‘I’d Had Enough’: Former ICE Director Recaps His Rage After Members of Congress Accused Him of Racism

The former acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gave a recap of how he felt after members of Congress accused him of racism during a House committee hearing.

During an interview with “Fox and Friends,” former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan was asked about his recent experience during an explosive House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform testimony regarding the conditions of migrant detention facilities along the U.S.-Mexico where multiple Democrats on the committee — including the self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) — went after him.

Homan said that he had “broke” after freshman Democratic Rep. Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.) accused him of not caring about dying migrant children because “these children do not look like children that are around [him]” during their heated exchange.

Watch the exchange here:

“That’s when I broke,” said the former acting ICE director. “As you noticed, I hesitated a minute before I started yelling because I was actually thinking of getting up and throwing that man a beating right there in the middle of the room. Because when you tell somebody that’s spent their career saving lives that I don’t care about dying children and I’m a racist, that’s where I broke.”

“And that’s where I’d had enough,” added Homan.

Watch Homan’s interview here:

As IJR Red previously reported, Homan said that he was “insulted” by Virginia Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) not letting him “respond” to the “dirt” he was throwing during their contentious exchange in the Friday hearing, describing the experience as “political theater” during an appearance on Fox News’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” the same day.

“This is about political theater. He ran out of there like a little girl. He’s a coward. He didn’t want to hear my response because this was all political theater,” said Homan, later adding, “This is about transparency but you won’t let me respond to what you’re saying.”

The leaders of the swamp keep spilling their socialist propaganda hoping someone will one day believe it.

NOTHING is about facts anymore. It’s all about whatever theater will advance the Dumbocrap party. They’re becoming more fake than CNN and that is a MAJOR statement.


Socialists speaking: Waste of good oxygen for their usual racist nonsense.

Arlene Wuske

As soon as they open their mouth the word racism comes out because they don’t have an answer they want. They made the laws before Trump was a politician and now they don’t want you to follow their laws. For 2 years they have been begged to address the the laws and they refuse. The only thing to do is attack the people paid to enforce the congress laws.

Demo-?’s never want to hear the truth they are the biggest peddlers of lies and misinformation that there are.

That CLOWN GARCIA is nothing but a coward , He is typical of Democrats , They love to insult and shoot their mouth ,with out any proof Garcia is full of hate and he is a disgrace to our Country .

Rob Carpenter

First off, the speaker is a moron to allow his party to ask questions and not let the person respond to each of those questions. Secondly the manner of those questions should have been called out by the speaker immediately. He says he “will have civility”. Only time he calls for civility is when someone goes at the throat of a Dem. While Garcia was berating and making all sorts of accusations without allowing Homan defend those accusations did the speaker jump in and stop it. But Homan is right on. You call for open borders and the flood gates… Read more »
