State of North Carolina Releases Nearly 500 Illegal Aliens from Jail: What’s Up?

Officials in the Tar Heel State are endangering the lives of innocent American citizens with these reckless actions, as this opinion writer points out

It’s high time the federal government stepped in and stopped reckless sanctuary cities and states from wreaking havoc, mayhem and harm upon the American people, in my opinion.

Case in point: North Carolina released nearly 500 dangerous illegal aliens from jail, even though these individuals had detainers from Immigrants, Customs and Enforcement (ICE).

Officials in North Carolina are willfully endangering the lives of American citizens with their treason-like actions — yet nobody is doing anything about it.

“Nearly 500 undocumented immigrants have been released from jails across the state in the past 10 months despite administrative detainers filed against them by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement,” as WBTV reported.

“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.”

The station also noted that a detainer is an “administrative request from the federal government to a local law enforcement agency to hold someone in jail even after [that person is] eligible for release” on a 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.”

Last month, North Carolina released an illegal immigrant who was arrested on rape and child sex charges.

When will these radical and anti-law and order officials be held responsible for their actions? There’s more on the story at this WBTV link.

The federal government has called out Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden for releasing dangerous criminals and not complying with ICE, but that’s just not enough.


We need to make examples of these anti-American renegades and restore law and order in our country.
