On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, former acting ICE Director Tom Homan explained why Democrats do not appreciate the work Border Patrol agents do every day and why the agent involved in the horseback photos and video has been unfairly painted as a racist.
“AOC and Maxine Waters and Jen Psaki and the Secretary threw these guys under the bus. They haven’t said a word about 8000 lives these men and women have saved. They haven’t said a word about the three ICE officers that were hurt when Haitians stormed the plane in Haiti. They haven’t said a word by the agent driving the bus that was overtaken by Haitians and he was injured. They haven’t said a word about any of this stuff. So the men and women of the Border Patrol keep getting hurt and keep getting assaulted, not a word from their bosses or elected officials. But they will quickly turn this around to talk about again, throw the race card out, it’s ridiculous. They didn’t talk about how many agents have been under that bridge helping women giving birth. These men and women saved over 8000 lives this year. They deserve better from their elected officials rather than pulling some race card, it means nothing because you did nothing wrong. And now this agent, this hero, this patriot who stood on the front lines to defend this nation is sitting at home with no pay. That is ridiculous. And I’m upset and I’m going to stay upset until someone does something about it.”
