ICE chief has ‘zero regrets’ about saying illegal immigrants ‘should be afraid’ – here’s why

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan defended his saying last week that illegal immigrants “should be afraid,” but CNN buried his justification based on humanitarian grounds in their article Friday.


Homan had made the comments before Congress last week, but expanded on why he said what many might find controversial.


“It needed to be said,” Homan explained. “And by me saying you should be worried, you should be afraid — if you lie on your taxes, you’ve got to be worried, ‘Is the IRS going to audit me?’ … When you speed down the highway, you’ve got to worry, ‘Am I going to get a speeding ticket?’ You worry. It’s natural human behavior.”


But he also explained that he had seen many terrible horrors as the result of lax immigration enforcement, and by enforcing the law in a strict manner, those evils could be prevented.


“Why am I so strong in what I’m trying to do?” Homan said. “Because people haven’t seen what Tom Homan’s seen … They haven’t seen the dead immigrants on a trail that were left stranded. They weren’t in Phoenix, Arizona when these organizations were holding people hostage, raping the women, molesting the children, killing people that couldn’t pay their smuggling fees, doubling their smuggling fees after they got to the United States.” 


“People weren’t standing with me in Victoria, Texas, in the back of a tractor trailer with 19 dead aliens including a five-year-old child laying dead under his father that suffocated in the back of this tractor trailer by these smuggling organizations,” he challenged.


CNN only added this humanitarian reasoning in the last of their 17-paragraph article.


Even illegal immigration advocate and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos admitted that the precipitous drop in illegal immigration meant that fewer migrants would make the dangerous trek to the United States, preventing many tragedies.


Homan also dismantled the oft-used argument that strict immigration policies break up families.


“The constant story about us separating families,” he explained, “when someone enters this country illegally, or someone overstays their visa, they know they’re in this country illegally. If they take it upon themselves to have a child in this country and becomes a US citizen by birth, he put his family in that position, not ICE, not Border Patrol. And to vilify the men and women of ICE as separating families is unfair.”


Homan continued to argue that when local authorities impose “sanctuary city” policies, they force ICE to sweep illegal aliens at their homes and other places. These actions are then falsely reported as raids to vilify immigration enforcement.


“Is ICE putting the fear in the community or is it other people putting fear in the community?” Homan said. “The false stories out there (are) what’s sending the chill down the spine of the immigrant community. If I had the cooperation I needed, most of these arrests could be made in a county jail.”


ICE has reported an unprecedented drop in illegal border crossings, while arrests have increased considerably since President Trump entered the Oval Office.


Immigration and Customs Enforcementsaid it has arrested about 41,000 people since late January and April of this year, about a 37 percent increase from the 30,000 arrested during the same period last year. (May 14, 2017)
