Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan wouldn’t say President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy for illegal border crossings, which has led to children being separated from their parents, is humane Tuesday, saying only, “I think it’s the law.”
When asked about the impact of the zero tolerance policy on the ICE officers who enforce it, Homan again emphasized their legal responsibilities.
“That’s our job” he said. “Our job is to enforce the law. We don’t get to pick and choose what we do. … Every police officer sees sad things, but we still gotta do this job.”
