FLASHBACK: Senator Kamala Harris raised eyebrows throughout the United States during congressional hearings in 2018; viciously drawing parallels between the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency and the Ku Klux Klan.
Harris was questioning Ronald Vitiello Thursday during his confirmation process to lead the agency when she asked him to weigh-in on another “domestic terrorist” organization.
Democrat Senator Kamala Harris compares ICE to the KKK and appears to suggest that they are a terrorist group during a Senate hearing to consider the nomination of Ronald Vitello to be the director of ICE.

“Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels [with the KKK]? she asked.
“I do not see any parallels,” Vitiello fired-back. “That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK.”
“Are you aware that there is a perception that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation, particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America?” pressed Harris.

EX-ICE BOSS ON HANNITY: Kamala Harris Should Apologize for ‘DISGUSTING’ KKK Comparison
Former ICE Director Tom Homan stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on Sen. Kamala Harris’ recent comments comparing federal immigration agents to the KKK; saying she should be “ashamed” for her “disgusting” remarks.
“First of all, what Kamala Harris did was disgusting. She compared the 20,000 men and women of ICE, the same men and women that strap a gun to their hip and defend this nation; to compare them to such a hate group is just disgusting,” said Homan.
“For her, as a US Senator, to make that comparison… she failed the American people. ICE is enforcing the law that Congress enacted. They’re not making this up. Shame on her,” he added.

FORMER ICE CHIEF: ‘I wanted to THROW UP’ After Kamala Harris Compared Agency to KKK

Former acting director Thomas Homan was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on Harris’ bizarre remarks; saying “I don’t think an apology would even be accepted at this point.”
“I wanted to throw up. She and me disagree on a lot of things. What she did today, I don’t think an apology would even be accepted at this point,” Homan told Fox News Thursday night. “What she did was disgusting. She put her political ambition to be president ahead of the truth and ahead of the dignity of the men and women who serve this country.”
