Acting ICE director Thomas Homan has a message for criminal illegal aliens, MS-13 gang members, and bleeding-heart liberals who defend them: “It is NOT okay to be here illegally.”
Homan made the remarks at the White House press briefing, shortly before WH press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke to reporters.
Homan said ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has recently made a lot of progress in arresting violent thugs belonging to the notorious international MS-13 gang, whose motto is: “Kill, Rape, Control.”
MS-13 has spread like a virus across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, especially El Salvador. The gangs have brought a tsunami of illegal drugs into the U.S., and its thugs brutally murder, rob, and rape countless innocent victims and terrorize vulnerable Latino communities.
Homan said liberals who support illegal immigration and thwart federal immigration laws by hiding illegals in sanctuary cities are endangering their communities and other illegal aliens, who are often the victims of MS-13 crimes.
“It is not okay to be here illegally,” Homan said. “It’s not okay to violate the laws of this country. We’re going to enforce the law.”

MS-13 thugs also engage in human trafficking, often charging exorbitant amounts of money to poor Latinos desperate to come to the United States. If the victims actually survive the dangerous journey, they are often raped, beaten, and forced into human slavery by their smugglers.
“Sanctuary cities, that’s an alien smuggler’s best friend,” Homan said. “Sanctuary cities not only endanger public safety, they endanger our officers.”
Homan made the remarks after several reporters suggested that ICE was a threat to non-criminal illegal aliens who are already in the country.
He underscored that ICE generally targets violent criminal illegals, and said the bleeding-heart leftists who support illegal immigration and sanctuary cities are endangering law-abiding Americans and the vulnerable illegals they so patronizingly feel sorry for.
“We got to tell people it’s not okay to violate laws in this country,” he said. “You can’t want to be a part of this country and not respect its laws. You can’t have it both ways. There are millions of people that are members of this society that enter this country the right way.”
Predictably, leftists slammed the ICE director, claiming federal immigration laws target innocent people. Joining the fray was moonbat MSNBC contributor Joan Walsh, who called ICE “a violent gang.”
Wow, the head of a violent gang is taking the podium at the White House. The head of ICE. Ask good questions please, WH press corps

That inane remark drew sharp criticism from conservative media, including the Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold, who pointed out that “ICE agents have died defending this country.”
Others joined Griswold in trashing Walsh’s dumb comment.
How many illegals is she hiding or how many are working for her with low paid salary?

Maybe when an illegal immigrant gang member attacks her or one of her loved one she’ll pull her head out of her ass & smell the coffee…..

Not surprisingly, Joan Walsh — who wrote an absurd book called “What’s the Matter with White People” — had no response to Griswold’s smackdown, probably because she blocked him.
Walsh has a history of obsessively searching for her own name on Twitter, trolling anyone who criticizes her, and then blocking them before they have a chance to respond. It’s typical snowflake behavior.
Earlier this month, Walsh was widely slammed after saying Ivanka Trump does not support women because she’s not butch and has the audacity to wear “girly” pink dresses with bows. The horror!
Ivanka's 'girly' dress makes her look like property, MSNBC's Joan Walsh really just went there https://t.co/Tz0CaLSdaF

That inane bit of hypocritical faux-feminism fueled some hilarious Twitter feedback:
