Former ICE official drops bombshell: If Trump goes back, I’ll ‘run biggest deportation operation’ ever

While speaking at the California Republican Party Convention in September, former President Donald Trump vowed that if elected president for a second time he would embark on the “largest deportation operation” in U.S. history — in 1954, hundreds of thousands of Mexican immigrants were deported by the Eisenhower administration in what was known as “Operation Wetback.”

With the illegal immigration population in the U.S. threatening to double in just four years under President Biden’s open border policy, that’s going to be quite an undertaking, but it appears that Trump will have a ready partner in former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan.

Homan appeared on Fox News and he told host Brian Kilmeade, who accurately noted that illegal immigrants “walk up by the thousands into our country,” that he has already promised Trump as much.

“In the last year and a half we got nearly 30,000 Chinese nationals, most of them military-age males,” Homan said of those swarming into the country. “That just scares the hell out of everybody.”

“The numbers keep growing,” he continued. “This administration has the same data points you and I had, you’d think that — China is not our friend, they’re creating a precursor to fentanyl. They’re selling to the criminal cartels in Mexico that have killed over 110,000 Americans. But this president hasn’t held China accountable.”

The former ICE official did not mince words in stressing how “drastic” the crisis on our border is.

“I’ve done this job for over three decades. I’ve never seen numbers anywhere near this,” Homan said. “This is drastic. This is the biggest national security failure that I’ve seen in this country since 911. This is historic.”

“And they can’t tell you how many Hamas and Hezbollah or Islamic Jihad are also coming across our border. Wait till things start blowing up,” Kilmeade weighed in, before asking his guest if he would serve again if Trump is elected in 2024.

That’s when Homan dropped this little bombshell: “I promised President Trump when he announced that if he goes back, I go back. And I’m going to run the biggest deportation operation this country’s ever seen because these millions of people being released in this country, nine out of 10 will get an order of removal based on immigration court data.

“A judge orders them to be removed. We’re going to find them and we’re gonna remove them,” he added. “If there’s no consequence, we can’t fix the border. We’re going to have a consequence in the Trump administration.”
