ICE Director Smacks the “Media” with the TRUTH…Fake, Whiny Left-wing MSNBC calls Him the “head of a violent gang”…

The left will fight fang and claw against ANY effort that helps our nation…

First, the TRUTH…

Now, the sick-sad fantasy world inhabited by dim-o-crats responds…

MSNBC political analyst Joan Walsh likened immigration agents to a criminal gang while Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), spoke at a White House briefing Thursday.

As Homan delivered an impassioned defense of the Trump administration’s crackdown on transnational criminal organizations and illegal immigration, Walsh referred to the law enforcement veteran as the “head of a violent gang.”

“Wow, the head of a violent gang is taking the podium at the White House,” she tweeted. “The head of ICE. Ask good questions please, WH press corps.”

Not only is Homan the leader of a criminal organization, Walsh said, but the gang he leads is America’s “deadliest”.

Homan was speaking at the beginning of the daily White House briefing to outline recent ICE enforcement operations against the violent MS-13 street gang. Taking questions from reporters, he stressed the need for tight cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration agents to dismantle gangs like MS-13 that operate across national borders.

“I cannot stress enough that operations are more effective with strong local partnerships,” Homan said.

Homan’s remarks come as the Trump administration seeks to turn up the pressure on sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with immigration authorities. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the Department of Justice will pull certain grants from jurisdictions that refuse honor ICE detainers, which are formal requests to local law enforcement to hold criminal aliens in jail for 48 hours so immigration agents have time to take them into custody.

Cities that refuse to honor immigration detention requests place both ICE agents and illegal immigrants in danger by forcing arrests to take place in dangerous, unpredictable circumstances instead of secure jail facilities, Homan said Thursday. The ICE chief also ripped sanctuary cities for encouraging risky human smuggling operations like the one that ended with the deaths of 10 illegal immigrants trapped in a sweltering semi-trailer in San Antonio last weekend.

Sanctuary cities “are a criminal’s best friend,” Homan said. “Smugglers use it as a part of their sales pitch.”

Walsh, the author of the 2013 book “What’s The Matter With White People?” on top of her gigs with MSNBC and The Nation, didn’t hide her feelings about Homan’s concern for his agents and potential victims of human smuggling. Responding to Twitter critics, Walsh doubled down on her earlier claims:

“They are brutalizing undocumented immigrants and dividing families,” she tweeted. “Proud of what I said.”

As for Walsh’s assertion that ICE is the deadliest gang in the U.S., a brief review of officer-involved shootings shows the claim to be false. This year, ICE agents have killed zero people in the course of arrest operations.

MS-13, by contrast, is responsible for at least 17 murders in just one New York county over the last 18 months, and dozens more throughout the country.

    Report: Illegals In Oregon Are Doing Time For Violent Crimes, Not Petty Offenses

    Oregon’s Democratic leaders say federal immigration detention requests, commonly known as detainers, often target illegal immigrants who are in jail for non-violent or petty crimes.

    But inmate profiles maintained by the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) tell a different story.

    The vast majority of criminal aliens in Oregon’s prison system have been convicted of homicide, rape and other violent crimes, according to David Olen Cross, an independent crime researcher based in Salem, Ore.

    Cross regularly pulls DOC data on the criminal alien population and compiles it into reports that categorize inmates by county, category of offense and country of origin. He obtains the information on behalf of Republican state Sen. Kim Thatcher in order to document the cost of incarcerating foreign nationals in the Oregon prison system, where one in 15 inmates is a criminal alien.

    The Oregon DOC does not disclose which inmates are in the U.S. illegally, only those who fall under the broader category of foreign nationals.

    Cross provided The Daily Caller News Foundation with his latest report, shedding light on the public safety threat posed by Oregon’s criminal alien population.

    There were 986 criminal aliens with outstanding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers locked up in Oregon state prisons as of July 1, according to Cross’ report. Of those, a combined total of 468 — or 47 percent — had convictions for rape, sexual abuse or sodomy, which Oregon state law defines as “deviate sexual intercourse” committed forcibly or against children under 12 years old.

    Another 138 criminal aliens — 14 percent of the total — had committed homicidal crimes, which include various degrees of murder and manslaughter. Other types of violent crime were also well-represented: a combined total of 134 criminal aliens — 13.5 percent of the total — were convicted for robbery or assault.

    Overall, three-fourths of the criminal aliens in the state prison system were serving time for what the FBI defines as violent crimes — murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault — or other sex crimes in the Oregon criminal code.

    The data illuminate an uncomfortable truth about crime in Oregon: the degree of criminality among the illegal alien population is significantly higher than that of native-born inmates. While 75 percent of the criminal aliens in Oregon prisons had convictions for the serious crimes noted above, just 60 percent of “domestic” inmates were serving time for those offenses, according to Cross’ report.

    Oregon is one of the nation’s most active states when it comes to limiting cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. It has had a sanctuary state law on the books since 1987, and Brown recently signed into law additional restrictions on the collection and sharing of immigration-related information with the federal government.

    State officials have been particularly fastidious about refusing to honor ICE detainers. In 2014, a U.S. magistrate judge found that Clackamas County violated the Fourth Amendment rights of an illegal immigrant, Maria Miranda-Olivares, when it held her on an ICE detainer after she was eligible for bail. To avoid further civil lawsuits, the Oregon Sheriffs Association recommended that jail officials stop responding to immigration detention requests unless they were backed by a federal arrest warrant.

    Of the five Oregon counties that send the most criminal aliens to the state prison system, none currently honor ICE detainers.
