Retired ICE Chief: “No One Has Done More For Border Security Than Donald Trump”
Thomas Homan stepped down from his post as acting Chief for immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE]. During his long career, Homan has served several sitting U.S. Presidents going back to Ronald Reagan. He now passes the torch to Ronald D. Vitiello.
Homan shared his experience, of working with the current President and those before him, with The Washington Examiner reporter, Anna Giaritelli. With his head held high, Homan, discussed accomplishments and concerns he has for the future.
According to the article, Trump’s action mandated ICE carry out all existing immigration laws whereas former President Barack Obama had instructed ICE to prioritize who it went after.
“It’s just a fact that our sitting president of one year has made a big difference,” he said. “I’ve worked for six presidents. I started with Ronald Reagan … No one has done more for border [safety], public safety, and law enforcement than President Trump.”
The 34-year law enforcement veteran’s departure comes just as some Democratic lawmakers and political candidates have escalated calls to abolish ICE.
Before leaving, Homan also sent a strong message to Democrats:
As Reported By The Hill:
The problem is only exacerbated by certain Democrats’ call to abolish ICE, he adds.
“It’s insulting that a member of Congress would say ‘abolish ICE’ when we’re enforcing the laws that Congress enacted. They give us a set of laws that we’re supposed to enforce and they give me the money to do it, then say ‘abolish ICE,'” Homan explained. “We’re doing what you told us to do.”
Furthermore, Congress is not giving President Trump the necessary funding for ICE agents to do their job to the best of their ability.
“I would like President Trump to work with Congress to get our needed resources. We need money to do our job,” Homan told the Washington Examiner. “The president has tried. He talked about giving us 10,000 more officers. We haven’t seen that happen yet because Congress hasn’t funded it.”
