In the past 10 months, detention centers across North Carolina have released hundreds of illegal aliens in their custody, defying detainer requests made by ICE.
Some the charges against the released illegal aliens included homicide, kidnapping, arson and sex offenses.
Seriously NC??? And how does protecting…
“the nearly 500 undocumented immigrants who have been released in FY19 despite a federal detainer include people charged with sex offenses, kidnapping, arson and homicide.” … keep NC safe? Oh yeah, it doesn’t.https://t.co/gay5NiKgFY

Nearly 500 undocumented immigrants have been released from jails across the state in the past ten months despite administrative detainers filed against them by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
WBTV obtained new data compiled by ICE outlining the figures. The data covers Fiscal Year 2019, which began in October 2018 and runs through next month.
According to the data, 489 detainers were declined by law enforcement.
A detainer is an administrative request from the federal government to a local law enforcement agency to hold someone in jail even after they are eligible for release on their state charge.
A detainer is often used by ICE to keep undocumented immigrants in jail because removal from the country is a civil action and not a criminal matter.
The debate over whether local authorities should cooperate with ICE detainers has raged this year after Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden announced he would no longer honor ICE detainers. More
Why should any jurisdiction that does not honor federal filings or abide by federal law receive any federal money?
Isn’t it high time we stopped releasing illegal foreign nationals into our communities, our schools, our churches,
to prey upon our wives, our children, our families & friends??

Here’s the ICE ERO data:
We need to figure out a way to stop using detainers and instead use federal arrest warrants. They can’t ignore an arrest warrant.

And wonder how many of those illegals will migrate to Virginia, South Carolina or Tennessee? Not only hurting own state citizens, but other states, too!
