TOM HOMAN (FOX CONTRIBUTOR): You know, it's incredible. I mean every time she opens her mouth she's wrong. I mean, supposedly she went to college in Boston. She must be an embarrassment to that institution. She needs to do her homework. First of all, no child died in ICE custody, that was a different agency, that was the Border Patrol. And they did everything they could to save that child's life, all right? That child was in bad shape. You want to blame somebody for deaths in custody? Then blame the Democrats that refuse to close the loopholes that cause these families to come in the first place. When you talk about human rights violations, does she realize that ICE has arrested and removed hundreds of human rights violators from this country, including Nazis and people that commit war crimes in certain parts of Europe? We actually arrest a lot of human rights violators. And she ought to be saying thank you, she's from New York. ICE agents have arrested and removed thousands of criminals from the streets of New York that were released from sanctuary jails that she supports. So, a thank you would be nice, rather than misinformation that she always puts out.
