Skip to comments.ICE launches hotline for busted immigrants
Posted on 12/29/2011 11:59:40 AM PST by dragnet2
The hotline, run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, is available 24/7 for detained individuals to phone if they think they may be U.S. citizens or victims of a crime.
The hotline will have translation services available in several different languages. ICE personnel will gather the callers information and send it to a field office for immediate action, according to the press release.
The purpose of the hotline and other measures, including a new detainer form, are to ensure that individuals being held by state or local law enforcement on immigration detainers are properly notified about their potential removal from the country and are made aware of their rights.
The new practices are part of a broader effort to improve our immigration enforcement process and prioritize resources to focus on threats to public safety, repeat immigration law violators, recent border entrants and immigration fugitives while continuing to strengthen oversight of the nations immigration detention system and facilitate legal immigration, ICE wrote in its press release.
ICE is an arm of the Department of Homeland Security.
Be a pity if it was flooded by a bunch of bogus calls.............(whistling innocently)..........
I have to think only the truly stupid will call, but hope the ICE agents answer with, “here’s your sign”.
I want a hotline to call if I wake up one day and think I’m a Mexican citizen.
Sounds like more Illegal Alien Amnesty to me....
Those calling the criminal help hotline who are not criminals themselves, will be subject to government penalties, fines and imprisonment.
That's a declaration of war against these United States.
MAY be U.S. citizens”? WTF is that supposed to mean? If anyone is that stupid, I suppose they may also be victims of post-hypnotic suggestion, demonic possession, abduction by space aliens, etc-shouldn’t a hotline be set up for that, as well?
Even as Cook County Illinois is defying ICE detainment requests and releasing illegal immigrant criminals.
What the h[!! is going on here?????
More insanity - from Illinois - of course!!!
Just another way for Obama and Holder to collect a database on law abiding, red blooded Americans who love their country.
What rights? They have no rights under the Constitution. They're here illegally which makes them criminals. The Feds don't want to enforce current immigration laws and this is just more proof of that. This is full-blown amnesty.
WTF is right.
I walk around nowadays, hearing all this government BS and continually mumble WTF, under my breath...
It’s just beyond anything resembling sanity.
And just think, you, me, and ever other tax paying sucker is paying for this hotline for criminals.
I used to live in a Northern California county.
They would bust illegals for a long list of things.
While processing thewse illegals & holding them for 30/60/90 days for their transgressions, the county Sheriff’s office would do it’s best to notify ICE & get them to take possession of the illegal when their time of incarceration was up.
ICE NEVER returned the phone calls.
ICE NEVER showed up to take the illegal.
ICE just plain did nothing.
The county could do nothing else except release the illegal back into the population.
ICE works AGAINST the USA taxpayer——not for them.
Ask Joe Arpaio.
And wouldn’t you just love to hear the barrage of idiot phone calls? “Hello, is this the ICE hotline? I think I may be an American citizen, but I’m not sure...”
