WASHINGTON, D.C. – Governor Roy Cooper’s senseless veto of House Bill 370, legislation requiring local law enforcement to cooperate with ICE in detaining illegal immigrants arrested for crimes so federal immigration laws can actually be enforced, has caught the eye of the President of the United States. President Donald Trump has made fighting illegal immigration a focus of his administration from the beginning, and Democrats like Cooper have been fighting tooth and nail against law and order purely out of spite.
Trump tweeted this weekend about Cooper’s “terrible decision.”
North Carolina Governor Cooper Vetoed a Bill that would have required Sheriffs to cooperate with Ice. This is a terrible decision for the great people of North Carolina. He should reverse his decision and get back to the basics of fighting crime!

The chances of Cooper returning to the “basics” of the rule of law and securing public safety are exceedingly low as we approach 2020. The governor has made it clear through out his term on Blount Street that when given a choice between common sense and Leftist dogma, he will defer to the ‘Canon of Woke.’
That should set the table for more Trump trolling of our Democratic governor as the former works to win the Old North State in 2020 and help Republicans like Dan Forest return our State to its ‘First in Freedom’ ethos in the process.
