Help victims of criminal aliens
While citizens have long been victims of crime from all sides of the societal prism, The Remembrance Project seeks to educate all Americans on the unique circumstances surrounding every killing of an American by an illegal alien. Our emphasis is that when an illegal alien commits a crime against a citizen, it is the direct result of the indisputably intentional government policy to
not secure our border. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution obliges the federal government “to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions.” The government’s deliberate refusal to fulfill this duty has directly resulted in thousands of unnecessary deaths because had the killer not been in the country, the dead American would most likely be alive today.
Once the victim’s family knows about the killer’s alien status, family members sooner or later become haunted by the thought that the enabling sponsor of the killer is their own government!
The Department of Justice operates a victims’ office, offer-
ing grants to organizations in every state to provide help to crime victims. This office, while providing many excellent victims benefits and services, was never intended to fulfill the complex needs of our special group of victim survivors, which we outlined in our March 2016 letter to GOP presidential candidates.
What’s missing is a comprehensive program that assigns a court-appointed family advocate to help guide families through a complex and often biased justice system and assist them in their initial painful years of grief and adjustment.
On six occasions since last November, our group has met with top-level administration officials in the departments of Homeland Security and Justice about President Trump’s VOICE office. In the future, if invited, we will provide victimcentric program guidance to ensure that critical and timely specialized services are provided to all families victimized by illegal-alien criminals.
