PROTECT US.
COOPERATE WITH ICE.

“Several sheriffs in North Carolina aren’t communicating with their fellow law enforcement officers about the detention of illegal immigrants accused of crimes. These sheriffs are putting politics ahead of public safety. Their failure to cooperate with immigration officials only puts more innocent people and officers in harm’s way.”

– Rep. Destin Hall

CRIMINALS AT LARGE

Numerous North Carolina Sheriffs are risking public safety to make a political statement by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials when dealing with illegal immigrants who are already incarcerated for being charged with a crime.

“Sanctuary Sheriffs” need to protect our communities.

SIGN OUR PETITION

Please sign your name if you think NC sheriffs should cooperate with federal immigration officials when dealing with illegal immigrants who are already incarcerated for being charged with a crime.

HOUSE BILL 370

House Bill 370 Require Sheriff Cooperation with ICE requires county sheriffs in North Carolina to honor and fulfill detainer requests from the federal government for illegal immigrants who are already incarcerated for being charged with a crime.

This legislation requires sheriffs’ offices to track and report the number of queries they make to federal officials under its provisions and provides a mechanism for private citizens to hold their elected Sheriffs accountable in the enforcement of federal immigration law.

State Representatives Destin Hall (R-Caldwell), Brenden Jones (R-Columbus), Jason Saine (R-Lincoln), and Rep. Carson Smith (R-Pender) sponsored House Bill 370 to protect North Carolinians and our communities from these political stunts.
