Immigration and Customs Enforcement reports that since two sheriffs in North Carolina are refusing to work with the agency, it has begun sweeping raids throughout the state and arrested 200 illegal immigrants last week alone.
Calling it the “new normal,” ICE director Sean Gallagher explained that these agency-led raids are the “direct conclusion” of local law enforcement refusing to work with the agency. Two newly elected sheriffs, representing the state’s two most populous counties, have stopped reporting the citizenship status of those they apprehend in an effort to strangle the federal agency.
The Charlotte Observer reported:
Since December, newly elected sheriffs in the state’s two most populous counties — Mecklenburg and Wake — have reversed a policy that notifies ICE about the legal status of inmates in county jails. The Durham County Sheriff’s Office also ended the practice of honoring ICE detainers.
These changes, Gallagher said, have given the agency “no choice” but to conduct targeted enforcement across the state this week. “This is politics over public safety at its worst.”
Last week, ICE detained over 200 illegal immigrants in North Carolina during their sweeping raids, and discovered another 25 during an unrelated raid.
Pledging to end all cooperation with ICE, newly elected Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker doubled down on his promise when sworn in last year.
The News Observer reported:
“We serve a lot of communities,” Baker said as he stood next to Uriel Rodriguez, a middle school student he met while campaigning. “We want to make it so that the Wake County Sheriff’s Office treats everybody the same and improves the quality of life for each and every person. It’s about humanity. It’s about just caring for people. That’s a large part of what this office will be doing, moving forward.”
Apparently Baker and the other North Carolina sheriffs elected on similar platforms failed to realize that his agency’s refusal to enforce federal law due to its love of “caring for” illegal immigrants would simply result in federal enforcement of already existing laws.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE
CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.
Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.
According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.
It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.
Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.
Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.
— Mayor Eric Garcetti (@MayorOfLA) February 15, 2020
If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.
Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
