Incident Report: Tampa, FL

 

A flyer has been circulating in Tampa offering a reward to turn in undocumented immigrants. There’s even a Homeland Security logo and a number for Crime Stoppers. But, it is not what it appears.
“It is extremely alarming for several reasons,” said attorney Jamilla Little.
The add claims to offer a $100 reward to turn in undocumented immigrants. Little is working to help families secure legal status in the U.S.
“They are already afraid to come forward to try and get that help. These kinds of ads and these kinds of flyers and these kinds of cards put them in a position where they don’t even know who they can trust anymore. And so I think it exacerbates the situation that is really bad,” said Little.
