Liberals are not known to be above ruining good things all in the name of sticking it to the conservatives.
That is exactly what happened when President Donald Trump opened up a hotline that would help people who have been victimized by illegal aliens. The hotline was meant to keep the people who committed the crimes accountable, instead of having them slip through the cracks because they are undocumented.
The victims of the crimes would have been informed as the alien moves through the immigration system.
Instead of taking this situation for what it is, a serious outlet to help Americans all over the country, these liberals have been calling the hotline and reporting crimes against aliens, but not “criminal aliens” as defined by the United States Government, which is a non-U.S. citizen that has been convicted of a crime.
Oh no, they have been using the hotline to report crimes of aliens from outer space, of the UFO variety.
There is no actual information as to how many people actually called the hotline, but jokes about it are blowing up all over Twitter. Misusing this hotline actually hinders the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from doing their job.
“There are certainly more constructive ways to make one’s opinions heard than to prevent legitimate victims of crime from receiving the information and resources they seek because the lines are tied up by hoax callers,” a spokesperson told Buzzfeed News President Trump famously enraged Mexicans by suggesting in June 2015 that the country’s immigrants were criminals and “rapists”, and he has continued to take a tough line on illegal immigration since entering the White House. Steep decreases in the number of people arrested while illegally crossing the border from Mexico in recent months have been touted by the administration as a sign that Mr Trump’s policies are having the desired effect.
The government says the VOICE office will keep victims of alleged crimes by undocumented migrants updated as the suspect moves through the immigration system, including if they are deported. Opponents of the administration’s policies and rhetoric focusing on immigrants and crime point out that numerous studies have shown immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes or be jailed than the native-born population. The American Immigration Council says this “holds true for both legal immigrants and the unauthorised, regardless of their country of origin or level of education”.
