Chatham County officials side with lawbreakers

Pittsboro, NC - I found a list of “sanctuary cities” in the US – those in which the chief of police or the city council forbids the police to ask about the immigration status of anyone who is detained for some other offense. The list includes Chatham County, as well as Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Raleigh and Winston-Salem.

Quite a list of jurisdictions taking the side of the lawbreakers against their law-abiding citizens. I suppose that some will say we should be proud that our county is standing up for the basic human right to immigrate to the US, legally or “undocumentedly”.
