Immigration and Customs Enforcement reportedly shut down a hotline that allowed detained immigrants to make toll-free calls to an organization connecting them with free lawyers after that hotline was featured on a popular television show, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The hotline was run by an organization called Freedom for Immigrants, which had operated the hotline since 2013. Certain phone numbers are given special extensions by the phone service provider, Taltom Communications, so detainees can make free calls. All other calls cost money to make.
