Just in case there was any remaining doubt that this administration is on an ethnic cleansing campaign, let Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) acting director Thomas Homan—set to retire this summer from his job of tearing families apart to spend more time with his family—settle any remaining doubts you may have:
