News Radio 1200 WOAI's Michael Board was invited to tour the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas. The facility is the largest immigrant detention center in the United States.
During the tour, Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence defended his agency and blasted its many critics, saying ICE is enforcing the laws made by Congress today the same way it was defending them during the previous administration, and he didn't see any of this same 'ugly rhetoric' then."
"There is a lot of ugly rhetoric that is out there with regard to my agency, and DHS as a whole, and with regard to the people who are enforcing the laws that Congress has passed," Albence said.
He said during his stop in Dilley that he met with ICE employers who just last week endured having their office windows shot out, as they were in the process of rounding up and deporting illegal immigrants who have victimized people in the U.S.
