ICE has a new way to round up criminal illegal immigrants, and it starts with you! They’ve created a hotline where any citizen can call and report being the victim of a crime of an illegal alien, and ICE will investigate it.
They are calling the hotline the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE). This is a response to President Trump’s January executive order that also strengthened ICE’s power. Trump called for services to be available for victims of crimes.
VOICE will provide a variety of support to victims including: a toll-free hotline, community relations officers, and skilled victim-assistance specialists.

In conjunction DHS has also launched the DHS-Victim Information and Notification Exchange (DHS-VINE) that will provide victims/witnesses, their family members, and victim advocates confidential notifications of changes in the criminal alien’s custody status.
“All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique, and too often ignored,” said DHS Secretary John Kelly in a prepared statement. “They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place — because the people who victimized them oftentimes should not have been in the country in the first place.”
“I had to sit with people who lost loved ones who were victims, and I have compassion for them. I commend the Trump administration for opening the VOICE office and standing up for victims and their families,” Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Penn.) said in an official statement.
