Ex-ICE chief Homan delivers a fiery defense of border agents at the hearing, rips lawmakers.
First, ICE Director Thomas Homan took out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, then he goes with no holds barred on Rep. Chuy Garcia who basically had called him an evil racist.
It is time to tell the do-nothing Democrat representatives and senators to do the job of governing. That job includes defending the U.S. as they all swore to do in their oaths of office.

Democrat Congressman Jesús Garcia (@RepChuyGarcia) accuses former ICE Director Thomas Homan of wanting to kill & cage migrant children because they “do not look like” white children.
Homan finally SNAPS.
Complete SAVAGE BEAST.

Former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan delivered a fiery defense of border agents during a House hearing where Democratic lawmakers just hours earlier had decried conditions at migrant detention centers — as he ripped into the agency’s congressional critics and said they should be “ashamed” of their conduct.
“If you don’t like this, do your job. Fix it,” Homan testified before the House Oversight Committee, recalling in graphic detail his own experiences on the job seeing dead bodies in tractor-trailers as he underscored the severity of the border crisis.
He said agents, amid this crisis, have been subject to “unprecedented attack and vilification” and “those men and women who chose a life of service to this nation deserve better, not only from the media but those in this committee and other members of Congress.”
“As a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, it is shocking, shocking to see constant attacks against those that leave the safety and security of their homes every day, put on a Kevlar vest and put a gun on their hip and risk their own safety to defend this nation,” he said, at times appearing to get choked up as he defended his former colleagues.
He appeared to be in part referring to accusations by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and others who have made a host of allegations against agents, including that migrants were made to drink from toilet bowls. More
That’s right! Take the gloves off and fight! Clear competence and knowledge of the real facts from people like Thomas Homan always will put idiots like Ocasio-Cortez in their place.
Thank you, Mr. Homan, for your service and for being direct and honest. I loved it when he turned it on Rep Garcia telling him to fix it since that is Congress’ job.
