‘Thank God Trump is a bulldog!’ Fmr ICE director says use troops, go back to family separation … anything to stop invasion

Former acting ICE Director Tom Homan is thrilled to have a “bulldog” president as a caravan of Central American migrants heads towards the U.S. border.

In an interview Sunday on “Fox & Friends,” Homan applauded President Donald Trump’s threat to use military action if needed at the southern border in order to protect Americans.

“I’m glad we’ve got a president that’s a bulldog and is gonna protect this country at all costs,” Homan said. “Thank god Donald Trump’s sitting in the White House.”

Trump vowed in a tweet last week that he would call in the U.S. military to stop the thousands of migrants planning to enter the U.S. illegally.

By early Sunday, the caravan was marching toward the Mexican city of Tapachula, according to Fox News.

Homan believes a great misconception the public is being fed is that most of the illegal immigrants who are marching toward the border are actually attempting to join family members already in the U.S. and not seeking asylum from persecution in their homeland. Immigrants interviewed by Fox News’ William La Jeunesse on Sunday appeared to confirm that.

Trump called out Democrats in a tweet over the weekend, slamming them for being “obstructionists” who have refused to come together and “agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour.”

Homan agreed with the president, criticizing Democrats for not closing the “loopholes” that allowed the  controversial family separations occurring at the border because of the administration’s zero-tolerance policy.

“The whole reason family separations happened was because Congress — specifically the Democrats — will not close the loopholes that are causing this stuff,” he said. “If they would have closed these loopholes when we asked them to, none of this stuff would have been happening.”

He called on Americans to increase the heat on their elected representatives.

“American voters need to call their Republican senator and their Republican congressman and tell them to make this happen,” he said.

The president unloaded in a series of tweets on Sunday, declaring that efforts were being made to “stop the onslaught” of the caravan.

“Change the immigration laws NOW!” Trump tweeted, railing against the caravan as “a disgrace to the Democrat Party.

Jessica M. Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, believes the caravan “won’t take long” to reach the U.S. southern border, telling Fox News it could arrive in a “matter of days” depending on how the participants choose to travel through Mexico, noting they could take a train.

“I’m sure there are some people within that caravan now who are willing to take their chances on their own with the criminal smuggling organizations that are already in place that would be more than happy to do business with them,” Vaughan said Sunday.

She also noted that this migrant caravan, like others before it, are “formed by activist groups” who are “manipulating” the participants to make a “political or ideological statement” and is not a “humanitarian crisis as much as it is a challenge to the sovereignty of borders.”

Vaughan called for the practice to be “nipped in the bud,” backing Trump’s assertion that there are criminal elements within the caravan.
