How to Report Illegal Aliens
How To Report illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, employers that hire illegal aliens, smugglers, human trafficking, and immigrant gang activity.
You should only use these numbers to report suspected criminal situations. Most of these agencies offer bilingual services and allow you to make reports confidentially or anonymously. You can use these resources to report illegal aliens, report employers that hire illegal aliens, report illegal border crossings, report document and tax fraud, and other legal issues. Please keep in mind that most of our immigration enforcement agencies are under-staffed and under-funded.
Please gather as much information as possible before calling in a report. Depending on the nature of your report, you should gather as many accurate names, addresses, phone numbers, and details such as vehicle tag numbers etc. before you call. You should also make notes on times and dates of events and have this information in hand.
YOU SHOULD ONLY FILE A REPORT IF YOU HAVE REASONABLE EVIDENCE AND/OR BELIEF OF ILLEGAL ACTIVITY.

Local and State Law Enforcement
Contact information for your local and state law enforcement agencies should be listed in your local phone book. These agencies understand the local crime patterns and can provide great assistance to you. These agencies should be encouraged to do as much as they can to make sure illegal aliens that are arrested for crimes are then processed by ICE. Cracking down on illegal immigration reduces crime rates in areas where local police have taken action. These websites might help you in your search.
