In 2013, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio asked ICE Executive Associate Director, Enforcement and Removal Operations, Thomas Homan about the practice of “reverse escorting,” citing an exclusive story by political commentator Debbie Schlussel.
Homan confirmed the practice of transporting illegal immigrant children to various Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters around the continental United States.
Debbie Schlussel followed up on Thomas Homan.
She wrote in part,
“Homan predictably lied and claimed that what I wrote wasn’t true. In fact, it’s all true . . . in spades. Your money is being spent to escort illegal aliens into the American interior where they are sheltered until they can stay here permanently.”
The first four minutes reveal the relevant testimony.
