‘She failed the American people…’
(Ben Sellers, Liberty Headlines) When many on the extreme Left were calling for the abolishing of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureau in the spring, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was slow to jump on board.
Now, it seems’ the 2020 presidential hopeful is making up for lost time, with a recent rhetorical standoff that found both sides comparing the other side to the Ku Klux Klan.
Many on social media and within the cable news punditry condemned Harris’ remarks during a Capitol Hill hearing for Ronald Vitiello, President Donald Trump’s nominee for ICE director.
Among them was former ICE boss Tom Homan, who called the comments “disgusting” during an appearance Monday on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
“For her, as a U.S. Senator, to make that comparison… she failed the American people. ICE is enforcing the law that Congress enacted,” Homan said.
He called on Harris to apologize to ICE and law enforcement.
“They’re not making this up… Shame on her,” Homan said.
As some observed, both the KKK—which was principally a Democrat-run organization to prevent newly emancipated blacks from voting Republican—and the Left’s current position on ICE—designed to prevent the enforcement of immigration rules in order to entrench Democratic electoral power—found the party on the wrong side of the law.
Homan said recent reports of clashes between Tijuana residents and the migrant caravans set up there while hoping to gain entry into the U.S. were not surprising.
“Mexico’s finally saying enough’s enough, and the reason this is coming to a head is because President Trump has taken power—so you know what, our border’s closed for illegal business,” Homan said. “What he’s done is force this caravan to be stuck in Tijuana.
“He’s put this issue on the front burner…. He’s been right on everything he’s done on this border.”
