The Obama administration launching a new hotline for suspected illegal immigrants.
According to the US immigration and customs enforcement agency the toll free hotline was created for detainees who claim they in fact our US at US citizens.
Or believe they are the victims of a crime take a listen to what people will hear when they call a toll free number.
You have reached a law enforcement support -- line for individual subject to -- -- -- Don't believe there are United States citizen or victim or witness -- a crime.
You're called -- very important side.
If you're calling as a result of receiving an immigration the -- notice of action -- just form my GeForce seven.
I believe you are United States that -- An overload you believe they are US assistant.
Joining me now to discuss that Alan Colmes of the Alan Colmes show and Mike Gallagher a syndicated reruns of boxing -- you allies like.
And I think I am but they tell me I'm not -- -- hello President Obama.
Art galleries are -- -- this is this a good idea why.
Assess are they what's -- good -- it's called civil liberties and up for.
All of his -- -- -- in Mike's reaction I just -- them anyway let me give you some stats here 3600 United States citizens have been arrested by ice.
-- what they call -- secure communities.
More than a third of those -- -- have spouses or kids meaning it's affecting 88000 families so when we go around arresting American citizens.
And in affects American families when these people are falsely -- I would think a good conservative so called family values guy like Mike.
Would really support.
Doing something to help these families I've not been -- -- These smirk about smirking I didn't want -- area but this is a terrific I think that we should -- -- -- than not falsely arrest America's last night.
It's brilliant -- this looks and we need jobs we need to develop the home banks for shoplifters they could call and the federal government can ask whether we we could abortionists like -- a bank robbers I mean we could we -- little what they're really loud and yelling and rob and and and I that's going on now -- everything -- is this to this sums up perfectly the Obama ideology about illegal immigrants let's pay federal workers.
Just -- -- a hotline so that illegals can call and Allen knows they're not illegal workers little lives in.
Point 47 gotta -- it's 24 sevenths at the end by federal personnel ice personnel and -- -- -- trial exotic languages may.
Not 800 job isn't -- they also want it to encourage.
Illegal immigrants who believe they've been victims of a crime has definitely -- not that's right but should we really be paying that federal taxpayer money now that's a.
Or those are jobs that we're telling about the -- 3600 people.
And 88000 -- -- an effective also let me point out -- administrator -- -- Let me just point out this administrations and more than any previous administration arresting and deporting people they've had more than right lot of -- -- trying to finish Alan over the event 400% increase.
In and removing people in this country who have been here illegally since 1990.
It's primarily ordinary that it did even Allen's own numbers I'm hearing you right you're saying 3600.
People so we should launch a federal program because you know -- what what an infinitesimal number of people.
People really is Alan I don't -- outside the TVs do the other 3600 are you kidding come.
The question hears about saying is this really do you believe that might cut output -- -- do you believe that this is truly about helping.
Illegal immigrants who believe that the victims of crime or US citizens who -- -- -- they've been wrong if you know or is or is it -- reach out.
In an election season through the Latino voters to Hispanic voters.
I think it solidifies the Obama pro illegal immigration position I thought this is a way to reach out to illegals to try to help -- skirt the law could not escape the law that's what they don't know why -- that -- -- it or not on your side this administrations and more our -- -- in the previous administration this administration has that are required great and I did the award -- why illegal immigrants so how figures that you're what you're saying makes no sense that this likely.
And you know that I believe in giving credit where credit is do you -- deportations are up so that means we don't need a hotline to reach out to illegals to give them tips on how to not her record is not important.
Illegal is -- is nothing -- -- never pleasant regularly throughout the reason I ask my religion is because just practically if you're an illegal immigrant and you have been arrested even if you believe that the police officer has mistreated you.
What are the odds of you picking up look up phone and calling the federal government calling ice.
Immigration got an apartment and -- and reportedly did you don't want contact with ice this is you're an illegal immigrant or not here illegally who feel out -- -- think there's there's always.
There's -- ice says it is -- It but it's primarily going to be used by people citizens who were primarily arrested that's really the focus here and those people are gonna -- other they're more likely their constitutionally protected American right is -- is there's such a hotline for American citizens who've been incarcerated -- rumored trouble with the -- probably not enough to get we get more benefits to illegal people that we give American -- -- -- -- incarcerated -- actually gonna do you know.
Legal system and stood trial -- they've had not had a process.
I got their gloves and I feel like half an hour wheel to project that could debate yeah let's get on the phone here after you're here it -- ahead we are hearing some folks out.
