ICE Director Rips Into Pelosi for Her Attacks on Police Arresting Criminals: 'How Dare You Call Them Cowardly'
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 😀 (ICE) acting Director Thomas Homan blasted Democrats and their allies in California on Tuesday for trying to ignore federal immigration law and for their attacks on law enforcement.
Homan was also asked for his reaction to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saying his department is trying to inflict terror within immigrant communities.
“Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly called Mr. Trump's enforcement efforts 'cowardly.' That's her words. I would like your reaction to it,” Fox Business host Stuart Varney said.
“Well, not only did she say they were cowardly, she said that ICE was terrorizing immigrant communities,” Homan replied. "First of all, you're talking about law enforcement officers. These are men and women that put their lives on the line for this country every day. They strap a gun to their hip and leave the safety and security of their homes to defend this nation.
“So how dare you call them cowardly and to say that we're terrorizing immigrant communities,” he added.
Homan further said they were removing people who had committed egregious crimes.
“The people we arrested during these California operations, lewd and lascivious acts with a juvenile, assault with deadly weapons, murder; these people were terrorizing immigrant communities. ICE went in there and removed these people from the community, so that's far from terrorizing,” he said. “We're protecting people, we're protecting the American public.”
