The former chief of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency slammed Sen. Kamala Harris Thursday night after she viciously drew parallels between the federal law enforcement department and the Ku Klux Klan.
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.”

VICIOUS: Sen. Harris Compares ICE to the KKK During Congressional Hearing
Firebrand Senator Kamala Harris raised eyebrows throughout the United States during congressional hearings this week; 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.

ABOLISH ICE? 160 Illegal Immigrants ARRESTED at a SINGLE FACTORY in Texas
At least 160 undocumented workers were detained by ICE agents during a massive sweep this week, with federal officers confirming the illegal immigrants were apprehended at a trailer factory in Texas.
According to ABC News, the “immigration bust” occurred at Load Trail, a trailer manufacturing company with previous violations for hiring undocumented migrants at its Texas facility approximately 100 miles east of Dallas.
“I know I just heard helicopters everywhere and I saw a whole lot of people running and so I turned to run and the first corner I hit I got guns drawn down on me,” said one eyewitness.
“I knew these were clearly illegals. This is not the way we are supposed to be hiring,” said Katrina Berger, the DHS specialist in charge of the sweep. “They told me to keep doing my job — that if they were visited by ICE again, they would simply pay the fine and go on.”
“We’re watching and we’re coming,” she added. “Businesses that knowingly hire illegal aliens create an unfair advantage over their competing businesses.”
