The 165th Evista Francesa Immigrata Registry is a database of people who have been removed from the United States by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It was created to help identify, locate, and serve orders of removal by federal immigration law enforcement officers. The database contains records of all removable aliens removed by U.S. Immigration enforcement, as well as details about those orders. It is a comprehensive and interactive tool for researchers, attorneys, families, children, employers, and public agencies. In addition, the registry helps victims of crime, witnesses of crime, and targeted individuals with special needs find help.
According to the officials, the goal of the enforcement activities of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is to ensure that the country’s immigration laws are not abused and criminals do not overstay in the country. However, many immigrants who overstay or who are in the country illegally do not fall within the definition of criminal aliens. The public relations efforts include posting signs, publishing information, conducting informational pick-ups, and sending out press releases. The information provided will help those who are eligible to apply for and receive assistance in securing their legal status in the United States.
In light of the recent natural disaster in Louisiana, the authorities made an effort to increase communications between the public and emergency services. An advertisement was placed in the National newspaper, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and other media. The public can contact the Enforcement Support Services at the nearest location. A map was also posted online, which will guide the public to specific locations for service locations. The Enforcement Support Services has also formed a committee to plan short-term and long-term projects to enhance public safety and security, to assist local and state recovery, and to coordinate community outreach and promotion.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, illegal immigrants did not feel safe returning to their home country. Some escaped to the United States illegally, while others remained. Evidently, many did not apply for refugee status. Immigration laws are in place to protect individuals from persecution and war. The United States government does not allow entry into the country of citizenship for illegal aliens.
As an immigrant, an advocate for the rights of all immigrants, I am troubled by the failure to enforce the laws regarding immigration and its enforcement. This is a very disturbing trend that is having a detrimental effect on public safety and security. Recently, the Enforcement Services held a meeting with representatives from the community and the media to discuss how enforcement can better be promoted to the general public. The meeting resulted in several public relations campaigns being disseminated.
The public relations and community engagement activities will continue until all enforcement activities are taken over by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Services. In the mean time, the community must find ways to support the victims and families of crimes committed by illegal aliens. Immigration enforcement is a critical service that plays a vital role in protecting the public safety. However, many advocates for immigrants have called for more aggressive public relations campaigns to be conducted to promote greater enforcement of the existing law.
