Illinois Debuts Illegal Alien Help Hotline

Respect for the rule of law takes yet another hit.

A new hotline being unveiled Monday aims to help illegal immigrants clear up confusion about deportation.

Modeled after those for the homeless or victims of domestic violence, the “first-in-nation” crisis hotline will serve callers 24 hours a day. It launches Monday afternoon at Jane Addams Hull House.

Volunteers will take calls and direct people facing deportation to lawyers and social service agencies by asking them a checklist of questions to help determine the right course of action.

It’s paid for via private donations. For now.
