(National Sentinel)Â Immigration Deformed:Â The rising number of Democratic Party supporters who demand open borders and the abolition of ICE probably don’t want to meet former Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief Thomas Homan in a dark back alley somewhere.
It would be aÂ very bad day for them.
Homan appeared onÂ Fox News‘ “The Ingraham Angle” with Laura Ingraham to discuss a recent shooting incident involving a Colorado police officer and, allegedly, an Iraqi refugee who narrowly escaped deportation in 2016, thanks to our country’sÂ ridiculousÂ immigration laws.
An Iraqi refugee who narrowly escaped deportation in 2016 and is now accused of shooting a Colorado police officer last week raises the question of â€œhow many crimes could have been preventedâ€ if the U.S. passed â€œimmigration laws that made sense,â€ former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan said Tuesday on Fox Newsâ€™ â€œThe Ingraham Angle.â€
â€œThe issue is, how many crimes could have been prevented if they werenâ€™t here?â€ Homan asked. â€œSo, for people that say, â€˜Well, [immigrants] commit less crimesâ€™ â€” well, the question is, how many crimes could have been prevented if we had secure borders and immigration laws that made sense? Thatâ€™s the question.â€
Karrar Noaman Al Khammasi, 31, was set for deportation in 2016 after he violated his probation terms following a trespassing plea. But a federal appeals court ultimately blocked the deportation proceeding because the federal immigration law he violated was â€œtoo vague,â€ an anonymous Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told the Associated Press Monday.
Al Khammasi now has been charged with shooting Colorado Springs Police Department Officer Cem Duzel. The Iraqi refugee was hospitalized following injuries he sustained during the confrontation. Duzel is in critical but stable condition.
â€œSo, once again, the courts end up making the job of enforcing common-sense immigration law much more difficult,â€ Ingraham said.
Homan said Congress has to “fix” immigration laws so that judges can’t say they’re “too vague.”
â€œIf theyâ€™re saying the definition of crime or violence is too vague, itâ€™s up to Congress to fix it, make it not vague,â€ Homan said. â€œBecause people who come to this country and commit crimes â€” they need to go home. I mean, we need to protect the sovereignty of this country. We need to protect public safety.â€

President Donald Trump is weighing whether to shut down the government in September if Congress refuses to implement key immigration enforcement and border security priorities, including funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
