People Are Reporting Criminal (Space) Aliens To New ICE Hotline

The office says it's not a hotline to report crimes, only for victims to gather information on things like "immigration custody status of illegal alien perpetrators of crime" and "the immigration enforcement and removal process".

President Donald Trump launched an Immigrant Crime Hotline on April 26, and Americans are more than happy to report aliens to the United States government.

The new hotline is a part of the VOICE initiative created via an executive order by President Trump earlier this year.

I plan on calling every day to report how badly these green aliens from outer space are treating me.

In the same vein, the government recently launched the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office (VOICE) hotline, through which members of the public can report crimes committed by foreigners.

"VOICE exists ONLY to collect anecdotes for Trump and his allies to demonize and dehumanize (our) immigrant neighbors and families", he tweeted, an argument which is really not a very hard sell given that all of the "help" that VOICE purports to provide is already available from other resources, to say nothing of Trump's proven history of rampant immigrant-bashing.

ICE isn't happy about the prank phone calls.

ICE denounced the calls, saying such actions negatively hurt crime victims.

Critics took to social media to mock it and urged people to call the hotline to report space aliens.

In an email to CNN, the agency said, "The campaign to generate hoax calls is disrespectful to victims of crime and their families, and a waste of government resources".

An ICE official told Fox News that the hotline experienced significant delays due to the lines being flooded with tips of the extraterrestrial kind from those that oppose the hotline. If people keep calling, he said, maybe the administration will be forced to deactivate the hotline.

Another man tweeted that he called and reported that he got his "ass kicked by Superman". "Their actions seek to obstruct and do harm to crime victims; that's objectively despicable regardless of one's views on immigration policy", an ICE official said.

Alexander called the hotline again several times on Thursday but was unable to get through due to high call volume.
