On "Fox Nation In Depth," former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said Democrats are putting politics and their opposition to President Trump above national security.

In an in-depth interview with Tomi Lahren, Homan said it would "absolutely" be a fail for Trump if he doesn't build his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and that's what his opponents want.

"It's all about anti-Trump agenda, anti-law enforcement agenda," Homan said, noting that many Democrats spoke out against illegal immigration in the past only to reverse course because they don't support the current commander-in-chief.

He said that Trump "gets it" and understands that border barriers simply work, but Congress is preventing him from putting his plan into action.

Lahren noted that it's not just Democrats and there are many Republicans who campaign on the immigration issue but fail to act once they're on Capitol Hill.

"I think their motivation is to be re-elected. They're afraid of votes, and I think they read too much of the left-sided media," Homan said, calling on voters to hold their elected representatives accountable.

"We can be a safer nation, a sovereign nation if we just make a few simple changes. ... Regardless of what you think of the president, he's the president of the United States. His success is this country's success."
