It’s crazy. Simply by ordering authorities to enforce existing immigration laws, President Trump is considered a kind of revolutionary. And when he takes new moves to turn the tide for Americans, he’s considered an outlaw.
If previous administrations had done this, who knows how that would have positively effected American life, in terms of everything from employment to crime rates.
Because that’s something that advocates for illegal aliens try so hard to gloss over. Yes, many illegals are “hardworking” people who “just want to provide for their families,” but it is a well known fact that Mexico takes advantage of lax U.S. border enforcement to export their criminal element into our country.
(Also? Why don’t liberals care about the American citizens who are struggling to “provide for their families,” but can’t, because illegals skew the job market and make their communities less safe…?)
As a result, an untold number of American citizens have been killed, raped, robbed and maimed by these criminals, in everything from drunk driving incidents (in which illegals play an inordinately high part) to theft and murder.
The Trump administration is serious about stemming the tide of illegal border crossings, but now we’re learning that they are doing even more to restore the balance:
In the new memo, the Trump administration established a new Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office to basically provide different types of information about a criminal alien to their victims.
The memo reads in part:
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.
To that end, I direct the Director of lCE 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.
Considering how much taxpayer money the Obama administration probably poured into “advocacy services to illegal aliens” — to what? Assist criminals with our money? — this means there will be a lot of funding flowing into this new VOICE Office instead.
During the campaign, Donald Trump frequently talked about the victims of illegal immigrants, and brought their families on stage to tell their stories. Now we know he wasn’t just grandstanding for votes.
The White House is clearly determined to provide these and other families with practical assistance. This will probably only be the first in a series of long overdue efforts to divert sympathy, attention and funding from criminals to victims, and from non-citizens to taxpaying Americans.
