This is one of the best things we’ve seen all weekend long. Former ICE Director Thomas Homan annihilates Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the border separation issue.
Ocasio-Cortez tried to challenge Homan on the border about the separation issue and was absolutely shredded.
AOC continued with the idiocy.
“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez interrupted.
“The same as it is with every U.S. citizen,” Homan shot back. “Parent [who] gets arrested with a child.”
“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car I’m gonna be separated,” Homan said. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his family.”
“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” said the congresswoman.
But Homan was ready, with a specific U.S. code no less: “When you’re in this country illegally, it’s violation 8, United States Code 1325.”
“Seeking asylum is legal,” she insisted.
“If you want to seek asylum, you go through a port of entry,” he responded. “Do it the legal way. The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”
“Okay,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
