What a novel idea, allowing those who have been victimized by those who are unlawfully present in the U.S. to track what’s going on
(Fox News) Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced on Wednesday the official launch of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s office for victims of illegal immigrant crime, and a program to help track the custody status of violent, illegal perpetrators.
ICE’s Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office (VOICE) was created in response to President Trump’s executive order to enhance public safety, which directed the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to support victims of crimes committed by criminal aliens.
“All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique — and often too ignored,” Kelly said on Wednesday. “They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place — because the people who victimized them often times should not have been in the country in the first place.”
Kelly outlined objectives of VOICE, including a “victim-centered approach” to support victims and their families, along with promoting awareness of available services to crime victims, such as the new automated service, DHS-Victim Information and Notification Exchange, which was created to help victims track the immigration custody status of those illegal alien perpetrators of crime.
Part of this is to make sure the victims are kept in the loop on enforcement and deportation status of the illegal(s) who victimized them.
Even before it was officially announced, the editorial board of the USA Today was having a hissy fit. You can bet the ranch that more leftists will come out against supporting victims of illegal alien crime in favor of the illegal aliens committing the crimes.
