RALEIGH – President Donald Trump is certainly hoping to carry the the swing state of North Carolina in 2020, and he thinks Republicans will do well there if only because of the negligence of Democrats when it comes to illegal immigration.
That, and many other reasons, is why Republicans will win North Carolina! https://t.co/m4GNvbp7oK

Indeed, many Democratic sheriffs in the Old North State have proactively pushed the North Carolina Democratic Party’s full embrace of sanctuary policies for illegal aliens. Suspending cooperation with ICE, releasing violent criminal illegal aliens back into North Carolina, and promoting the idea that woke compassion takes favor over rule of law and public safety.
The report cited by the president, though, points out that the problem is not reserved to the most public of sanctuary sheriffs; it’s all over the place.
Weeks after JW reported that the sheriff of North Carolina’s biggest county released numerous violent illegal immigrant criminals from custody, new federal stats reveal that the problem is statewide.

From Judicial Watch:
“Weeks after Judicial Watch reported that the sheriff of North Carolina’s biggest county released numerous violent illegal immigrant criminals from custody, new federal stats reveal that the problem is statewide. Nearly 500 offenders with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers have been discharged into communities throughout the Tar Heel State this fiscal year, which doesn’t end until next month so the number is likely to grow. A Charlotte news outlet obtained the latest figures from ICE, which operates under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). In the article a senior DHS source condemns North Carolina law enforcement officials, reminding them that they are obstructing federal law and endangering the American public.
So far 489 illegal aliens with ICE detainers have been discharged from North Carolina jails in the last ten months, including those charged with serious crimes such as homicide, kidnapping, arson and sex offenses. The new data does not break down which county jail the perpetrators were released from, but we know from previous disclosures that Mecklenburg County, the state’s largest, is notorious for protecting illegal aliens from the feds. […]”
Nearly 500 illegal aliens, arrested for committing crimes, in custody, with ICE requesting their detention for deportation, just wantonly released right back into our communities. It’s so nonsensical as to warrant scrutiny from immigration doves and hawks alike. The fact that Democratic leaders like Governor Roy Cooper defend such policies is a testament to just how far removed from the mainstream they have become.
And that’s exactly what the president was getting at when he predicted Republicans will win North Carolina.
