Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan was incensed when Rep. Jesús “Chuy” García (D-IL) accused him of not caring about illegal immigrant children and let the leftist know just how he felt in front of everyone. In fact, Homan was sorely tempted and considered giving the man a beat-down. Not kidding and I think we all understand just how he feels at this point.
“If you notice, I hesitated a minute before I started yelling? Because I actually think about getting up and throwing that man a beating right there in the middle of the room because when you tell somebody that’s spent their career saving lives that I don’t care about dying children and I’m a racist, that’s where I broke and that’s where I had enough,” Homan told Fox News on Monday. I don’t blame him in the least.
Garcia had the nerve to accuse the former ICE chief of not caring about illegal immigrant children “because these children don’t look like children that are around you. How can you possibly allow this to happen under your watch? Is it because these children don’t look like children that are around you?” García asked, adding, “Have you ever held a deceased child in your arms?” That tore it for Homan.
A visibly angered Homan fired back at Garcia: “First of all, your comments are disgusting! I’ve served my country for 34 years and yes, I held a five-year-old boy in my arms … and I knelt down beside him and said a prayer for him because I knew what his last 30 minutes of his life were like,” he added. “No one has experienced what I’ve experienced. I saw many dead bodies coming across this border.”

Garcia has not had the spine to respond since the confrontation at the hearing. But he does keep sniping at President Trump on Twitter. The label ‘coward’ comes to mind here. He keeps calling Trump “racist and divisive” and is calling on him to “stop criminalizing desperation” amid the left-wing push for open borders.
From The Epoch Times:
“Homan and multiple Democrat representatives got into testy exchanges during the hearing.
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tried questioning Homan about a memo Homan signed while head of ICE recommending “zero tolerence” on the border crisis.
“I recommended zero tolerance,” Homan told the lawmaker after a back-and-forth.
“Which includes family separation,” she countered.
“The same as it is with every U.S. citizen parent that gets arrested with a child,” Homan quickly replied.

“Ocasio-Cortez went quiet for a few seconds, before saying, “Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated children from their… .”
“Interrupting, Homan replied, “If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m gonna be separated.”
“When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his home,” he added.
“Ocasio-Cortez replied, “Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime.”
“Before she had finished the sentence, Homan responded, “When you’re in this country illegally, it’s violation 8, United States Code 1325.”
“Seeking asylum is legal,” she claimed.
“If you want to seek asylum, you go through a port of entry,” he responded. “Do it the legal way. The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”
“Homan told Fox that Democrats kept making false statements and accusations and would interrupt him when he tried to respond.
“He said the hearing was “political theater.”
“They didn’t want to hear the truth. They wanted to push their narrative and not let me speak,” he said.
“They wanted me to get up and walk out and I wasn’t gonna give that to them.”’

Garcia was far from alone in acting disgracefully towards Homan:
“At one point, Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly accused Homan of allowing migrants to be treated like ‘subhumans’ by ICE agents and said they handled these people with ‘hardly human care.’
“‘Is there no limit to what you will justify in this administration when it comes to the mistreatment of our fellow human beings, and do you have no shame about the fact, as our colleague said this morning, it’s all done in the shadow of the American flag?’ Connolly asked.
“Homan interrupted to say he did not appreciate the characterization and was ‘extremely frustrated’ by the language used.
“Connolly said he didn’t care.
“‘You’re not at the border right now!’ he said. ‘You’re in a hearing room. It’s my time.'”
I admire Homan for his stance here. He bravely stood on his principles and let them have it and it was epic. More conservatives should have the nerve to stand up like this and put some feeling into fighting back against these communists.
“If you don’t like this, do your job. Fix it,” Homan told lawmakers. Exactly… do your damn jobs already.
Homan said he was invited to the hearing by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and was hoping to “tell the truth” about the situation at the border. “The media controls everything. Other than Fox News, I don’t know anyone else that wants to educate the American people about what’s actually happening at that border.” And that’s the crux of the matter, isn’t it? These faux congressional hearings are little more than kangaroo courts featuring nothing more than leftist grandstanding. Pathetic. And the propagandic media twists it ever leftward.
I don’t condone violence but a good old-fashioned beat-down is certainly what a number of these communists deserve.

VIDEO: Rashida Tlaib: Dems Discussing Arresting Trump Officials
It’s crystal clear..that the left should never ever be allowed into our government. These are dangerous folks.
Maybe Rashida should be arrested for her connections to Islamic terrorists. The fact that this woman is in our government…is despicable!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated on Tuesday that House Democrats were discussing behind closed doors how to arrest the members of President Donald Trump’s administration who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
“Let me tell you, this is pretty — and this is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib said during a town hall meeting. “So they’re trying to figure out — no joke — they’re trying to figure out, ‘Well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?’ No, no.”
“What are we hoping? I mean, I’m not in those kinds of conversations, but I’m asking, like, you know, what happens? And they’re like, ‘Well, Rashida, we’re trying to figure it out ourselves because this is uncharted territory,’” she continued. “No, I’m telling you that they’re trying to be like, ‘Well, where are we going to put them? Where are we going to hold them?’ No, I mean those are the kinds of things they’re trying to tread carefully.”

Accordingly, in an escalating effort to force White House officials comply with congressional subpoenas, House Democrats have reportedly been reexamining holding those members of the administration in inherent contempt — a power that the legislature has not used since 1935.
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) explains that inherent contempt is the oldest of three strategies that Congress can use to enforce subpoenas. According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank:
“Since 1935, Congress has relied on the executive and judicial branches when people refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas. This practice makes sense: if Congress cannot get the information it needs on its own authority, then it can rely on the authority of the other branches of government. However, there is another option. Instead of turning to another branch, Congress can legally imprison or fine individuals who refuse to comply.”
Tlaib incorrectly suggested that the process could be enforced by the Washington, D.C. Police Department — the procedure actually only involves the chamber that is concerned. Following a contempt citation, the individual is arrested by the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms, and subsequently brought to the floor for punishment, which may include imprisonment.
