Illegal immigrants facing charges for murder, child sex offenses, rape, drug trafficking and robbery could be released onto the streets across North Carolina due to “sanctuary” policies that shield undocumented criminals from deportation, federal authorities are warning.
The notice comes from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is stepping up its public campaign against sanctuary policies, under which cities and counties refuse to cooperate with ICE detainers. Those detainers are requests for local jurisdictions to notify ICE to an illegal immigrant’s release, and then hold onto them until authorities can take them into custody and deport them.
The article goes on to state the following:
“[W]hen local jurisdictions refuse to cooperate with federal law enforcement, they not only betray their duty to protect public safety, but force ICE to be more visible in those areas,” the agency said in a statement, asking the jurisdictions to “transfer these individuals to federal custody instead of releasing them to the community where they may reoffend.”
Fox News reporter Adam Shaw said in a Twitter post, “An ICE spokesman told Fox News this week that the agency was planning on highlighting similar cases in other sanctuary jurisdictions across the country.”
