Thomas Homan acting ICE director

Acting ICE Director Praises Trump's Law And Order Policy

"We're enforcing the law without apology."


Thomas Homan, the Acting Director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, appeared, on Fox News’ Wednesday episode of “Your World with Neil Cavuto” where he talked with the host about the changes that have taken place from the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama to the current administration under President Donald Trump on the issue of law enforcement of criminal illegal immigrant activity. 

Homan discussed the crackdown on violent gangs like MS-13. He said, “We prioritize the action on MS-13.” He added, “We’re doubling down our efforts on MS-13. We’re going to attack from two different angles. If they can face criminal charges, we’re going to arrest them on criminal charges. We’ll make sure they serve time in prison or jail.” He went on to say if any gang members are in the United States illegally, they will be deported back to their nation of origin.

Cavuto asked how MS-13 was able to spread so quickly to become a nationwide threat.

Homan explained, “They victimize the very communities they live in, so they have spread. They got our attention. They’ve got law enforcement attention all across the country.” He said, We’re coming after them very hard.”

He went on, “We prioritize what we do, whether they’re a threat to the public or national security.”

Homan then seemingly praised the Trump Administration for their efforts in cracking down on crimes. “[What President Trump has done] is he basically told the Border Patrol agents and the 20,000 American patriots that work for ICE you can now do your job, you will enforce laws on your books. There's no population of alien that's off the table anymore and we've been waiting on that for a decade now." He added, “I’ve made it clear, when you enter the country illegally you’ve committed a crime.”

He said to those criminal illegal immigrants who are looking for a free ride, “ We are going to enforce the law without apology.”
