After President Joe Biden announced that he is going to have his Vice President Kamala Harris handle the border crisis that many say he created, former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said that she is actually the worst possible pick for this position.
“When President Biden says [Kamala Harris] is the most qualified, I mean, seriously? What color’s the sky in his world? Because you couldn’t get a worse pick,” Homan told Fox News. “Look, she supports sanctuary cities, she wrote legislation to reward those who illegally entered into the United States.”
“She vilified the men and women of the Border Patrol during the last surge, saying they are mistreating immigrants. She’s an open borders advocate,” he added. “She wants to abolish ICE and she compared immigration officers to the KKK during the Senate hearing, and you want to put her in charge of immigration enforcement on the border? I couldn’t think of a worse choice.”
This comes a day after Homan accused Biden of creating the border crisis, saying that officials in his administration “get on TV every day and lie about it [the situation at the border] saying it’s not a crisis, but if it is a crisis, it’s President Trump’s fault.”
“President Trump gave us the most secure border in my career, which spanned almost 35 years,” Homan said. “They [the Biden administration] tore it apart in two weeks. What I would like from this administration is a little integrity. Get on national TV and tell the truth to the American people.”
Homan went on to say that illegal immigration actually decreased about six years ago under then President Trump because “we built thousands of detention beds, we detained people. We detained [them] until they saw a judge [and] 90% lost their cases. ICE removed them.”
“We took away the enticements,” he said. “What are they [the Biden administration] doing now? The complete opposite by design. They’re not detaining people. They’re releasing them as quick as they can. ICE has been gutted. They not deporting anyone and they [the Biden administration] keep offering more and more enticements.”
Homan then said that “this is what open borders looks like.”
“Joe Biden has sold out this country and our national security and our border security to win an election. There is no other excuse,” he said.
