Former ICE Director’s Op-Ed Reminds us Obama Deported Three Million Immigrants
Breitbart News captured video of a group of open borders activists making threats against “employees of a government contractor in Florida that provides facility space for the ICE agency to detain border crossers and illegal aliens the day before a shooting at the contractor’s offices in Texas.”
One protestor shouted out the locations and addresses of where the Group’s former general counsel’s children live. “We know where all your children live throughout the country…we know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here” the protestor shouted. Another one said “we know where you sleep at night…we’re not actually joking…you go to [bleeped out], you go to church on [bleeped out], you live on [bleeped out] road. We are not joking.”
Former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Tom Homan wrote an op-ed for foxnews.com today titled “ICE, Border Patrol are targets for left-wing extremists. Where’s the outrage from Dems?” Homan called out the hypocrisy of Democratic politicians who condemn actions such as the El Paso shooter yet “failed to condemn the hate-filled diatribes and violence generated by extremists on the left. There should not be a double-standard.”
Violence geared towards law enforcement and immigration protection agents has been increasingly rampant. Just last month an ICE detention facility was attacked by a man with a firearm who tried to set the building on fire. Foxnews.com reported that “before attacking the ICE facility, the man is accused of sending a letter to friends that he titled a ‘written manifesto,’ which detailed his motivation to ‘take action against the forces of evil’- specifically ‘fascism’ and concentration camps.”
Looks like these open border activists are verbatim using Democrats’ rhetoric as their own. Politicians and leaders are calling President Trump a white supremacist and baselessly accusing him of not condemning the shooters and domestic terrorists. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Homan reminds us that Trump is just doing his job keeping our borders safe and that consequences for illegal immigration is nothing new. “In 2012, for example, Obama deported nearly 410,000 people – a record. Last year President Trump deported just over 256,000 immigrants. In his eight years as president, Obama departed nearly 3 million.”
