Voted YES on requiring sheriffs to cooperate with ICE
The case of the Honduran man was the most recent of several that prompted North Carolina's Republican-controlled state Legislature to pass a bill requiring local sheriffs to honor ICE detainers. Cooper vetoed the bill last week. State law enforcement
officials opposed Cooper's veto, as did President Donald Trump. Cooper said the legislation, House Bill 370, would drain resources from local law enforcement.
Governor's Veto Message:
This legislation is using fear to divide North Carolina. Current law allows the state to jail and prosecute dangerous criminals regardless of immigration status. This bill, in addition to being unconstitutional, weakens law enforcement in
North Carolina by mandating sheriffs to do the job of federal agents.
Legislative outcome: Passed Senate 25-18-7 on June 24; passed House, 62-53-5 on Aug. 20; Rep. Grange voted YES; vetoed by Gov. Cooper on Aug 21.
