North Carolina Sanctuary Cities Have Freed 500 Criminal Illegal Aliens

North Carolina sanctuary cities have released an astounding 500 criminal illegal aliens back onto the streets according to federal immigration officials.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has revealed the shocking degree to which sanctuary cities are protecting these criminal illegal aliens from deportation.

This is in violation of federal immigration laws.

“Across North Carolina, local authorities refused to honor more than 500 detainers for foreign nationals during Fiscal Year 2019,” ICE officials wrote in a statement. “All of these detainer refusals are of persons criminally arrested by a law enforcement agency for a criminal offense beyond their violation of federal immigration law.”

As Breitbart News reported, up to 80 percent of criminal illegal aliens freed back into American communities by sanctuary jurisdictions go on to commit more crimes, an ICE official confirmed in congressional testimony.

“When aliens walk out the front of the jail that could have been handed over to [ICE] for removal proceedings, they have the opportunity to commit additional crimes,” ICE official Timothy Robbins said. “What we’ve seen, and depending on the report you look at, anywhere from 40 to 80 percent of those who have committed crimes will re-offend.”
