An unknown group has distributed official-looking business cards in San Antonio offering $100 to anyone who reports an “undocumented alien” who is successfully arrested and deported. A stack of these cards were discovered on top of a newstand in a San Antonio Exxon station (the person who discovered them asked to remain anonymous). The card bears the official U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement seal and the Crime Stoppers logo. And the phone number on the card? It goes straight to the Homeland Security tip line.
“That is bogus,” said Carl Rusnok, communications director for ICE’s Central Texas Region. He told the Current that fake documents similar to these have been popping up across the country in the past few months.
Apparently, the card’s creator believes the Mexican government will foot the promised bill. The card’s back asks readers to call the tip line in order “to bill the Mexican government for the life saving efforts that the American government…is forced to provide the legally challenged.”
