Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib and former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chief Thomas Homan traded barbs on Wednesday after the freshman lawmaker attacked his tenure atop the agency.
The House Oversight and Reform committee held a hearing Wednesday regarding the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and its “medical action deferment” program. The program allows illegal immigrants suffering from deadly illnesses to avoid deportation if they are receiving life-saving treatment not available in their home countries.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Mr. Homan, as a fellow American I just want you to know, your contribution as acting director of ICE under this administration will always be remembered as one that was very ruthless and inhumane treatment of asylum seekers,” Tlaib said Wednesday during her closing remarks.
“I’m deeply troubled by your opening statement and continued assault on innocent lives, and I ask that this administration please stop playing politics with the lives of the children before this committee, but also with the lives of many Americans that are directly impacted by the continued broken immigration system in our country,” the Michigan congresswoman said.
“Let’s be frank on what ICE does,” Homan was eventually able to respond. “ICE last year took [enough] opioids off the street of this country that could have killed every man, woman and child in the United States twice. They’ve arrested thousands of sexual predators that preyed on children. They rescued thousands of children who were victims of predators. They’ve arrested hundreds of women who were victims of sex trafficking. I am proud of the agency and ICE.”
