During Donald Trump's first joint address to members of congress, the president announced the creation of VOICE — Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement — an office for people to report crimes committed by undocumented people.
On Wednesday, his administration announced the opening of the VOICE office as well as the hotline to be used for citizens to report all crimes.
The plan seemingly backfired when people started calling the line to report extraterrestrial and paranormal sightings.
"There are certainly more constructive ways to make one’s opinions heard than to prevent legitimate victims of crime from receiving the information and resources they seek because the lines are tied up by hoax callers," an ICE spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. "We will adjust resources, if necessary, to ensure that the victims for whom this office and hotline is intended get the info and resources they need."
