Former acting ICE boss Tom Homan didn’t mince words while speaking with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during Wednesday’s fiery hearings on immigration at the US-Mexico border; demanding the liberal lawmaker “do her job.”
“In my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life that you want to abolish them rather than do your job and legislate,” said Homan.
“Your time is expired,” fired-back AOC, slamming her gavel.

The United States Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration Wednesday; allowing the White House to impose new restrictions on asylum applicants as more legal cases are decided in the lower courts.
“The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the Trump administration to bar most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States, while the legal fight plays out in the courts,” reports the New York Times.
“The Supreme Court, in a brief, unsigned order, said the administration may enforce new rules that generally forbid asylum applications from migrants who have traveled through another country on their way to the United States without being denied asylum in that country.
The vote was 7-2, with liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissenting the decision, writing “Once again, the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”
The case will likely return to the Supreme Court for a final decision later this year.

BREAKING: Former ICE Boss Tom Homan Named ‘BORDER CZAR’ by Trump Administration
Former ICE chief Thomas Homan was officially named President Trump’s ‘Border Czar’ Friday morning as part of the administration’s renewed efforts to crackdown on illegal immigration pouring into the United States.
“Tom Homan’s coming back, I would say that would be announced next week except I’d rather announce it now,” Trump said in an interview with “Fox and Friends.” “He’s going to be very much involved with the border, that’s what he really wants to be involved with.”
“He’ll be a border czar, he’ll be very much involved in the border, he’ll be directly reporting to me, working out of the White House but spending a lot of time at the border,” Trump said. “He’s a good man, he’s a good man.”
“God help us if another tragedy falls upon us because Democratic leaders in Congress want to play politics with our safety and are blinded by their drive to see our president fail,” Homan said during a recent interview. “No one should want our president to fail. His success is America’s success.”
Homan slammed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez last January; saying “every time she opens her mouth she’s wrong” after the Democratic-Socialist viciously attacked federal immigration agents.
“The President should be defending why we are funding such an agency at all, because right now what we’re seeing is death,” claimed Cortez Tuesday evening.
“It’s incredible,” said Homan. “Every time she opens her mouth she’s wrong. She needs to do her homework. First of all, no child died in ICE agency… If you want to blame somebody for deaths in custody, blame Democrats who refuse to close these loopholes.”
“She ought to be saying thank you. She’s from New York. ICE agents have arrested and removed thousands of criminals from the state of New York,” he added.

BACKLASH BUILDS: US Officials, Agents Push Back Against AOC, Say She’s ‘Misinforming’ the Public
US officials and border agents pushed-back against Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments regarding immigration detention centers Tuesday; saying the congresswoman is intentionally “misinforming” the American public.
“They are not drinking out of the toilet—no Border Patrol agent is going to make anyone drink out of the toilet,” former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. “It’s just ridiculous on its face.”
“She’s lost all credibility,” he said.
“You’re drinking out of the same apparatus, the same piece of equipment, but there are two separate water lines—one going to the commode, one going to the sink,” Homan explained. “… [T]hey are designed that way to try to save space and make it more comfortable for the people who are in those facilities.”
This was in fact the type of toilet we saw in the cell.
Except there was just one, and the sink portion was not functioning – @AyannaPressley smartly tried to open the faucet, and nothing came out.
So the women were told they could drink out of the bowl. https://t.co/rcu9Rt6B2x

“In that last facility, I was not safe from the officers in that facility,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez fired-off at Border Patrol Agents Tuesday morning; saying members of the CBP were “disrespectful” during her congressional tour of migrant detention facilities.
“I can’t understate how disturbing it was that CBP officers were openly disrespectful of the Congressional tour,” posted AOC on social media. “If officers felt comfortable violating agreements in front of their *own* management & superiors, that tells us the agency has lost all control of their own officers.”

“And now CBP is pushing easily disprovable lies about members of Congress. Truly nuts. And to think this week the GOP & Dem ‘Problem Solvers Caucus’ fought to eliminate ALL accountability amendments from funding. They just wrote a multi-billion dollar blank check for misconduct,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Concentration Camp’ comments Thursday; telling reporters the Republican Party is running a “torture project” along the US-Mexico border.
