U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole on Tuesday announced a partnership that would give local authorities the power to enforce federal immigration laws.The ACLU claims that enforcing the law could actually hinder enforcing laws. Also that this could lead to "racial profiling". The last I saw, there were not a whole lot of Norwegian looking people sneaking across the border with Mexico, and most illegal immigrants do not speak the language fluently. That would be a fair place to start. If radical Muslims are the primary perps in blowing up or purposely crashing airplanes, then we should start with those who tend to be radical Muslims. If Hispanics are the primary offenders of illegal immigration, then Hispanics are the appropriate direction from which to start enforcing immigration laws. DUH!
The partnership between North Carolina sheriffs and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made public at the N.C. Sheriffs' Association fall meeting at Carolina Beach, will give sheriff's offices around the state access to ICE resources. Exactly which resources has yet to be determined.
