"I would like to remind you that under the Obama administration we worked most of his term as President." said Homan. "I can not remember hearings." He also pointed out that under Obama, when there was an upswing on the border, "Congress quickly gave us all the money we needed."
Jayapal responded and said, "Under Obama, I did not like government either."
Homan intervened, explaining that Congress should be more transparent and not criticize the Trump administration while giving Obama a passport similar practices existed. Jayapal used her hammer to restore order, while Homan said, "This is dishonesty, it's pathetic and sad." Jayapal reminded Homan that in the past he had testified in support of Obama government policies that differed from current policies. However, when Homan asked him if he could answer, Jayapal said no as his time had run out.
"Of course not." Homan said.
Homan, however, later got another opportunity to speak out and used it to blame Congress for border issues.
"You Want to Know Why 50,000 People Are in Detention" You want to know why there are one million illegal entries into the US. They want to know why we have these problems. Because you did not secure the border, "said Homan." You have not worked with this president to fill the three gaps we've closed for two years. "
Jayapal interrupted, informing Homan that his time was up He continued to talk about her, becoming impatient, claiming that others could outlive their time.

"This comparison is 100 percent inaccurate and it is disgusting," Homan said. "Now forgive me, I did not think the Nazi death camps had prison standards, I did not think they had any health care, I did not think that they had rest, legal libraries, visits and three places a day. It's an offensive comparison.
