Seems the current administration has a ‘free’ 24 hour hotline, to help illegal immigrants who have been arrested.
~As states across the nation ramp up their efforts to catch illegal immigrants, the Obama administration on Thursday launched a new free hotline for people busted on violations to get help.
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.” (emphasis Guffaw)
The hotline will have translation services available in several different languages. ICE personnel will gather the caller’s 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.”~
Of course this has nothing to do with his (The President’s) tanking approval rating among Latino voters.
Our tax dollars at work, yet again.
If they think they may be U.S. citizens? You don’t know if you are?
I’ve no problem with due process for suspects of illegally being in the United States, however, I think they would know if they are U.S. citizens, or not. Maybe.
