A Democratic lawmaker claimed during a congressional hearing that illegal immigration is not a crime, but rather a civil offense, prompting the former chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to tell him otherwise.
The House Homeland Security Committee held a hearing about the Migrant Protection Protocols, a program launched by the Trump administration in January, and how it has affected those seeking asylum in the United States. Numerous Democrats blasted the program, and criticized the Trump administration’s overall approach to managing the immigration crisis.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The interesting thing about your argument is that these people committed no crimes,” Green said to Homan, speaking about people who lodge an asylum claim after entering the country without proper authorization.
