On Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly issued a memo stating the the United States would be shifting resources from defending illegal aliens to helping their victims, reports CNS News.
The memo created the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office, which will address victims’ concerns and provide information on legal action and immigration status of the criminal.
In the memo, which was actually dated Feb. 20, Kelly didn’t pull punches.
“Criminal aliens routinely victimize Americans and other legal residents,” he wrote. “Often, these victims are not provided adequate information about the offender, the offender’s immigration status, or any enforcement action taken by ICE against the offender.
“Efforts by ICE to engage these victims have been hampered by prior Department of Homeland Security policy extending certain Privacy Act protections to persons other than U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, leaving victims feeling marginalized and without a voice,” he continued.
“Accordingly, I am establishing the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office within the Office of the Director of ICE, which will create a programmatic liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.
“The liaison will facilitate engagement with the victims and their families to ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that they are provided information about the offender, including the offender’s immigration status and custody status, and that their questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed.”
And here’s the best part:
“To that end,” he said, “I direct the Director of ICE to immediately reallocate any and all resources that are currently used to advocate on behalf of illegal aliens to the new VOICE Office, and to immediately terminate the provision of such outreach or advocacy services to illegal aliens.”
That’s so unbelievably awesome. President Donald Trump’s America is looking better and better.
