On Fox News, Brian Kilmeade remarked to former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan that illegal immigrants were “walking up by the thousands” into the U.S., highlighting the border crisis caused by President Joe Biden’s policies.
“In the last year and a half we got nearly 30,000 Chinese nationals, most of them military-age males,” Homan warned. “That just scares the hell out of everybody.”
He continued, “The numbers keep growing. 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.”
“I’ve done this job for over three decades. I’ve never seen numbers anywhere near this. This is drastic. This is the biggest national security failure that I’ve seen in this country since 911. This is historic.”
Kilmeade added, “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 inquired of Homan if he would accept an appointment to the Trump administration in 2024 should Trump win the election.
Homan’s response was direct, “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 continued. “If there’s no consequence, we can’t fix the border. We’re going to have a consequence in the Trump administration.”
