Ocasio-Cortez Tries To Grill Former ICE Director Tom Homan And Gets Shredded For It

0 8,888

Former ICE Director Thomas Homan took Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to the proverbial woodshed. She was left literally speechless and dithering Friday during a congressional hearing after she tried to grill him about immigration-related policies. What she was trying to do was trap him and instead trapped herself. Typical and predictable.

“It says the official recommendation, there were three different options presented, the third included the option for family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez stated. “This initiative would pursue prosecution of all amenable adults including those presenting with a family unit. Mr. Homan, your name is on this, is this correct?” Ocasio-Cortez asked. That was when the fun started.

“Yes, I signed that memo,” Homan stiffly replied.

“So, you are the author of the family separation policy?” Ocasio-Cortez enquired.

“I’m not the author of this memo,” Homan replied.

“You’re not the author, but you signed the memo?” Ocasio-Cortez pushed.

“Yes, a zero tolerance memo,” Homan responded.

“So, you provided the official recommendation to Secretary Neilson on families for the United States to pursue family separation?” Ocasio-Cortez went on.

“I gave Secretary Nielson numerous recommendations on how to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“But it says here that you, you gave her numerous options but the recommendation was option three, family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“What I’m saying this is not the only paper where we had given the secretary numerous options to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.

“And so the recommendation of the many that you recommended, you recommended family separations?” Ocasio-Cortez continued, acting confused by his previous responses.

“I recommended zero tolerance,” Homan said.

“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.

“The same as is whatever U.S. citizen parent gets arrested when they’re with a child,” Homan said.

“Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated children from their parents,” Ocasio-Cortez went on sounding even more perplexed.

“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m gonna be separated,” Homan responded. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from their family.”

“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Well, they should be because they are in effect, breaking the law. The majority are not asylum seekers as she would have you believe.

“When you’re in the country illegally, it’s a violation 8 United States Code 13:25,” Homan responded.

“Seeking asylum is legal,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“If you want to seek asylum you go through the port of entry, you do it the legal way,” Homan shot back. “The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”

At that point, the young Marxist was speechless and moved on to harass other people. That is extremely arrogant and shows just how clueless she is and/or dishonest.

I love what Benny Johnson tweeted:

Unprepared @AOC tries to come at Former ICE Director Thomas Homan.
She gets eviscerated.
It’s unfair.
It’s hard to watch.
Total savage flex by Homan at the end.
AOC *literally* left speechless.
I’ve never see a member get more completely & embarrassingly destroyed.”

Yes, it was magnificent and well-deserved. The brutal fact is that if you commit a crime and have a child with you, the child should be removed. Illegal immigrants are breaking the law and therefore should be separated from their children until it is resolved – preferably with the whole family being deported. Come here the right way… legally… or don’t come at all.

That is just the stark truth of the matter as I see it. Zero tolerance should apply to all those who break the law. If you pick and choose who is punished for breaking the law, you no longer have any laws that are valid… you have anarchy. Which is pretty much what the left wants.
