Under the orders of Joe Biden, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has ordered the shutdown of an office created by President Donald Trump for the purpose of helping victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens, as reported by CNN.
The announcement was made on Friday that the Victim Of Immigrant Crime Engagement (VOICE) office was coming to an end, instead being replaced with an office that will focus on helping victims of crime irrespective of the immigration status of either the victims or the culprits.
Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement that “all people, regardless of their immigration status, should be able to access victim services without fear,” directly implying that the new office will actually cater to illegal aliens rather than American citizens. Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson confirmed these intentions in his own statement, declaring that ICE would be “committed to serving all victims of crime.”
The VOICE office was first established in April of 2017, as one of President Trump’s earliest fulfilled promises on the immigration front. President Trump frequently discussed the issue of American citizens being attacked, and in some cases brutally killed, by illegal aliens. Some of the most infamous examples include the murders of Kate Steinle in California and Mollie Tibbetts in Iowa, both being killed by illegal aliens; Steinle’s murderer, Jose Zarate, had been deported five times prior to killing the 32-year-old Steinle.
The office with which Biden is replacing VOICE is called the Victims Engagement and Services Line, which, among other things, will provide guidance for illegals on how to obtain visas, as well as notifications about ongoing custody statuses and case outcomes.
