Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan shut down another hysterical Dem lawmaker with simple facts.
Homan went viral earlier when he shut down Rashida Tlaib and he did it again this time shutting down Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.
He simply reminded her that when he worked for Obama the Dems did not have this double standard on border security and Chaos ensued. They simply cannot handle the truth.
From Fox News:
“I’d like to remind you, under the Obama administration we did that most of the years he was president,” Homan said. “I don’t remember any hearings on that.” He also pointed out that under Obama, when there had been a surge at the border, “Congress was quick to give us all the money we needed.”
Jayapal responded, saying, “I didn’t like it under the Obama administration either.”
Homan interjected, stating that Congress should be more transparent and should not criticize the Trump administration while giving a pass to Obama for similar practices. Jayapal used her gavel to restore order, while Homan said, “That’s dishonesty. It’s pathetic and it’s sad.”
Jayapal reminded Homan that in the past, he testified in support of Obama administration policies that were different from current policies, but when Homan asked if he could respond, Jayapal said no, as his time was up.
“Of course not,” Homan said.
Homan did get another chance to speak later on, however, and he used it to cast blame on Congress for problems at the border.
“Look, you want to know why there’s 50,000 people in detention? You want to know why there are a million illegal entries into the United States? You want to know why we have these issues? Because you have failed to secure the border,” Homan said. “You guys failed to work with this president to close the three loopholes we’ve asked for two years to close.”
Jayapal interrupted, informing Homan that once again, his time was up. He continued speaking over her, growing impatient and claiming that others were able to go over their time.
“I’ve asked you politely to let me go beyond my time, and you let other people go beyond their time, but not to Tom Homan!”
Jayapal slammed the gavel to silence Homan, only for him to say, “This is a circus.”
The exchange escalated from there, as Jayapal explained that one member of Congress was able to go beyond their time with the consent of the ranking member after a protester interrupted.
“Please respect the chair’s authority,” Jayapal said. As Homan began to respond, she slammed the gavel again and yelled, “Mr. Homan!”
“You work for me!” Homan fired back. “I’m a taxpayer. I’m a taxpayer, you work for me.”
