Obama’s WH Deleted ICE Docs Hours Before Trump Took Office

Just hours before President Donald Trump took office in 2017, federal workers were busy pushing the “delete” button behind the scenes, according to a new report.

According to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advocates for open government, the Obama administration deleted hundreds of speeches and statements that Immigration and Customs Enforcement had archived on its website, The Daily Caller reported.

The Sunlight Foundation discovered that these deleted files contained information on how the Obama administration handled some of the most pressing immigration issues, such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify and the treatment of migrant detainees.

In total, a staggering 190 documents were purged from ICE’s website.

“With a couple of clicks of a mouse, access to a federal government web resource containing 12 years of primary source materials on ICE’s history was lost,” the Sunlight Foundation wrote.

Speeches and transcripts dating back to 2004 were also deleted, according to the report.

“The removal of the ICE speeches collection represents the loss of a primary source history of the early days of ICE, dating back to its creation during the George W. Bush administration in 2003,” the Sunlight Foundation wrote.

Thomas Homan, the former acting ICE director and a Trump supporter, ended up one of the biggest losers in this deletion rampage.

In February 2016, Homan delivered a presentation to the Senate Judiciary Committee discussing the “Unaccompanied Minor Crisis.”

He told senators about how the Obama administration was working with ICE to manage — and ultimately end — the surge of illegal migrant children crossing the border.

Everything relating to this speech was deleted.

In May 2016, Homan attacked cities that claimed “sanctuary” status for illegal aliens, saying they put “the public at risk.” The transcripts for this were also deleted.

Homan has been a vocal supporter of Trump, appearing on Fox News multiple times to side with the president, most recently on the president’s plan to impose tariffs on Mexico if the country failed to clamp down on its own illegal immigration problems.

“I agree with the president 100 percent and I agree with the tariffs,” Homan said in an early June Fox appearance.

But why would someone delete all of this information?

While it’s not entirely clear, some have speculated that the Obama White House likely didn’t want to give the Trump administration any help in its fight for stronger borders.

“It is not inconceivable that an outgoing Democratic administration might want to avoid preserving these public stances for future scrutiny,” the Foundation wrote.

There’s no telling how much damage Trump would have been able to inflict against Obama and the Democratic Party if he had access to this vanished archive — but knowing the president, he’d be tweeting about it for days on end, making sure millions of Americans were informed.

    It’s called obstruction of justice…Ovomit looks GUILTY! Ovomit is hiding more evidence of helping Mexican government with Illegal immigrants.

    • Cynthia says:

      Agree. Why else would you delete theses documents? Obama is as corrupt as Hilary, maybe even more so. He was completely involved in everything, Benghazi, fast & furious, uranium one, supplementing terrorists and trying to give them access to our financial institutions, working with Russia and knowing of their interference since 2009, corruption within HIS FBI and DOJ and especially with Hilary’s server and email scandal. Seventeen days before leaving office he expanded the list of agencies who receive all of this confidential information which was probably the reason for all of the leaks, bugging Trump’s office, spying on specific Americans and then trying to set them up and with his continued effort to interfere with Trump’s administration and his effort to get the job done.

      Obama, the Great Divider, is a piece of shit. He’s the reason for the division in our country. He lied about being Muslim and had no problem giving them tons of money. He hates the military, police force and America. His good buddy is Soros, who has stated that he would like to bring America down.

      You want obstruction of justice, I give you Obama and Hilary along with their partners in crime.

    • Paula Wiser says:

      Yes indeed

    • Deb says:

      I have never seen a more corrupt POS than Obama. All of those Demos performed such corrupt and unlawful acts. Glad he’s out of office but Obama hurt the hell out of our country!!! They should all be in prison!! Clinton’s, Soros, Obama, Lynch, and Comey!! Etc etc!!

    • CharlieSeattle says:

      …and yet, no one is arrested.

  • ginny says:

    its time these folks get the axe, enough is enough, Treason, Guilty, how much more do we need to put these folks in JAIL, disbarred from politics, loose your atty licence, their life long salary, pension medical care, all benefits

    • Doug Story says:

      Not jail, that’s still taxpayers paying to house them, feed them, and keep them (not in a manner to which they’re accustomed), but keeping them still.

      No, the traditional punishment for treason is execution.
      Put the execution of Obama and Hillary on Pay-per-view and we could pay off the National Debt.

  • Dolores Herrmann says:

    Tried his best to make things more difficult for Trump instead of trying to help the USA and the new POTUS. What a jerk. He deserves whatever bad luck comes his way and I hope they find something to really turn the screws on him and Hillary.

    • Paula Wiser says:

      Exactly and i think he is still doing that we all know thos 20 Democrats candidates are some of the stunt he would pull . To intimidate trump . But that didnt work ..just like i believe he is paying to have trolls attack supporters in droves . He loves gangs not one on one

    • Sherry says:

      Yes! A big cry baby in a suit, always lying through his teeth and hating America. He is the reason, directly and indirectly, for so much racial / political tension and fast-growing decline of morale and decency in our Country.

  • Rbruce says:

    If Hillary’s deleted emails can be found, these recently discovered deleted documents can be recovered as well. Somewhere there are backups.

  • Ronald D Murphy says:

    Obama should be brought up on charges, If it were Trump Pelosi would be screaming impeachment.

  • Zynn says:

    If I recall, the NSA has copies of everything from every gov computer system, safely archived.

  • neo says:

    Obozo was covering up all the illegal Somalia refugees he had flown in during his presidency that ended up electing the muslims in congress….just ANOTHER count of Treasonous act from the Kenyan muslim

  • MO says:

    “but knowing the president, he’d be tweeting about it for days on end” Sounds to me like you have problem with that. You don’t know why Obama would delete all that data I DO he was trying to cover up the obama democratic parties corruption behind the American peoples back and the new President. I pray somebody has the balls to do something about the terrorist and hilary clinton and the big boss Soro’s before they really get too far into the islamification of this country.

  • James says:

    well well.
    those documents are GOVT PROPERTY, and the MUSLIM FRAUD should be charged with OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND TREASON.
    and the same with OLD MARXIST HILLARY BEAST.

  • Carolyn Vick says:

    You know, we can no longer go on with things the way they are. I am not saying the repubs have never done anything wrong but what is happening in the country today is totally heinous. We must have a congress and legislature that works for the people and in protection of the people rather than for themselves. I am continually amazed at the way the bad guys (against the people) act with respect to us and continually amazed that we LET them do it. Why are we not marching on Washington to bring them down? Are we scared of the minorities (LGBT’s, etc.)? Hateful, selfish individuals who would bring down the whole world in order to do what they want? Sure voting helps, but that takes time, all the while we sit on our butts and accept what they do. WHY? It is getting worse. Government is bound to work for the people and yet they do not. Stand up people. We must have term limits and jail those that harm us NOW. No more pussyfooting around. We deserve better!!

  • coachpan says:

    And pray tell; what will happen now?

  • Larry Gaines says:

    Obama is guilty of more than that

    • Aline says:

      Oh yeah, this piece of work, is guilty of TONS more! He is a disgusting parasite!

      • Questionman says:

        Spoken like a True racist, bigoted, black-hating Klansman cünt, and you ARE a true racist, bigoted, black-hating Klansman cünt.

        Guess we see what happens when Black people enter the White House. the racists and bigots like you come out in full force. Trump supporters are dumb, uneducated, delusional idiots pushing for change, regardless of what disaster may entail You are living proof of that.

        Its sub-humans losers like you Klansman Trump supporters that proves racist white supremacists are the most retarded unintelligent racist turd in the world. And you are the living proof.

        • Kirk Bush says:

          And you call Trump supporters racist coming from a racist comment?
          Obama, being black, white, purple or yellow is still a treasonous factor in
          the destruction of America. So put away your black racist victim card
          and look at the facts of what Obama did to this country to bring it down
          during his 8 years of treasonous of disservice to the American people.
          Stop being the victim and look for truth not lies that the MSM keep feeding
          the victimized Trump haters. He’s America’s President duly elected by the
          American people who love and want the best for each citizen who “Legally”
          live here. Trump will succeed in 2020 so strap in for the ride.

      • Questionman says:

        Test

  • Oscar Pearson says:

  • Patrick says:
