Former ICE Director Tom Homan fired back at Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia (D-Ill.) for suggesting that Homan might not care about separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border “because these children don’t look like the children” that are around him.
“I don’t get it. Have you ever held a deceased child in your arms?” Garcia said on Friday during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing titled, The Trump Administration’s Child Separation Policy: Substantiated Allegations of Mistreatment.
“First of all, your comments are disgusting. I’ve served my country for 34 years. This is out of control,” Homan shot back. “Yes, I held a 5-year-old boy in my arms that was in the back of a tractor-trailer and knelt down beside him and said a prayer for him because I knew what the last 30 minutes of his life were like and I had a 5-year-old son at the time.”
Homan continued, “What I’ve been doing in my 34 years serving my nation is to save lives…you’re the member of Congress. Fix it.”
Garcia replied, “We agree on that.”
Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) jumped in and emphasized that he is “going to have civility” at his hearings. He gave Homan a chance to continue.
“No one has experienced what I have experienced. I saw many dead bodies come across this border,” Homan said, referencing a memo he signed that included the zero-tolerance policy as one way to “stop death” at the border. “If you want to legalize illegal immigration, good luck with that because it’s going to get a hell of a lot worse at that border if you say we’ll create, from now on, there will be no consequence, no deterrence.”
They are all disgusting they refuse to reform our immigration system, while wanting investigations on child abuse at detention centers? Stop investigating and begin legislating.
Further proof that the dems despise this country, its constitution, and its laws. Their antics over the last couple of weeks prove it. Make no mistake, these two POS represent the majority of the party. They are not two “outliers”.
Decide for yourself what the real outrage is. From the House hearings, yesterday:
Four heated moments from House hearing on conditions at border facilities
The real outrage is the Democrats politicizing human trafficking thinking it will gain them votes.
Let me know when Nancy Pelosi moves to a remote place on the border. She won’t. Instead she will tell illegals how to continue breaking our laws even after those illegals have been ordered to deport. Since she doesn’t represent them as their legal counsel, she is a criminal herself.
so now whore bog billy is involved in sex trafficking. what else can this country add to his f==ked up presidency.
@Greg: Showboat, dont legislate were the conditions better in previous administrations? What a political whore “You’re not at the border right now! You’re in a hearing room! It’s my time!”
meanwhile the detainees still sit during his time his time not spent reforming immigration, his time, to act concerned to act like he cares, to act act showboat.
Not finding the organizers that put these people in that situation, not secure the border, allow child trafficking, he is a piss poor actor.
“I don’t care!” Connolly responded. Yes the only truthful comment he said.
Your link only shows 1 not 4 piss poor actors.
Notice he didn’t stop his fellow scumbag Democrat from demagogueing the tragedy. THAT is what the Democrats care about; creating human tragedy, then politically exploiting it.
Those photos of AOC pretending to be distressed at the border when other photos show she was just posing for the cameras tell the true and full story. There was no crisis while Trump was trying to get them to help avert disaster. Then, when the crisis could no longer be hidden and lied about, it because an humanitarian crisis of epic proportions that Trump caused and they are all losing sleep over.
