AOC and other Dems lost their mind - Homan is a true American. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loudly banged a gavel to shut down ex-acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Tom Homan when he kept defending himself and his agency after she repeatedly told him that his time had expired during a contentious House hearing.
The confrontation occurred Wednesday during a House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hearing on the Trump administration’s decision to deny medical deferral requests from illegal immigrants with life-threatening illnesses.
Committee member Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — who, like AOC, a fellow member of “the Squad,” has called for ICE to be abolished — laced into Homan, who was appointed to the post by President Trump and served from 2017 to 2018.Homan — named “border czar” by Trump in June — asked to respond, but was initially put off as another witness was recognized. Minutes later, however, a still-simmering Homan was given a chance to reply and launched a blistering defense of himself and of ICE, according to a video posted by Talking Points Memo that showed part of the exchange.
