Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan on Verdict in Steinle Case

For Immediate Release
For media inquiries about ICE activities, operations, or policies, contact the ICE Office of Public Affairs at (202) 732-4242.

"San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had simply turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets. It is unconscionable that politicians across this country continue to endanger the lives of Americans with sanctuary policies while ignoring the harm inflicted on their constituents. Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country."

Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan

    Director Homan says, "This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had simply turned the alien over to ICE." Really, wasn't this man deported several times before this incident occurred?

    If he had been turned over to ICE instead of being released, this tragedy would have been avoided, but does anyone believe that he wouldn't have returned to the US after this deportation too? Or that he will not be back if he is turned over to ICE now to be deported?

    You won't reduce the occurrence of crime committed by aliens who are here in violation of law just by getting local police to cooperate with detainers.

    You also have to make interior enforcement effective and secure the border.
