Former ICE Chief: ‘There Will Be More Caravans…Women Will be Raped, People Will Die, Children Will Drown’

Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Thomas Homan turned the fear-mongering up to 11 on Wednesday — warning that the Central American migrants are coming, and bringing a wave of horrific and unspeakable crimes with them.

Fox News’ Sandra Smith asked Homan about President Donald Trump‘s legal battles stemming from his effort to render illegal border-crossers ineligible for political asylum. Homan went off on 9th Circuit court judges, claiming they “don’t believe in the court of law,” and blamed them for the caravan’s approach by upholding challenges to Trump’s immigration policy.

Homan went on to claim victory over critics of his rhetoric on the caravan:

“I was called a fear-mongerer but unfortunately I was right. Based on this ruling, there will be more caravans instead of waiting in line like they were going to do in the safety and security of a port of entry protected by law enforcement. Now more caravans will come, enter illegally, put themselves in the hands of criminal organizations. We’re gonna bankroll smuggling organizations and drug cartels who control the corridors heading to the border and these people will be put at risk. Women will be raped, people will die crossing the border, children will drown, people will be misused by the criminal organizations as we’ve seen over and over again.”

Homan also predicted that Trump will win if this policy fight makes its way to the Supreme Court, saying the president can cite the same legal proclamations that allowed him to win his case on the travel ban from several Muslim-majority countries.

Even so, “the problem is, it will take months. In that months more people will come to this country illegally and violate our laws. Congress has failed to close the loopholes. They failed to give ICE enough funding to detain these people. It will be a surge until we get it fixed with the Supreme Court.”
