Former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Wednesday that Joe Biden has "lost his mind," calling out the former vice president for saying that the United States should not deport illegal immigrants over a drunk-driving arrest. Biden also threatened ICE with punishment if the agency were to deport illegal immigrants arrested for drunk driving, saying his administration would fire agents who arrest and deport illegal immigrants for such a crime. "They go off to school wondering whether their mom comes and picks them up, is she not going to be there because an ICE agent was there to arrest her," Biden told Vice News on Monday. The 2020 Democratic front-runner added, "You're going to get fired, you're fired if in fact you do that. You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that's committed and I don't count drunk driving as a felony."

Gabbard, a dark horse candidate who represents Hawaii, was on the campaign trail Wednesday and unavailable for comment, according to her law firm, Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP. read more
