Sheriff Chipp Bailey is RIGHT! The 287g program protects the community and should be mandatory across the country!

THANK YOU Mecklenburg County!

Just wonder how many of these protesters take advantage of food stamps, WIC, rental assistance, food banks, driving without a license or use a fake or stolen identity for employment, etc.?
The law is the law for every resident of Mecklenberg Cty., and what these people are promoting anarchy for their own benefit and the benefit of their illegal relatives.
This train of pseudo-righteousness has got to stop.

They should also deport the 100 people who are protesting.

As I type this, I watch the illegals go thru our trash in the alley. They're taking aluminum cans and other metal to sell.

For one, my city picks these up and sells them. If helps to fund our trash pickup.

So illegals come here and STEAL...and then they'll say that they're doing a job no one else will do!

Steal my trash and cause my trash rates to go up.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sick of these people!!!!!!!!!!

Immigration decisions belong with the federal govt. So, the Sheriff is correct to report all illegal residents and let INS decide to hold them or release them.
