Tom Homan’s Battle with House Democrats

Friday, former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement ICE Chief Tom Homan was called to Washington where he was berated on his lack of humanity by several House Democrats.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee had called Homan there for a hearing that would focus on the treatment of migrant children at the Department of Homeland Security facilities along the southern border of the US. However, when Democrats on the Committee began to attack Homan and falsely accuse him of being racist, things got a little heated.

Democrat Representative Jesus Garcia said Homan didn’t care about migrant children dying, implying that it was because they didn’t “look like” his own children.

“How can you possibly allow this to happen under your watch? Is it because these children don’t look like children that are around you?

Really? How could someone be so insensitive?

But Homan wasn’t about to let that go.

Homan quickly responded with, “Your comments are disgusting. 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! You’re the member of Congress, fix it!”

Homan began working for the department in 1986 when it was still known as the Immigration and Naturalization Service as a border patrol agent. Since then he has been promoted and worked as an investigator and supervisor being named Executive Associate Director in 2013.

He has spent 30 years caring for children and their needs near the southern border. To think that his life of service could be so quickly dispatched by someone who has never walked in his shoes is despicable.

Garcia said that he agreed with Homan that the problem needed to be fixed, but he didn’t like Homan’s thoughts on immigrants being involved in criminal activity.

But Garcia wasn’t the only one to attack Homan’s humanity.

Representative Gerry Connelly from Virginia called Homan’s supervision of migrants being treated as “subhumans” in border facilities “hardly humane care.” He also accused Homan of mistreatment of humans and said it was all done in the name of the American Flag.

Connelly ranted, “Is there no limit to what you will justify in this administration when it comes to the mistreatment of our fellow human beings and do you have no shame about the facts, as our colleagues said this morning, it’s all done in the shadow of the American Flag?”

And before Homan could even begin to defend himself or his fellow border patrol workers, newcomer to the House, Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan started her own rant and dramatics. She spoke of her visit to the border, as she starting crying. Tlaib claimed even the term “illegal immigrant” is a form of mistreatment. She said it treats them as not human. Tlaid went on to say that “no one is illegal” and added, “that term is derogatory because it dehumanizes people.”

She obviously doesn’t understand the term then. The word illegal has nothing to do with mistreatment or even thinking less of someone else. What it means is simply that the person it refers to has broken the law. Should we ignore that and just let them continue their illegal activity?

Homan responded by saying that he was “extremely frustrated” by the congressional members’ accusations and characterization of him.

However, Congressman Connelly said, “I don’t care! You’re not at the border right now! You’re in a hearing room! It’s my time!”

Wow…sounds like someone may have a bit of a God complex. Obviously, all that mattered to him and the other Democratic committee members was what they wanted to say.

But Homan was going to give them even the slightest satisfaction.

He said, “The same people that vilify (the) Border Patrol for detention conditions are the same people that refuse to answer the call for help until it’s too late.” It was a well-placed jab at Democrats who delayed and then refused to back a bill that would give additional funding to the agents at the southern border for improved facilities and supplies.

After the hearing, Homan told Fox that he didn’t mean to be confrontational but that he had “had enough.” He said, “I thought about getting up and throwing that man a beating right in the middle of the room because when you tell someone who has spent their career saving lives that I don’t care about dying children and I’m a racist, that’s where I broke.”

  9. Well Done Chief Homen!!!. It was extremely satisfying seeing your exchange with several of the Democrats. As you said, it simply boils down to the Democrats complaining and making false accusations to the one person that cares and is trying to do something on a daily basis. Congress has fought against President Trump since the day he was elected. It’s ridiculous! They are the only ones that can fix this problem. Yet they blame you and President Trump for the problems. I live in San Diego and have friends that work for the border patrol. The conditions at the border are no different now than they were during Obamas presidency. Perhaps a little more crowded, but the Immigrants that cross the border illegally are not doing without supplies. Keep up the great work

  10. The Dems are ignorant, bully, grandstanders who will get other Ignorant bullies to vote for them by their actions. We need a NEW party! It needs to be based strictly on the Constitution and to be backed by this NEW party a candidate MUST support and abide by term limits! WE need to vote the others…BOTH right and left (they are all the same anyway) OUT!!!

  11. Homan showed grace and steadiness. I would have exploded, if I were in his shoes, gave it to them unprofessionally. I would have said, you DEMS destruct and do nothing congress, you have a problem and avoid giving the proper solution to the problem. I would have, you are nothing but leaches. Do your job and legislate; but; leave the execution of the law on the books to us.

  12. THE DEMOCRATS ARE RUINING THIS COUNTRY.
    WE HAVE SOCOLIST TRYING TO TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO A SHIT HOLE.
    RADICAL MUSLIMS IN OUR POLITCAL SEATS!! THE REAL RACIST ARE THE LIBERAL THERE VILONET AND IF YOU EVEN TRY TO DEFEND YOUR IDEAS, THEY ATTACK YOU LIKE CORNERD ANIMAL. TRUMP 2020 AND ON!

  13. I wish he would have given that SOB the beating of his life. Let him know what an inhuman POS that he is!

  14. I agree with Mr Holman wholeheartedly. The attitude and line of questioning from Democrats was disgusting but typical theatrics. From Pelosi all the way to the lowest ranking Democrat are the most vile and disgusting people in the history of American politics. Mr Homan should have beat the piss out of all of them who insulted him.

  15. These Democrats are morons.They seem to think that with everything that there is a right way and a wrong way and their way which has to be right because it is their way

  16. Most of the Democrats are just simply ignorant. They make their decisions based on assumptions and hearsay. Many are not qualified to be in Congress,

  17. democrats will not fix it to solve the problem never vote democrat again get the out of washington

  18. SIR,
    WHEN I WAS IN THE SERVICE, I DEPLOYED THREE TIMES, TWICE TO VIETNAM AND THEN TO ALASKA. I THEN SPENT THIRTY YEARS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT.
    IN ALL THAT TIME I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ANY UNIFORMED OFFICER NOT DEFENDING THE FLAG.
    THE RECENT EPISODE OF OFFICERS NOT DEFENDING THE FLAG ESPECIALLY AGAINST PEOPLE WHO DISPLAYED A
    MEXICAN FLAG IS UNFORGIVABLE.
    I PITY THE MARINES (IF ANY WERE IN THE BUILDING)WHO DID NOT COME OUT TO DEFEND THIS COUNTRY AND FLAG.
    EVERYTHING I BELIEVE IN WAS SHATTERED THAT DAY. BY THOSE GUTLESS PANTY WAISTED MAGGOTS.

  19. The more these leftist, socialist, commie, do nothing Democrats attack hard working Americans at the border trying to do their best to deal with a problem created, and continued, by these very same Dimmocrats, it amazes me. The callousness, the haughty, harmful attitudes expressed by these cowardly, racist, anti-Semitic, infanticide-loving Democrats towards these hard-working Americans and the heroic efforts of the Trump Administration to secure the safety, resources and funding is hard to reconcile in the real world of the immigration crisis. Elijah clean up your rat-infested city of Baltimore and your corrupt foundation before you attack the border agents.

  20. These democratic make me sick to my stomach they are nothing but money grabbing sob that should never be in office they are so corrupt and racist them self I am so sick of them leftists they live in there Marchand with wall around them let the illegal move in with them carcia is the biggest racist most ignorant man I have ever herd most unprofessional it good thing he has never spoke to me or the rong person he would get his ass handed to him same with the others that acus other and have no idea of what really happening at the border

  21. These people crossing border illegally is committing a criminal act of war against the USA. There are people who went to our ambassadors and did paperwork and committed to America. These democrats protecting these illegals are slapping every one of them plus Americans born here in the face. Time democrats wake the fuck up and protect America and not the illegals. I am so disgusted with democrats and their disrespectful act against true Americans. I am not going to their country they coming and invading mine. But as I see it the democrats are refugees who by rights shouldn’t be allowed to run for any congress or government position. We have vets and children of our own country that are not taken care of. The children of America and vets should be taken care of first. It is a disgrace that democrats voted against helping them first but illegals in America they can’t do enough for . Time democrats get voted out permanently.

  22. DESPICIBLE DEMOCRATS, HOW DO THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT????

  23. I wish I had been Homan and would have gathered each one of them up by the collar and put them on a plane immediately and taken them to the border and given them an experience they wouldn’t forget. Put them in with those separated and also with those not separated so they can see the difference These are people with different situations but “illegal” is against the law. PERIOD!! Make each one accompany a member of the BP for a complete 24 hours (at least they will be “working” instead of sitting around talking about something they have no perception of).

  24. Democrats don’t care there the problem at the border if they would pass the bill and build the wall the border would get better help for taking care of these people and they would have to come through the entry ports instead of illigaly that they like and use to win there seats.

  25. The liberal congress is all talk, no substance. They just want publicity for themselves. They are looking and preparing for their own reelection. This is free publicity.
    I do not trust them at all.

  26. stupid dems and rhinos, also those 2 idiot moslems broads. if I were President, they would be gone by now.
    these border agents are doing the best they can under horrible conditions, that started with the dems.

  27. In actual fact the ICE guy was WAY too nice to the sub-human trash running the House. He should have told them to stuff it. They refuse to vote more funding or change the immigration laws to protect American citizens and then they throw accusations around like racism. They are despicable garbage not worth listening too, as are the idiots who voted them into office

  28. congress will not fix this because it’s trump. THAT SIMPLE

  29. A well deserved ‘VERBAL SPANKING” of the ULTRA-LIBERAL DEMOCRATS by MR. HOMAN…….i SO ENJOYED SEEING SOMEONE FINALLY tell these idiots off using TRUTH & FACTS!

  30. WHINY SNOT NOSED DEMOCRATS, who don’t know their ASS from a hole in the ground. It was the DEMOCRATS who did NOT approve FUNDING for the influx of illegals coming to our border. IT IS ALL THE FAULT OF DUMBOCRAPS.

  31. These men and women with CBP work endlessly to help these people. They bring their own children’s clothes, formula, diapers and etc. I know of 1 or 2 cases where pregnant women have had their babies in the toilets and left them to die. Agents who had been observing the people going in and out of the bathrooms noticed they were pregnant as they exited the bathroom. Agents went in to save these babies left to die! Disgusting idiots!!

  32. I’m a former Deportation Officer and I am not surprised how the Democrats are acting toward the present Administration. I’m glad I retired when I did. This Congress has a lot to offer to this country but is acting very, childess. I pray all Democrats in office will wake up and help our country become stronger and better, you could. actually gain some honor by getting behind the Greatest President ever. I’ m praying for all of you! Bible says to and remember, All Governments are allowed with God’s permission
    It’s what the people do to make it better or in this case it appears the Democrats are trying to take the USA down

    .

  33. The Democrates created this mess @ the southern border. They are blind to the real issues & then avoid taking responsibility for the solutions. All they want is a permanent lower class to be ordered to vote only 1 way, Democratic! Break our laws, invade our Country, & avoid reality!

    Grow up & get real people.
    Enough of this stupidity. Fix this mess instead of playing in the mud of your own making. Fix it & move on to running the country instead of wasting time, energy, & money
    while crying over a lost election.
    Grow up already!

  34. Every bill put forth the President has been bye partisan and he has refused to accept it at first, now Mc Connell just dosen t deliver them. What were Republicans doing a year ago when they had the Senate and house. Nothing. I don’t remember this site condemning them then. By the way, I’m neither party just tired of so many lies from the President and wishy washy ways it’s got to stop.

  35. I think the democrats a’re all about the show. They are always crying about one thing or another. The Democrats have too learn to put up or shut-up.. And as for the four plagues in office that are always crying about racism. They are the biggest racist in the country.

  36. IF THE DEMOCRATS CARE ABOUT THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHY THEY DON’T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND TAKE AS MANY THEY WANT EACH ONE TO THERE RESPONSIBILITY AND TAKE CARE OF THEM WHY WE AMERICANS WITH OUR TAX MONEY WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF THEM WHEN WE HAVE FELLOW AMERICANS DYING BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE SUFFICIENT MONEY TO FINISH THE MONTH AND HERE WE HAVE THE DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS FINDING EXCUSES TO NOT WORK WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP. THEY DON’T ADMIT HE IS DOING MORE THEN ANY PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA IN 3 YEARS HE IS IN OFFICE.

  37. Mr. Homan I think in the end realized that he just being made the whipping boy in the Democrat Show. He showed c lass and reserve something the others did not all they showed was politics. Keep doing the job you are sir.

  38. If the democrats would work with the president and ICE to solve the border crises they couldn’t cry and carry on like hysterics. Now that the Mueller report has cleared President of colluding with Russia to still the election in 2016 they had to find a new witch hunt to attack the president. The border crises is this new stick. They prove again that Trump Derangement syndrom is still running wild in the democratic party. No wonder their symbol is a jackass.

  39. All of the so called members of the dem. party needs a good old ass whipping

  40. The Democrats are so Stupid; “They Make A Doodle Bug Look Like A Mental Giant” And That Is Giving Them The Benefit Of The Doubt.

  41. Go get ’em Homan. They’ve (the congresspeople) gone way over the deep end and wouldn’t have the vaguest idea how to handle any problem, much less out of their offices. They need to shut their mouths and open the pocketbook for the illegals if they want to fix the “inhumane” problem!

  42. Dumb Democrats have s–t for brains!

  43. What makes these Democrats think they became god because they got elected. They are no better than anyone else period. They spend more time crying than actually trying to fix anything. I personally think they should all be force to stay at work till they actually fix something. They get no time off till we have a balanced budget the boarder is secured and all sanctuary cities are brought up on charges for ignoring our laws. this is for both Democrats an Republicans in the house.

  44. My only complaint is that he didn’t say enough and where were the folks supposed to be supporting this terrific guy. Why didn’t they step up?

  45. Dear Mr. Homan, excellent responses, beautiful self-control, thank you for all you do.

  46. Dems, and especially these two, who attacked Homan (and our honorable men and women of military, border patrol, and police) should be ashamed of themselves!!! They are sitting there doing absolutely nothing for American citizens, wasting taxpayers money and attacking our President and Law Enforcement

  47. HOMAN WAS RIGHT, THE WHINEY LEFTIST CONGRESS (brats) are WRONG AGAIN, AS USUAL. How dare those leftist liberal traitors accuse HOMAN about “not caring for the children, illegal immigrants”, etc. When it’s these miserable DEMOCRATS who WON’T give a dime nor sensible legislation to a dire desperate problem which (like ALL leftist liberals) ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR! I think I would like to meet these clueless idiots “out in the parking lot” to settle our differences. And, just for the matter of record, illegal immigrants are that . . . I-L-L-E-G-A-L, need to be arrested, sentenced to hard labor and SENT HOME empty handed. I don’t want a SINGLE DIME of MY hard earned tax dollars supporting theses illegal immigrant BUMS looking for a free handout . . . Trump and his allies 2020.

  48. Homan is correct. The congress is the body that is remiss” first in not reinforcing border security and second after the border was breached so badly for so long, they would not allow funds to handle the people who invaded our country.

  49. All those whiny Socialist/Liberal/Demwits berating Homan for the treatment of detainees at the border facilities, should feel free to take 10 to 20 of those suffering illegals home with them where they can partake and claim the bounties of the table, funds, and living facilities that no doubt will be provided free of charge to the illegals to ease their pain and suffering!

  50. 100% agree with what Homan said. Remember that both parties have had chances to FIX this problem. GET DONE

  51. They’re illegals !!!

  52. These Democrats have lost their minds since President Trump was elected and all of their refusals to admit the Crisis at the Border and refusing to fund the agents to provide more facilities, etc. say a lot. I applaud Tom Homan for standing up to them. Tlaub crying is such a farce and definitely staged. Anything to create drama. Plus they have shown the American people that they care more for illegal aliens than they do about natural citizens. What a disgrace they are. I only pray that they are not re-elected and that the House is turned back to the Republicans as well as the Senate and that the left-wing Republicans don’t continue their attacks on their own party.

  53. Mr. Homan has far more self-control than I would have had under the circumstances, having to deal with those Democrat/CPUSA demagogues.

  54. It’s a shame that Mr. Homan didn’t give Connelly a whipping ,but Republicans don’t do that ,even though he (Connelly) deserved it. The Democratic Congresspeople actually believe they are better than We the People, instead of being our representatives.

  55. Jerry Connelly is a total jerk and has no idea of what he is talking about. This jerk needs not only to be voted out of office but run out of town. His lies and carrying on of untruths need to stop. I dare him to live on the border of Texas for a year.

  56. The damned Demoncrats caused this problem.They were the one’s that wouldn’t close the borders!

  57. The damned Demoncrats caused this problem.They were the one’s that wouldn’t close the borders!

  58. I agree with Homan demorats r the most useless shiftless pos’s in government send them all bac before we don’t even have a country.

  59. So glad someone FINALLY stood up to and put those demon children in their place! All right thinking, law abiding Americans applaud you! Thank you for your courage! God speed!

  60. I, for one, am in total agreement with Mr. Tom Homan. It’s about time someone has the wherewithal to push back on the crazy, sick democrats. He took as much verbal abuse as he could stand. I applaud him, and respect him for doing so. The Democrats blaming Trump and the Border Patrol for what is wrong with the southern border of our Country. When, in fact, that belongs on the Democrats who absolutely refused to help in any way, whether it is beds for the illegal immigrants, food, etc. Pelosi and her sick cronies are the RACISTS ones, as they have no compassion, no heart and soul and only care about getting that God Almighty vote. The illegals were treated respectfully and their children were treated well by the Border Patrol not by the Democrats. The American Hating and God Hating Democrats are responsible for all of this. It’s on their shoulders, not Trump’s nor the Border Patrol. Again, I applaud Mr. Homan for his control in dealing with these idiots. Way to go Mr. Homan! You took the high road, the Demos as usual took the lowest road in the world. A PS if you will. If you want to know what a true American in all ways, look no farther than Mr.
    Homan.
