ICE Chief: NY Democrat Should Say “Thank You” for Arresting Criminal Aliens

In a wide-ranging appearance at the National Press Club this week, the outspoken acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement said that his agency was busy implementing President Trump’s agenda, enforcing the law, and turning up the heat on criminal aliens who don’t belong in the United States. The retiring Thomas Homan, who will be missed more than most who leave the Trump administration, told event host Jessica Vaughan that he had no apologies for critics of ICE. In fact, he said, Democrats should focus more on changing laws they don’t like and less on bashing law enforcement officers sworn to uphold that law.

“We’ve increased worksite enforcement by over 300 percent,” Homan said on Tuesday. “We’re not only going to continue conducting criminal investigations of employers where we have evidence of criminal behavior. We’re doing the audits and we are arresting illegal employees.”

Homan said it was at least as important to crack down on employers skirting the law as it was to apply direct enforcement to illegal immigrants.

“It’s not just employing an illegal alien,” he said. “There is tax fraud going on. Employers aren’t paying their taxes. There is identity theft going on. A lot of these illegal immigrants are using the Social Security numbers of U.S. citizens. There is identity theft. There is tax fraud. There is trafficking. So, there is a criminal aspect to worksite enforcement people don’t understand.”

Homan directed his ire at Democrats who insist on demonizing the men and women who put their lives at risk to keep American communities safer. He noted that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sent ICE a “cease and desist” letter in April telling Homan to “direct your agents operating in New York to follow the clear constitutional requirements attendant to searches and arrests.”

Cuomo ended the letter with a legal threat: “If you fail to do so,” he wrote, “I will explore and pursue all available legal recourse, taking any such action that is necessary to protect the rights and safety of all New Yorkers.”

Homan said he’d heard it all before. “Last year,” he said, we arrested nearly 5,000 criminal aliens off the streets of New York. Rather than a cease and desist letter, a letter of thank you would be appreciated.”

It still baffles us that Democrats think it is an act of patriotism to stand with criminal illegal immigrants instead of the men and women of law enforcement. And it’s even MORE baffling that they believe this is a winning political stance, regardless of how confused they are about the moral and ethical implications.

It’s a shame that Homan is retiring, because he’s far and away one of our favorite members of this administration. His agency has done an exceptional job in the Trump era and he will be missed greatly.

  2. WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES TO VOTE OUT COME NOV 2018,THE ENTIRE LYING CORRUPT, TREASONOUS, DEMOCRAT PARTY, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT END THE WASHINGTON PEDOPHILE CARTELS

  3. Cuomo and the democrats in general don’t give a rat’s ass about the illegal immigrants. They only need the illegals for their (illegal) votes, it’s their grand plan to get their scumbag candidates in power.

  4. For eight very long years all we heard form obama’s Socialist Regime is the same old song about Immigration Reform. How the laws were outdated and how they needed to be changed.
    The last thing we need are more laws. Here’s a thought how about we let guys like Thomas Homan do their jobs instead of trying to block their efforts at every turn.
    If you cross the boarder of the United States without being invited you are breaking the law. This does not make you an undocumented worker, this makes you an Illegal Alien, a Criminal and as such you are subject to arrest. Now I am not a lawyer but if I am not mistaken this is the way laws are structured. If you go against a law that is currently on the books you are a criminal and subject to arrest. Just why is that so hard for the Democrats to understand.

  5. Democrats says it OK for any illegal or radical to commit crimes and not be punished including rapping small girls, assaulting our elderly and murdering anyone when they wish to and in the name of sanctuary cities.

    A lot of these illegal immigrants are using the Social Security numbers of U.S. citizens. There is identity theft. There is tax fraud. There is trafficking.

    Democrats think it is an act of patriotism to stand with criminal illegal immigrants instead of the men and women of law enforcement or the true American people.

  6. My thought: if employers are caught with hiring illegals, then these employers should be arrested also. just saying
    GO TRUMP & GO ICE.
