Tempers Flare over ICE Resolution in Chatham


Author(s):
Abstract:
In 2009, the board of commissioners for Chatham County unanimously adopted a resolution acknowledging that undocumented immigrants live in and contribute to their communities. The resolution went on to ask the local law enforcement decline to enter into agreements with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to enforce federal immigration laws. Recent voting to rescind this resolution is causing problems associated with racial profiling, civil rights violations, and immigration concerns.
