Fmr. ICE Director: ‘Go Back to the Trump Policies’ to Secure the Southern Border

The former director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said (ICE) the best way to secure the southern border is to “go back to the Trump policies.”

“Look, what’s happening on the border right now is not a resource issue; it’s a policy issue,” Tom Homan told Dan Proft on the Counter Culture Podcast. “If they would simply go back to the Trump policies that gave us the most secure border in our lifetime, we’d be there.”

“Mandate E-Verify, finish the wall, then we’ll talk about what you want to do as far as future immigration,” Homan said.
