Former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said he wanted to "throw up" after hearing Sen. Kamala Harris draw a parallel between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Ku Klux Klan.

Harris (D-Calif.) made the remarks during the Senate confirmation hearing for Ronald Vitiello, President Trump's nominee to lead ICE.

She asked Vitiello whether he shares what she said was the public’s view that ICE was spreading fear and mistrust, in particular among immigrant communities, the same way the KKK did.

"I wanted to throw up. It was disgusting. Me and her disagree on a lot of things. What she did today, I don't think an apology would even be accepted at this point," Homan said on "Fox News @ Night" Thursday.

"She put her political ambitions to be the president ahead of truth and ahead of the dignity of the men and women who serve this county," he said.

He recommended that Harris go to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, D.C. to see the names of the fallen officers -- including Border Patrol and ICE agents -- who died protecting their country.

"These are men and women who leave the safety and security of their home -- every day they put their lives on the line for this country and hundreds have lost their lives," he said, calling Harris' comments "plain wrong."
