ICE Director Exposes the Hypocrisy of Democrats in Congress Trying to Block His Agency

By

The hypocrisy of liberal Democrats has never been so exposed as it is under President Trump.

Case in point: Democrats are huffing and puffing about alleged violations of electoral laws during the last presidential race, but this week were busy bashing the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for, well, enforcing laws that DEMOCRATS helped put in place.

ICE chief Thomas Homan was dragged before the House Homeland Security subcommittee, where his agency was berated by Democrats on the panel.

Leading the charge was Rep. Nanette Barragan (D-CA), who echoed popular liberal sentiment that accuses Trump of racism for ordering ICE and similar agencies to finally start enforcing the immigration laws of this country.

“It makes me sick to my stomach to keep hearing over and over again, painting the broad stroke and the picture as though these are folks who are coming here to do harm,” crowed Barragan, completely ignoring the fact that the people she’s defending have broken US laws, and like any person in this country, must be held accountable.

Homan was having none of it, telling Barragan:

“First of all, no one on this panel is anti-immigrant. We’re law enforcement officers enforcing the laws that you all enacted.

“So to sit there and say that we’re anti-immigrant is wrong. We are enforcing laws. If you think it’s OK to enter this country illegally — you shouldn’t be arrested — that’s just wrong. The laws clearly state, ‘You enter here illegally, it is a crime.’

“I have said many times that I certainly understand the plight of these people and I feel bad for some of these people, but I have a job to do. I have to enforce the law and uphold the oath I took to enact the laws enacted by you in Congress.”

Democrats seem to want to have their cake and eat it, too.

They helped to enact these immigration laws when it was politically expedient to do so (like under Bill Clinton), but now howl over their enforcement merely because the one doing the enforcing is Trump.
