ICE creates hotline for detainees

Posted on January 3rd, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, ICE, has launched a telephone hotline for detainees held by state or local police.

Detainees can call the toll free hotline at (855) 448-6903 if they believe they are U.S. citizens or have wrongly been accused of a crime. The number will be in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week by ICE staff with several interpreters. After prisoners call in, ICE personnel will forward their information to proper ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations offices for action.

The ICE has come under fire for allowing local police agencies to arrest suspected illegal immigrants. Under the 287(g) program, police can be deputized to turn suspects over to immigration authorities when local police are not normally allowed to enforce federal laws.
