    How To Report Illegal Aliens - Updated DHS Version!
    By Juan Mann

    With all this hoopla about homeland security, why isn't there a "Terrorism Information and Prevention System" that Americans can really use? Why not start reporting illegal aliens and criminal alien residents?

    Illegal aliens are subject to deportation at any time. Their very presence violates federal law.

    Lawful permanent resident aliens that is, anyone with a "green card" also can become deportable if they are convicted of certain crimes. These criminal alien residents can lose their permanent resident status and be deported right along with the illegal aliens and non-immigrant visa overstayers if the proper authorities only knew about them.

    The new Department of Homeland Security is the proper authority to whom to report the presence of


    illegal aliens,


    non-immigrant visa violators, and


    green card holders who have been convicted of crimes.

    The DHS has background information on reporting "suspected illegal aliens or suspected illegal immigration activity." For now, this link sends you right back to the former Immigration and Naturalization Service field offices, now part of the DHS' service-oriented Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services - BCIS.

    Though it looks like BCIS took over the INS web site, all the law enforcement agents are still at the former INS field offices anyhow, since no new facilities sprang up overnight when the INS left the Department of Justice on March 1, 2003.

    The law enforcement components of the former INS are now called the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement BICE (field offices) and the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection BCPS (field offices).

    To report an illegal alien, look up the nearest existing field office and ask for the (BICE) Investigations Division or the "Enforcement Office." If you cannot speak with a Special Agent from the Investigations Division, ask to speak to a Deportation Officer from the Detention and Removal unit. Make a report over the phone or go in person.

    You are performing a vital public service by doing this. Officers in these divisions are obligated by law to make a written record of your report.

    The groups U.S Border Control and illegalalien.net also list ex-INS field office contact numbers.

    If you live in a border area roughly, within 50 miles of the border - you have the better option of reporting the presence of illegal aliens to the nearest BCBP or Border Patrol field office. You can either call or go in person.

    If there is no Border Patrol station listed nearby, contact the nearest Sector Office to find out if there is a local sub-station that is not listed on the web site.

    Like the former INS, the Department of Homeland Security still doesn't have a way to report illegal aliens over the internet. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation does!

    Thanks to a recent delegation of authority by Attorney General John Ashcroft to the FBI Director, all Special Agents of the FBI now have the power to enforce immigration law.

    So send your internet tips to the FBI on https://tips.fbi.gov/ or contact them the old-fashioned way, by calling or writing one of the FBI field offices.

    (The DHS has a guide for how to "report a missing person suspected of falling victim to dangers along the border." This public service is part of the "border safety initiative" of its alien-friendly BCIS - proving that the BCIS already is living up to its legacy as the reincarnation of all the INS "customer service" bureaus.)

    Illegal aliens and criminal alien residents might be up to some type of fraud against the Social Security system too. For them, false documents are a way of life. The Office of Inspector General of the Social Security Administration operates a fraud hotline for reporting misuse of social security cards and false statements on claims whether by employers or employees.

    Prosecuting Social Security fraud has been used successfully to tie-up terrorist suspects, even if they are not illegal aliens. Report criminal violators to the FBI for prosecution by the U.S. Attorney.

    Though it has been accused of giving cover to illegal aliens through tax ID numbers, the Internal Revenue Service also accepts citizen reports on general tax fraud including "earned income tax credit" abuse. The IRS' criminal investigation division handles employment tax fraud reports.

    The Department of Health and Human Services maintains a hotline for reporting Medicare or Medicaid fraud, child non-support, AFDC fraud, and abuse of related programs.

    Also, believe it or not, all male illegal aliens (as well as male permanent resident aliens, ages 18 through 25) must register with the Selective Service System. If they do not register, they can be prosecuted for a felony and fined up to $250,000 and/or be put in jail for up to five years. They also may not then be eligible for U.S. citizenship.

    And there are state penalties for failing to register. Selective Service registration is conveniently available in Spanish. Report draft registration violators to the FBI for prosecution by the U.S. Attorney.

    What will the DHS actually do when you call?

    It will take the information down, as it is legally obligated to do....and quite probably not much else.

    It may get interested in a criminal alien, an alien that's the subject of some other type of investigation - for example an Arab terrorist, an alien smuggler - or an alien who has been deported before.

    Non-criminal aliens might be sent a letter by the Deportation and Removal section, saying, in effect, "Dear Mr. Alien, you have been already ordered removed by an immigration judge, or we know you have overstayed your status, please come in to the office to be deported, bring one bag." (These are known as "run letters," for obvious reasons.) But even this doesn't always happen.

    But none of this should make any difference to VDARE.COM readers. Your report will be on record. The government will know about it and will know we know it knows about it.

    The Chinese say a journey of a thousand miles must start with one step. Americans can start regaining control of their borders - and of their nation's destiny with one phone call.

    Who will work at your candy stores and news stands. These jobs start 4 am and no American can do it with as little as $5 per hour. Think about it logically.

    $5.00 an hour working at a candy store is far, far below the poverty level, and no one working there could afford health insurance. Who is going to pay the doctor and/or hospital bill for the immigrant who works for such an impossible living wage and has an accident or gets sick? What is that immigrant contributing to this country when his wages barely allow him to survive? That's why American taxpayers have to bear the burden and that's why they're getting tired of it.

    Angie, Your comment above is straw grasping. I read your earlier posts and can understand your wanting to lash out. You see people saying things about illegals and as you are married to one , you take it personally. No one has anything against your husband or others personally. But as you said befor, you know some that are bad and you know some that are good. The problem is they are ALL breaking at least one of our laws. You sound like a fine woman Angie, who only wants whats best for her family. And as a woman and a mother , I understand that. And you made an interesting point in a post that said your husband is paying taxes and SS and so forth. How is he doing that?? If he is not here legally he cannot be paying into the system under his own name.Which means he either has phony documents or is working under someone elses name . Which means he has broken FEDERAL law.And if you have a child and have used the earned income tax credit and recieved a refund, he is commiting theft against the US government.Is this really how you want to live your life. ? And it can only get worse. People are beginning to make a big deal out of all the money this is costing us. When the economy was OK noone was saying much. That has changed and will get much worse. What are you going to tell your child?? By the time they are old enough to understand , things will be even worse.And if by some twist of fate you could avoid detection and deportation, what happens when you are too old to work?? There won't be any SS there for your husband. That is another thing people are starting to worry about. All the illegals will become an even larger burden on this country a few years down the road. And I think you must be worried about all this a little or I wonder why you are on this site. You must be aware of the American citizens growing resentment for the burden this is causing us. I live in California, and it feels like a second civil war is coming there. I know Oregon is away from it all ,but it will catch up. Here is something to think about Angie. In California there are MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS than there are PEOPLE in the entire state you live in.almost twice as many really sa they believe it is close to 7 million. That is seven million people breaking our laws in just one state Angie. We are a country of laws. We cannot allow this to continue. I wish you the best Angie. I have nothing against you or your family. But I love my country. I can't say that this is OK.

    anni I tend to disagree with some of what you posted.

    "The problem is they are ALL breaking at least one of our laws."
    First of all, what do we do about it now?

    "How is he doing that??"

    "If he is not here legally he cannot be paying into the system under his own name.Which means he either has phony documents or is working under someone elses name . Which means he has broken FEDERAL law.And if you have a child and have used the earned income tax credit and recieved a refund, he is commiting theft against the US government.Is this really how you want to live your life?"

    I can assure you, anni, that nobody chooses to live this way. Many people find themselves in anni's place. Doesn't it make more sense to have a program that allows these people to pay taxes and come out of hiding?


    "When the economy was OK noone was saying much."

    EXACTLY. When the economy is good, nobody says anything, but when the economy is bad they blame illegal immigrants? If a person is going to blame illegal immigrants for our bad economy, why don't they also blame them for our good economy!!?

    "What are you going to tell your child?? By the time they are old enough to understand , things will be even worse."

    My friends and distant relatives have told their children, and have proven to their children, that they are hard working people, providers, and love their children. The children will understand that, in my cases, they came to this country out of sheer poverty and wanted a better life for their children. (Again, doesn't make it right to break our laws, just a reason why they do it, and I don't condone it either.)

    "And if by some twist of fate you could avoid detection and deportation,"

    It doesn't take a twist of fate to avoid being deported, just behave oneself.

    "I live in California, and it feels like a second civil war is coming there."

    What part of California do you live in? I'm from southern California and have no idea what you talking about?


    "In California there are MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS than there are PEOPLE in the entire state you live in.almost twice as many really sa they believe it is close to 7 million."

    Anni, are you talking about people who entered without inspection, visa overstayers, or both?

    "We cannot allow this to continue. I wish you the best Angie. I have nothing against you or your family. But I love my country. I can't say that this is OK."

    We can't allow this to continue, that is right. What do we do? You went into a great deal about immigrant this and immigrant that, but what is your solution?

    THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY DEFENSE AND CORRECTING A LOT OF "SUPPOSED FACTS" THAT ARE MERELY OPINIONS OF SOME.


    IN CORRECTION OF ONE STATEMENT. HE CANNOT BE PAYING INTO THE SYSTEM.

    YES HE WORKS WITH A FALSE SSN. THEY DO TAKE OUT ALL FORMS OF TAXES INCLUDING MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY. NEITHER OF US CLAIM THE EARNED INCOME CREDIT AS WE ARE OVER INCOME AND ILLEGALS CANNOT CLAIM THE CREDIT IT DOES NOT WORK. IT WILL BE DENIED. (ANOTHER COMMON MISCONCEPTION)

    AS FOR BREAKING THE LAW. IT IS NEVER RIGHT BUT MOST USC'S DO IT FREQUENTLY BUT JUST NEVER GET CAUGHT. I.E. SPEEDING, DUII, TAX FRAUD, DRUGS, ETC. DOES THAT MEAN THAT THEY SHOULD NEVER BE FORGIVEN.

    ONCE AGAIN ALSO I WILL COMMENT THAT I MAY BE CONFUSED WITH ANOTHER "ANGIE" THAT LASHES OUT ON THIS BOARD. I DON'T FEEL RESENTFUL OF PEOPLE WHO ARE AGAINST IMMIGRATION. EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION AS WELL AS I.

    Most "illegal" immigrants are law abiding except for crossing the border without papers.
    They do jobs that US citizens refuse to do. They contribute greatly to this country.
