One of the constant themes during the campaign of President Donald Trump was the concern for the families of the victims of illegal alien crimes.
He regularly visited with them, traveled with them and championed their cause.
Now he is following through with real help.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the development of a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office focused on helping victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The office will also assist family members of victims and is part of President Trump’s recent executive action to bolster enforcement of immigration laws already on the books.
“This office [Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office] will facilitate the engagement with victims and their families to ensure questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed,” Spicer said, adding that the establishment of the office fulfills a campaign promise.
The purpose according to the memo from Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly is so the families no longer feel “marginalized and without a voice.”
Biggest kicker of all?
Further, Kelly immediately ordered the Director of ICE to “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.”
The American citizen victim has been overlooked for far too long.
So wonderful to see those so long ignored finally being heard.
