ICE acting director Thomas Homan slammed Democratic California Rep. Nanette Barragan Tuesday for saying that his organization was “anti-immigrant.”


“First of all no one on this panel is anti-immigrant,” Homan said. “We’re law enforcement officers enforcing laws that you all enacted. So to sit there and say we’re anti-immigrant is wrong. We are enforcing laws. If you think it’s okay to enter this country illegally, shouldn’t be arrested, that’s just wrong.” (RELATED: Democrat Congresswoman Calls ICE The Gestapo Of America)

“That laws clearly state–you enter the country illegally is a crime. And no one’s up here saying all illegal aliens are criminals–a certain percentage of them are criminals, they commit yet another offense after they’re here. I have said many times 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, Congress.”
