Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan said at a White House press briefing Wednesday that no illegal immigrant should “be comfortable” in the U.S.
Homan was at the briefing with U.S. Attorney John Huber to support two anti-illegal immigration bills that Congress is set to vote on. One of the bills will not allow jurisdictions that refuse to comply with immigration detainers to receive grants from the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. The other bill would increase the punishments for a deported illegal immigrant who returns to the U.S.
The 33-year law enforcement veteran highlighted the effects of President Trump’s executive orders on illegal immigration and said that since these were signed in late January ICE has arrested 66,000 individuals known or suspected of being in the country illegally. This is a 39.3 percent increase over the same period in 2016.
No one who breaks the law should be comfortable.
This person is spot on and frankly, it is about time for this attitude.

Good. He's exactly right. Criminals need to go to jail.
Why isn't Sessions putting the big dogs in small cells yet?

Trump says administration is 'liberating towns' from the MS-13 gangs
President Trump, pushing legislation to crack down on illegal immigration, said Wednesday his administration has been "liberating towns" from MS-13 gangs.
Speaking in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Trump said the immigration bills being considered by the House "will close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists. MS-13 is a prime target."
