SCHULTZ: Mr. Chairman, before I ask my questions,
since it has not yet been done, I think it’s important
to really make sure that the jingoistic, bigoted
testimony of Mr. Homan is called out as
nearly completely untrue as being an outrage. And as a former
official directing the Immigration and
Customs Enforcement Agency, he should know better. So– TOM HOMAN: Mr. Chairman. –making sure that I am–
TOM HOMAN: Mr. Chairman. No.
No. This is my five minutes.
TOM HOMAN: Why don’t you point– what did I say was inaccurate?
– Excuse me. I’m not asking a question. COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN: OK. The gentlelady is
recognized for five minutes. She’s made her point. And I will try to
resolve any other issues at the end of her questioning.
– Thank you. So I just think it’s
important that it’s not accepted as accurate testimony. Mr. Homan, is there
a crisis on the border? Of course. JIM JORDAN: And has there been
a crisis there for a long time? Yes.
JIM JORDAN: I just want to– because your testimony was at
the broader issue, and this is critically important. But we also have a
broader issue there. We’ve got unbelievable
numbers we’ve seen on the border
with apprehensions and everything else, right? Absolutely. And if I can respond to the
earlier remark from Wasserman Schultz, I’ve forgotten
more about this issue than you’ll ever know. So to say my testimony
is inaccurate is wrong. Everything I said is accurate. Bottom line, if you want
to go toe to toe, I’m here. I’m here on my own time to
speak to the American people about what’s false– DEBBIE WASSERMAN
SCHULTZ: I’m sure happy– –and what’s fact. DEBBIE WASSERMAN
SCHULTZ: –to go toe to toe with you, Mr. Homan.
Happy to– Well, I’m here. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ:
–do that any day. But you’ve got to let me
respond to your question rather than– DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ:
I didn’t ask you– –dropping a bomb– DEBBIE WASSERMAN
SCHULTZ: –a question. –and running away. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: It
was my time, and I wasn’t– So there is a crisis– DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ:
–asking you a question. –on the border.
