Tom Homan, former acting ICE Director, did what many have not been able to do, and that was silence Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during Friday’s Congressional hearings on the topic of family separations at the border.
AOC tried to pin Homan down on creating the policy memo to separate children from their parents, but he wasn’t having any of her analysis.
Homan responded to AOC, telling her that he made “numerous” recommendations to the Department of Homeland Security and the most important piece of advice was a “zero tolerance” policy for border crossers who were illegal.
AOC interrupted Homan by trying to put words in his mouth; “Which includes family separation.” Homan gave the example that if he was with his child, and he was arrested, the child would be separated, which is true.
AOC then said; “Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime.” Now, forgive me but I didn’t know asylee was a word, but Homan then set her straight about how those seeking asylum should report if that was their intention.
That shut down, AOC.
She has absolutely NO argument on this subject because she is 100% wrong in her thinking and her logic. I’m surprised she didn’t just say “whatever.” She speaks like a teenager, and that is an insult to many teens.
When Homan says “they can come in a port of entry,” what he doesn’t say is that the admin has practically closed ports to asylees.
Out of desperation, families do what Óscar & Valeria(the father & daughter who drowned) did: face dangerous terrain.
These are policies of cruelty. https://t.co/ifQOxe1t5Z

Have you noticed when AOC does have a response, she manages to suck the intelligence right out of the room single-handedly?
