ICE Director: 800 Criminal Aliens Unable to Be Located After Mayor's Warning

Ingraham Presses Jorge Ramos on Illegal Immigration, Trump's 'Racism'

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan made the case for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border Wednesday after President Trump hailed a "big victory" toward his long-sought project. 

U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel - who Trump famously criticized during the 2016 campaign - ruled in favor of the administration Tuesday and against challenges from environmental groups. 

Homan said on "Fox & Friends" that walls have proven to be effective along the border and construction should begin as soon as possible. 

"Every place they've built a wall it has worked. Wherever they built a wall, illegal crossings went down. I know a lot of people complain about the price of the wall, but what price are you gonna put on national security and public safety?" he asked. 

President Trump is scheduled to visit San Diego next month to view prototypes for the border wall. 

Homan also went after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) for warning the illegal immigrant community of raids by ICE in the area.

"What she did is no better than a gang lookout yelling 'police' when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to a whole community. This is beyond the pale," he said, explaining around 800 suspects could not be located because of Schaaf's actions.
