A so-called comedy sketch comparing ICE to ISIS by Michelle Wolf was blasted by the former acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The Netflix star compared the agency to ISIS in an “ICE IS” fake recruitment parody video on her show, “The Break.”
The disgusting video parodies a recruitment ad with Wolf, as Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, encouraging applicants and welcoming “those with diagnosed anger issues.”
So-called ICE agents are portrayed as having been rejected for other jobs with the “regular police” department, Animal Control, and the TSA.
Speaking with Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Saturday, Homan slammed the video and its inaccurate portrayal of ICE.
“It’s the most repulsive thing I’ve seen in my 34 years,” Homan said. “I heardI heard you say earlier that I’m angry. You’re damn right I’m angry because that is repulsive and there should be outrage over that comment.”

Homan referred to a scene where Wolf says, “It’s popular nowadays to say ICE is bad but there’s no better representation of American values right now than ICE is.”
In an especially disturbing and shameful scene, an “agent” says being a part of ICE is “guaranteeing my ticket to heaven,” in a nod to the jihadi belief to die as a martyr means a guaranteed and immediate ascent to Paradise.
“ICE special agents across the world have prevented terrorists from coming into this country. I find it repulsive that this so-called comedian wants to call ICE terrorists when we actually arrest, investigate, and dismantle terrorist organizations,” Homan said.
“It’s not just comparing to terrorists, it’s comparing it to ISIS,” Cavuto interjected. “That’s pretty serious stuff.”
“We’ve saved several thousands of children from drug traffickers,” Homan said. “We have arrested over 2,000 child predators who trafficked in children for sexual exploitation.”
“What ICE officers have done in this past year is arrest more than 100,000 criminals walking the streets of our country,” he continued. “We’ve seized 981,000 pounds of narcotics in the neighborhoods of this country. What ICE is doing is protecting this country and keeping us safe.”
The ex-ICE director continued to blast Wolf, who came under fire earlier this year when she hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and attacked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
“What ICE is doing is protecting this country and keeping us safe,” Homan told Cavuto.
“We’re not cutting heads off, we’re not a terrorist organization, and it’s just insulting to the men and women of ICE. These are men and women that leave their homes every day, the safety and security of their homes… to defend this nation,” he concluded. “They should be respected and not called terrorists, so I am angry. I’m insulted.”
