Obama orders ICE to install free hotline service 24/7 for Illegal Immigrants

As states across the nation ramp up their efforts to catch illegal immigrants, the Obama administration on Thursday launched a new free hotline for people busted on violations to get help. We believe that this is typical for our last article of 2011.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Thursday that it launched a hotline for people jailed on immigration charges who believe they are victims of crime or may be U.S. citizens.

Please do not misunderstand that, the illegal aliens apprehended in this country have always had the same phone as offered to every other inmate in custody for their mandated one phone call status. What is at issue here is the notion of providing a toll-free hot line staffed 24 hour a day by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to answer questions from people held in local jails about whether they may face deportation proceedings.

The hot line is the latest move by the Obama administration to address concerns about suspected illegal immigrants held in local jails. Earlier this month, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ended agreements that had allowed deputies at an Arizona sheriff’s office to check the immigration status of local jail inmates after a Justice Department (DOJ) report outlined allegations of racial profiling and discrimination against Latinos.

This is where we draw the line with Attorney General Eric Holder, President Obama, Asst. AG Tony Perez, and of course, DHS secretary Janet Napolitano. We wonder – legitimately so – whether or not anyone of the aforementioned could please send or publish or otherwise, a definite and correct version of what racial profiling is actually.

Truly one of the greatest travesties to ever get discrimination, or protected status has to be in the notion of “identity profiling” which is what is being done, under the guise of racial profiling; subsequently, any time that discrimination gets added on to anything excrement hits the fan and splatters those who realize that preferential treatment is being issued to the transgressors.

We take issue with this insofar as this is what dictates “special rights” given to any given class of people. This is not an invasion of a person’s natural, human, civil, sexual orientation, racial, marriage partner, sex (gender), creed, or religious rights. These are “special rights” that have been borne out of ad hoc type decisions from a lazy government.

Homeland Security also announced the creation of a new “detainer” form that gives law enforcement the authority to hold a person in custody for a time.

The notice informs these individuals that ICE has requested the [law enforcement agency] maintain custody beyond the time when they would have otherwise been released by the state or local law enforcement authorities based on their criminal charges or convictions,” an ICE press release stated. “The notice also includes Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese and Vietnamese translations.”

Immigration rights advocates have argued that there has been a need for more accountability and oversight in immigration detainers for a long time. To this we say fine…and we agree; albeit, on matters determining deportations.

“The ACLU and other advocates identified four native-born U.S. citizens who were held unlawfully in custody through immigration detainers in Los Angeles County. One of these citizens was held for two days because of an immigration detainer despite repeatedly telling officers that he was a U.S. citizen,” said Laura Vazquez, immigration legislative analyst for the National Council of La Raza, according to CNN.

Earlier this week, month, and year and many years before 2011 we discussed with many individuals as to why the US government feels it is appropriate to take part in funding organizations such as La Raza only to have members of these special interest groups putting it too their very benefactors.
