Former ICE Director Blasts ‘Idiotic' AOC, Calls Her ‘Dangerous' & ‘Disgusting'
Tom Homan slams socialist rep for encouraging people to tip off criminal illegal aliens
Tom Homan, the former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director blasted progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over her recent remarks encouraging people to tip off criminal illegal aliens to raids by ICE officials and commit obstruction of justice.
“Organizing is about tipping people off if you start to see that ICE and CBP are in communities, to try to keep people safe. … I’m here because Senator Sanders has actually committed to breaking up ICE and CBP.”
Homan responded to AOC's remarks:
“It’s ridiculous; it’s an extremely stupid statement made by somebody I’ve never considered real smart anyways.”
“But here’s an elected lawmaker, she’s a congresswoman standing on a stage telling people how to obstruct ICE, tipping off people ICE is looking and she needs to realize that 9-out-of-10 of everybody ICE arrested last year was a convicted criminal or pending criminal charges,” Homan continued.
“Last year, 137,000 criminals, 2,000 were murderers, 12,000 sex offenses, 45,000 assaults, 62,000 drug offenses, 10,000 weapons offenses, and she wants the community to tip these people if ICE is in their neighborhood operating,” Homan added.
In December, Neon Nettle reported that over a quarter of a million illegal aliens, and 5,500 gang members, were deported by ICE in Fiscal Year 2019.
Between September 2018 and October 2019, ICE agents deported nearly 267,258 illegal aliens, a four percent increase compared to 2018, and almost a 20 percent increase compared to 2017.
“ICE’s job is already extremely dangerous; now she’s making it more dangerous,” Homan continued.
“She’s one of these Democrats who keeps saying, ‘nobody’s above the law, the president is above the law, we need to impeach the president cause he’s not about the law,’ but apparently illegal aliens are above the law because ICE isn’t allowed to arrest them, it’s ridiculous statement. It’s a dangerous statement.”
Homan told Fox News, “I’m disgusted, she says she wants to tip off the communities to keep the communities safe, that’s what ICE is doing.”
“ICE is keeping the community safe,” Homan argued.
“It’s an incredibly stupid statement she made, which doesn’t surprise me because she’s about as far from smart as anybody could possibly be, but what she said is dangerous.
"These men and women put their lives on the line every day to arrest criminals off the streets, especially in New York.”

Retired ICE director Tom Homan absolutely eviscerates AOC for her "dangerous" & "idiotic" attacks. She encouraged folks to tip each other off during ICE raids, which ends up protecting, in many cases, violent criminals. pic.twitter.com/IlNOK4isI8
“My last year as ICE director, we took 5,000 criminals off the streets of New York,” Homan continued.
“These ICE agents have done more to protect the residents of New York than she ever has done or ever will do.”
“It’s a dangerous statement, it’s idiotic, and I just can’t believe that she can stand up on stage and make a statement like that and not have any repercussions from the House Ethics Committee,” Homan continued.
“They are trying to remove the president of the United States, a sitting president, and at the same time, she’s saying ICE shouldn’t remove criminal aliens.
"They say the president is obstructing them; there’s no one that’s been obstructing more than Congress.
"They’ve been obstructing this president from day 1.”
“She’s standing on stage and telling people to give a heads up that the good guys are going to be arresting the bad guys in your neighborhood… that’s obstruction, that’s a crime,” Homan added.
“She’s disgusting; something needs to be done about it.”
In June last year, Homan pointed out it was former President Obama who came up with the idea of putting illegal immigrant children in the “cages,” not President Donald Trump.
But Democrats continued to use the 'children in the cages' narrative to inflame outrage mobs against Trump and his campaign.
