Former ICE Acting Director Tom Homan says he is "sick and tired" of Democrats attacking ICE after the raids in Mississippi and slammed Democratic presidential contenders for not expressing outrage about the attacks coming from left-wing extremists.

"Today it seems like we're fighting a small-scale civil war," Homan wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News following two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 dead and dozens more injured.

"Some angry people are claiming they have the right to harm and even kill others because of differences over political and public policy issues or because they believe people belonging to a particular racial, religious, ethnic, or other group are somehow evil or inferior and must be attacked.

"This is a poisonous attitude that is dangerous and un-American. Terrorism, murder, and acts of violence are wrong whether they come from the right or the left. They should be condemned by all Americans and all our institutions, including government, political parties, religious institutions, and the media."

Homan also said attacks on President Donald Trump's rhetoric were unwarranted as he was "simply doing his job by securing our border and enforcing existing laws."

Additionally, Homan criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for her description of detention centers as "concentration camps."
