President Trump Orders Homeland Security to Create Office for Victims of Crimes Committed by Immigrants

(AP) President Donald Trump said during his speech on Tuesday night that he's ordered the Homeland Security Department to create an office to serve American victims of crimes committed by immigrants.

Trump says the office will be called "VOICE" — short for Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement. There were audible groans and sounds of surprise from people in the audience when Trump said the name of the new office.

Trump says the U.S. must support law enforcement and support the victims of crime. He says the new office will provide a voice to people ignored by the media and "silenced by special interests."

Trump says he invited four Americans to attend the speech whose families were affected by crimes committed by immigrants in the U.S. illegally.
