How To Report Illegal Aliens

continues to be one of our
most popular features – but report them to DHS, not to
him or us!

Welcome to the

web site
for the Department of Homeland Security.
Here`s what you`ll find:

Illegal aliens can figure out how to file for

employment authorization

You can read the


Secretario Ridge
in Spanish.

But there is still no way for the law-abiding
Americans to

illegal aliens and

criminal alien
residents online.

The dreaded INS may be gone, but the INSanity lives
on. So how can you do your

patriotic duty
and report illegal aliens?

As I previously

, the Federal Bureau of Investigation
provides an online

TIPS form
to report all types of criminal activity.
Though the FBI does not specifically solicit reports
about illegal aliens and deportable criminal alien
residents, it wouldn`t hurt to inform the G-Men about
any violations of federal statutes.

Contrary to popular belief,

immigration law
violators are not only deportable,
but they can also be prosecuted by

United States Attorneys
for federal immigration


So by all means, keep the FBI informed through the
internet. Use the

TIPS form

In contrast, the DHS still hasn`t discovered online
forms, or even e-mail, as a way for reporting illegal
aliens. With Ridge at the helm of DHS, the components of
the former I.N.S. are separated into three divisions:

  • “see no evil” (Bureau of Customs and Border

  • “hear no evil” (Bureau of Immigration and Customs

  • “speak no evil” – the alien-friendly (Bureau of
    Citizenship and Immigration Services—BCIS)
    “customer service” division.

There is still no central telephone number to call to
report aliens. However, there is a new BICE division
number for

the 10 most-wanted criminal aliens. The
phone number—(800) BE–ALERT or (800) 232-5378—doesn`t
even reach nationwide! (However, the recorded voice has
a Spanish accent.) Still, if you`re lucky enough to be
in the calling area, why not report all illegal
aliens and criminal alien residents to (800)
BE-ALERT—not just the ten with their.

on the web.

For a local telephone number, find a field office in
your area. All three web sites—BCBP, BICE and BCIS—point
back to the same list of BCIS

field offices
of the former INS districts. The
“districts and sub-office” pages for both the


divisions link back to this same


Many of the field office don`t even list phone
numbers. None list e-mail addresses.

But leave
it to

private initiative
to solve the problem. Glenn

American Patrol
provides a list of

phone numbers
for former INS district offices that
now have BICE investigations divisions.

American Patrol also

contacting the

Internal Revenue Service
criminal investigations
division at (800) 829-0433 for tax fraud issues.

The U.S. Border Patrol has a

listing of Sectors to call, most with
contact numbers. But the most convenient Border Patrol
page is a

of nine Sector numbers along the Mexican

Although the

of the page is to “Report A Missing
Person Suspected Of Falling Victim To

Dangers Along The
“—you can call these offices to

illegal aliens in the border area. The
numbers still ring at Border Patrol.

If there is no Border Patrol office nearby, as I

previously—when making a call to report an
illegal alien, look up the nearest

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.

For Social Security fraud, contact the

Office of Inspector General
hotline at (800)

Unfortunately, the folks at and
do not have any magic powers when
it comes to reporting illegal aliens. So if you want to
work online, please send aliens` names and addresses to

FBI online form
instead—not to us.

But any suggestions on improving our

on reporting illegal aliens and criminal
alien residents will be much appreciated.

We are a long way from the

Operation Wetback
-type mass deportation of illegals
that America now

desperately needs.
But reporting illegals is a first

Remember, by law any report you make to the
government must be noted and filed. Which may not seem
much. But to government bureaucrats, it means that, one
day, they might be held responsible.
