How DHS Will Give VOICE to Victims of Criminal Aliens
The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday the official launch of VOICE — Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement — a department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) dedicated to assisting victims of criminal illegal aliens.
“All crime is terrible, but these victims are unique, and too often ignored,” said DHS Secretary John Kelly in a prepared statement. “They are casualties of crimes that should never have taken place — because the people who victimized them oftentimes should not have been in the country in the first place.”
“There’s no intent to make a pun,” DHS spokesman David Lapan told reporters in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, “but it really is to give a voice to the victims of crimes that have been committed by those who are in the country illegally.”
