The former head of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency praised President Trump’s fierce crackdown on illegal immigration Wednesday, saying no president “has done more” to help secure America’s borders.
“I respect every president I ever worked for. No president has done more for border security and law enforcement than President Trump,” said former ICE director Tom Homan. “The first year he was in office, and we were out there enforcing law the way we’re supposed to because he allowed us to through his executive actions.”
“The number of illegal border crossers dropped [from a] 40 to a 45-year low. A four-decade low. That’s not a coincidence. That’s because this president let ICE and the border patrol do their job,” he added.
Homan has worked at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency under six different administrations.

IT BEGINS: Brick Thrown Through Republican Party HQ Window, ‘ABOLISH ICE’ Graffiti Left
Unidentified assailants smashed the windows of the Nebraska Republican Party Headquarters in Lincoln late Monday night; spray-painting the words “abolish ICE” beneath the damaged building.
According to the Daily Caller, “vandals” destroyed the GOP’s windows in protest of the President’s harsh crackdown on illegal immigration, with the party’s executive director confirming local police are actively investigating the incident.
“This destructive criminal activity is disappointing, but unsurprising, given the increasingly radical rhetoric of national Democrat leaders and candidates like Jane Raybould, Kara Eastman, and Jane Kleeb. Violence is the natural result of the Left’s statements urging Democrats to literally ‘push back’ on Republicans and ‘resist’ at any cost,” the Director told the Daily Caller. “Voters face a stark choice between sanity and the rabid, hateful words that sparked this vandalism.”
The incident comes just days after Rep. Maxine Waters urged her supporters to confront Trump officials at “restaurants” and “gasoline stations” to protest the President’s immigration policies.

IT BEGINS: Dem Introduces Bill to ‘ABOLISH ICE,’ Calls Trump ‘WHITE NATIONALIST’
A Democratic congressman introduced legislation to officially “abolish” the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency this week, saying “heartless” ICE agents are “ripping at the moral fabric of our nation.”
Rep Mark. Pocan of Wisconsin sponsored the left-wing bill just days after President Trump signed an executive order ending “family separations” along the US-Mexico border, saying the agency fails to “represent the values” of America.
“ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation,” said Pocan. “Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively.”
“The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect,” he added.
