRESLEY FINISH TALIB WAS IN TEARS TODAY, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE USING THE TERM ALL LEGAL IMMIGRANT IS DEROGATORY AND DEMEANING, AND SHE SEEMED TO BE BLAMING YOU AND OTHERS, AND YET SHE — SHE’S SO DUMB SHE DOESN’T REALIZE IT’S ACTUALLY IN THE LAW THAT CONGRESS WROTE, ILLEGAL ALIEN. AND YOU CITED THE STATUTE, AND THERE’S ANOTHER ONE AS WELL. SHE HAD TO LOOK THEM UP. SHE WANTS TO CHANGE THAT LANGUAGE, SHE OUGHT TO CHANGE IT HERSELF. SHE’S A MEMBER OF CONGRESS. CONGRESS CREATED THAT LAW WITH THAT LANGUAGE.>>ABSOLUTELY. THERE’S ANOTHER CONGRESSMAN WHO DOESN’T KNOW THE LAW. I MEAN, ILLEGAL ALIEN IS CLEARLY SPELLED OUT NOT ONLY IN TITLE VIII OF THE UNITED STATES CODE, THE IMMIGRATION NATIONALITY ACT WHICH, I CAN SAY, WAS ENACTED BY CONGRESS WHO SHE’S A PART OF. GREGG: RIGHT.>>DO YOUR HOMEWORK. BEFORE YOU GET OUT THERE AND ATTACK THIS ADMINISTRATION, THE MEN AND WOMEN OF I.C.E. AND THE BORDER PATROL, DO YOUR HOMEWORK. AT LEAST DO THAT SO YOU CAN BE ACCURATE AND TRUTH THEFUL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. GREGG: DON’T YOU KNOW THE MOD

  1. AOC and those like her want those Asylum Seekers to actually be able to get their feet on American ground once you're inside the Border you can't get rid of them , I agree with Tom if the assets were in place these people could be help at the boarder before they get into the country ,,, with there fake children lol.

  2. What a disgrace to insult a gentleman whose serving his country so faithfully for three decades.I salute you sir.Keep going

  3. I CRY FOR AMERICA. IDIOTS ARE SITTING IN CONGRESS TELLING US WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO LIVE. GO HOME, OCSIO, TLAIB AND OMAR. GO HOME GIRLS. OH! WAIT! THAT'S THE WRONG PHRASE. "GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM." THIS IS THE RIGHT WAY TO SAY IT AND IT WILL NEVER CHANGE.

  4. TOMMY ROBINSON IS A LEADER WITH GREAT COURAGE .HE IS BEING PERSECUTED BY THE ISLAMIC SELL OUT LEADERS OF THE UK

  5. MUSLIMS DO NOT AND WILL NOT INTEGRATE .WHY WOULD THEY WHEN THEY THINK OF US AS INFIDELS .CHRISTIANS STAND UP NOW AND SHOUT THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE ROOF TOPS

  6. Bottom Line: Democrats are a bunch of Dumbasses. PERIOD!!..Democrats doesnt even have an ounce of Credibility.

  7. A news analyst rarely blandly calls out anyone as racist… Especially when they are white, calling them racist from a new analyst is unheard of…This is Racist set up by producers and analysts and that disgusting jaba jaw big racist acting defensive…You all are racist.. fire burn you

  8. Thank you Mr. Homan for your great service to our great country. It's people like you that made it the best place on the planet.

  9. Just watching, am not an American, just strikes me how a supposed legislator be totally ignorant of the law. Seem comedic at times to see and hear them being schooled during hearings like kids by their teacher because they failed to do their homework.

  10. Rep. Garcia is a typical Illinois Democrat… all show no go….. this is why Illinois will fail. Btw AOC needs to go back to bar tending.

  11. U should be reborn agen an be a Mexican an then say the same thing then i well say ur right..fox news dont like anyone but white so fox news dont matter thay r not reall people so fox dont count.

  12. Garcia is DISGUSTING! The nerve of this guy! He doesnt deserve his seat and needs to go work at Wal-Mart.

  13. Are the exact the same policies, rules and regulations being enforced at our northern border? That is an illegal crossing like Mexico, right? Is a Canadian citizen treated the same way between British Columbia and Seattle? What about the Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, borders, etc lots of  unenforced land and water where crossings occur.? Asking for a friend

  14. i dnt hate the spanish!!!!
    but like that mad spainsih trash i dnt want to let stay in our Country!!!!!Sent back him !!!!!

  15. Is that right ?? I guess we know what side your family taking!! You people o ly k ow about losing your temper and name calling. Where is the responsibility??? Where is the accountability?? Where is the maturity? How can people work together to get they need if they spend their time at each other's throats over petty insults? God bless you all. I pray this is worked out soon?????♥️

  16. Hi! Mexican here: this gentleman is right, every country needs to secure it's borders.. if you wanna enter whatever country you wanna go visit or migrate you have to do it the legal way always.. illegal aliens are breaking the law, we have the same problem here in Mexico in our southern border, central americans are crossing to Mexico illegaly however and whenever they want.. and a lot of us here in Mexico want this to stop.. but the minute we express this to our countryman, they tell you : "you're racist, a bad person with no heart".. the problem is world overpopulation.. and very poor people are the ones who have lots of kids.. even if they don't have the means to support them.. i myself support LEGAL IMMIGRATION.. that is how it has to be done anywhere.. and if you wanna build your wall.. do it.. it's your country, i hope we could do the same here in Mexico in our southern border..

  17. DEMOCRATS ARE DISGUSTING. they take their racist marching orders, and off they go like little wind-up toys. no intelligence. no thought. no policies. only slander. PATHETIC.

  18. 8:50. Let's look at some TRUTH here. Rashida Tlaib WAS a MI State rep Before getting "voted" (with several polls in the district "mysteriously down" due to a multitude of factors in majority Black polling sites) SHE did not vote to keep schools open, thus in 2013 in Black majority neighborhoods Schools CLOSED. SHE has NOT supported black owned businesses, and her district is bleak and deserted. Had it not been for the efforts of the City of Detroit to TEAR down tens of thousands of homes, it would be Worse than now.
    She takes money from the Arab/Muslim community (lots of money) to ensure places like Dearborn Mi and Hamtramk Mi get funded for her ILLEGAL and ILLEGALLY funded cronies to bring ILLEGALS across the Canadian border. INVESTIGATE HER NOW!!!

  19. stop crossing the border illegally with your children, come in legally like everyone else, the president should build the wall to stop this nonsense I'm sick of it, it's time to secure the southern border

  20. I think AOC works for isis the only thing she does is spread lies and hate to try and separate our great country TRUMP 2020

  21. It's abundantly apparent that AOC doesn't know what the hell she's talking about. She never really appears to do her homework. She's made the most inane comments by any congressperson and every time she opens her mouth she inserts her foot. If you're seeking asylum you need to go through the ports of entry. Personally, anybody who seeks asylum due to persecution or threat of violence in their own countries should be welcomed with open arms, but you need to go about it legally, just as my Sicilian relatives, also persecuted and starving, did a hundred years ago when they entered the U.S. at Ellis Island.

  22. He hit the nail on the head! It's been before Congress to fix it for 30 years! The political agenda between parties is why our border has become such a black hole in American history!

  23. Why do you continue allowing this STUPID person have any voice in AMERICA, she is totally ANTI-AMERICA and should not be given any role in government!?

  24. GOD bless you Mr. Homan. God will punish those people who are ANTI-AMERICAN and should be ashamed of themselves. There are countries that would accept them as prisoners. I sure there are persons that would them a one way ticket.

  25. They should be ashamed of how they treated Homan. If they want those children to come in, let them go live with every one of the people accusing him. I’m sure they live in huge houses with extra bedrooms. Let’s see how long that last.

  26. Apparently they now allow members of Congress to accuse other officials of impropriety for the crime of being white.

  27. This inverted racism is getting worse. When people of different ethnicity from white Anglo Saxons want to shut down a discussion they accuse them of racism. This guy Homan has carried out his duties according to the laws of the land. If they don't like it they should look to change the law through political action, not attack the enforcers of the law.

  28. A glimpse into AOC's alternate reality…
    "Mam, The reason I stopped you is because you were doing 75 MPH in a 55 zone." AOC's response "Well, it's not illegal to drive your car from your house to work every day!" Cop's response "Oh, well, you got me there. have a nice day."

    WTF?! ROFL!

  29. Excuse me, But she is an expert at being the dumbass that she is and getting more that bartender pay to boot !!! I say she needs to go when she know even less that I do. I want her JOB and Pay.

  30. dems doesn't care about fixing america ,all they do is put on the show ,the only job they do is fighting with trump

  31. Congress and The Senate, as well as LEFTIES, think that screaming, crying, and NOT allowing a response makes them, Congress and the Senate correct, and moral.

  32. Some people simply want to push on their political agenda under the guise of compassion. The left always appeal to the heart of people and by doing so beclouding the facts.

  33. AOC is a joke, an immature child trying to do an adults job, impeach her! And that garcia big mouth, i wish the ICE director would take him out behind the barn and show him what respect is.

    n

  34. this girl blows high from the tower, blaming people who work. nowhere a proof day this crisis is intentional. if that is so then the left is guilty of it.
