Former acting ICE director says what Biden has done to previously secure border ‘almost treasonous’

Since President Joe Biden took office, former acting ICE director Tom Homan has been sounding the alarm on the “by design” open border policy of the administration. Now, after an estimated 2.7 million illegal immigrants have infiltrated the United States from the southern border, Homan contends the havoc wrought from the president’s policies “is almost treasonous.”

Homan joined Fox News host Dan Bongino on Saturday on the latest edition of “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino” where he leveled his accusations against the president based on the realities of the crisis caused by the “intentionally unsecured” border.

“I’m pissed off every morning I wake up, Dan,” the former Border Patrol agent told Bongino after the host had broken down some of the numbers regarding migrant encounters so far this year.

“Because we handed this president the most secure border in my lifetime,” he added, and later specified that “what he’s done” with it “is almost treasonous.”

“We worked hard with President Trump to get illegal immigration to an all-time low. This is the first president in the history of this nation who came into office and intentionally unsecured the border and he caused such a surge–it’s already 2 million this year–it’s overwhelmed the Border Patrol, up to 70 percent of Border Patrol agents have been pulled off the line,” Homan explained.

Earlier in the day, he had appeared on “Fox News Live” where he had touched on some of the specifics including the 1.7 million immigrants that had been released into the United States and the roughly one million “got-aways” that he told Bongino could include “known, suspected terrorists.”

“What’s that resulted in? It’s resulted in huge amounts of fentanyl coming across the border that are killing U.S. Americans–over 100,000. It has caused known, suspected terrorists to be arrested and 900,000 got-aways. Who knows how many of them are known, suspected terrorists? It is killing migrants,” he detailed. “Since Joe Biden became president, over 1,200 migrants have died on U.S. soil. That’s unheard of in the history of this nation–and over 100,000 Americans. His policies are not humane. They’re inhumane. They’re killing people.”

Further detail was included on “Fox News Live” when Homan touched on the previously reported story of illegal aliens being intercepted at the border donning ghillie suits. The former director explained his suspicions that they weren’t ordinary migrants, but that they were, in fact, working for the cartels.

“These are not three illegal aliens coming to the United States for a better life,” Homan asserted. “This is a, I would guess, this is cartel members making a dry run. They’re trying to find out what routes are unguarded. They’re monitoring what the border patrol is doing. They’re observing us.”

“Look, the cartels have night vision equipment, they have GPS equipment, they got these type of suits,” he went on indicating the ghillie suits used by hunters and military personnel alike. “They are studying the patterns of the United States Border Patrol figuring out what the best routes are to bring their drugs.”

Homan especially noted the seizure of fentanyl had increased by over 200 percent and that likely indicated a dramatic increase in the amount actually making its way into the country. “If they want to secure the border, they just dust off the Trump policies we worked on that gave us the most secure border in a lifetime.”

As he laid out to Bongino, “When President Trump had illegal immigration down 83 percent, when it was at a 40-year low, how many Americans weren’t dying of fentanyl? How many migrants weren’t dying? How many…millions of dollars were the cartels not making? How many known, suspected terrorists weren’t making it across the border? This president–what he’s done is almost treasonous, and every day I wake up, I’m upset.”
