The story continues to unfold across the Internet!

Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the opening of a hotline meant for victims of crimes committed by “criminal aliens,” a term used by the agency to describe criminal immigrants.

The phone banks began lighting up almost immediately. But to the great dismay of DHS officials, it appears many callers took the agency’s words at face value, and are making use of the hotline to report encounters with criminal aliens…of the extraterrestrial variety.
Critics of the newly minted Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office argue that the real purpose of the hotline is to disparage immigrants, not offer any meaningful assistance for victims. In addition to the hotline, VOICE is also tasked with publicly tracking and highlighting crimes committed by both legal and undocumented immigrants. Immigrant advocates are concerned administration officials are using the office to elevate the perception of immigrants as criminals, an impression rooted in President Donald Trump’s own rhetoric equating immigrants with criminals, terrorists, and few good people.

In response, the internet came together to instead use the hotline to report close encounters of the third kind. Some people said they were met with wait times of up to 20 minutes before they were able to get through to an operator.
But that 20 minute wait is worth it folks! New Mexico has a long and honorable tradition of alien sightings - just think Roswell. Now, thanks to the DHS, the rest of the country can join in the fun as well. Ah, I love the Estados Unidos! :D

I'm going to report all the immigrant singers who think it's fine to use playback in their live performances here like they did back in the old country. That should be a crime.

That is criminal behavior.
