The Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer, who was once praised by President Donald Trump's campaign, is "out of touch" in his criticism of ICE's acting director, according to a Department of Homeland Security official.

Chris Crane, who heads the ICE officers' union, told Breitbart earlier this month that "It is a disgrace that the man who oversaw [President Barack] Obama's effort to release criminal illegal aliens into our country is now the acting director of ICE," referring to current acting director Thomas Homan, who was previously the executive associate director of enforcement and removal operations for ICE in the Obama administration.

"Someone under Trump has been allowed too much authority in choosing the worst possible Obama-holdover to lead the vital effort of enforcing our nation's immigration laws."

An unnamed DHS official responded to Crane in an article published last week, defending Homan.

"The ICE workforce, which Chris Crane claims to support, would be far better served if he focused his efforts on supporting ICE's expanded enforcement priorities, instead of undermining them with false personal attacks," the official told The Daily Beast. "Mr. Crane's comments are strikingly out of touch with the impressive gains made in the enforcement of immigration law under the Trump administration."

Crane shot back that, "One would hope that someone lobbing such personal attacks would have the courage to put their name on their words, but cowardice is what ICE officers have come to expect from the bureaucrats in D.C."

He added, "They did not attack my arguments, but rather engaged in ad hominem to smear me. Too bad Obama-holdover Homan and his circle did not have the courage to even offer anonymous criticisms during Obama's presidency when they helped him release tens of thousands of criminal aliens into U.S. communities."
