Gillibrand is one of the Democrats who has called for the abolition of ICE. Gillibrand also used to be a friend of the NRA but is now strictly anti-gun due to changing demographics of her electorate.
Former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan suggested on Monday that if he decides to run for political office in New York state, he would ultimately want to take on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).
“Let me just say this,” Homan told host Larry O’Connor during an episode of his “Examining Politics” podcast. “When I do return to New York and if Senator Gillibrand is still around, she won’t be around because I will take her on.”
Homan’s remarks were in response to O’Connor’s inquiry as to whether Homan would be interested in replacing Rep. Pete King (R-NY), who announce that after 14 terms in Congress he would not be seeking reelection when his current term expires.
Homan, who was born in New York, noted that he was not currently a resident of the Empire state, but will likely be when he retires, similar to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who previously held the United States Senate seat.
