“More women are going to be raped, 31% are already being sexually assaulted, more children are going to die. We have to take the enticements away. So, I think they should look at this and really think about what the framers of the Constitution meant.” – Fox News contributor and former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan, on Fox & Friends this morning.
Earlier this summer Trump announced that Homan would be his “border czar” – an announcement that took his own aides by surprise and has not yet been acted on.
