    Noncitizens are embedded in North Carolina jury and voting pools, raising new questions about the integrity of elections, according to an immigration reform group. The Immigration Reform Law Institute on Monday said it had uncovered examples of noncitizens, and likely also illegal immigrants, in the pools in Charlotte, North Carolina, and other key areas dating back to 2012. Working with the Voter Integrity Project, IRLI conceded that the numbers were not enough to overturn election results but point to the lack of “political will” by government officials to clean up their rolls. Voter Integrity Project co-founder Jay Delancy said, “The...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has thousands of confiscated firearms stored in their facilities, according to Chief Kerr Putney. In an interview with WBTV anchor Molly Grantham, Putney explained why the department is keeping the confiscated guns locked behind closed doors when some of the firearms could be sold to vendors. “I don’t want to be responsible for having one of those weapons take a life here in Charlotte when we could have done something that’s within our purview because of a law enforcement reason to keep that from happening and that’s what I stand by,” said...
  • Sanctuaries to Release Illegal Immigrants Jailed for Rape, Murder, Child Molestation

    Judicial Watch ^ | November 27, 2019 | Staff
    A national crisis generated by local law enforcement agencies offering even the most violent illegal immigrants sanctuary is driving federal officials to resort to desperate measures. Under a local-federal partnership known as 287(g), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is notified of jail inmates in the country illegally so that they can be deported after serving time for state crimes. Unfortunately, a growing number of local law enforcement agencies are instead releasing the illegal aliens—many with serious convictions such as child sex offenses, rape and murder—rather than turn them over to federal authorities for removal. Judicial Watch has reported on this...

    Full title: Charlotte Observer Report Shows Half of All Weapons Offenses in North Carolina Are Dismissed: Because Cracking Down on Gun Crime Means More Non-Whites (Blacks) in Jail Criminal Justice Reform pushed by both Democrats and Republicans represents treason to the law abiding citizens of this nation, for it ensures violent criminals will be released into the public to prey upon us. We aren’t tough enough on crime in America, where violent, homicidal, convicted criminals sit on death row for decades, instead of immediately being executed to serve as a reminder “punishment must be unusual or else it serves no...

    News & Observer ^ | October 9, 2019 | J. Peder Zane
    The left’s latest charge against North Carolina Republicans is a doozy: They’re too cheap to prosecute criminals. That’s how they’re spinning a recent Charlotte Observer report that about half of all weapons charges in the state are dismissed —including 68% of cases in Mecklenburg County, 58% in Durham County and 45% in Wake County. The left’s attempt to blame the GOP rests, of course, on the idea that we can solve this — like every other problem — by spending more money. There’s some truth to this, as the Observer reports that North Carolina spends less per capita on its...

    After a North Carolina sheriff released an illegal immigrant on bond in a child rape case, former acting ICE Director Tom Homan said the law enforcement officer should have called the federal government and had the suspect detained. The suspect was finally apprehended by federal authorities, two months after Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden ignored an ICE detainer order and released him from custody. "Mecklenburg County wants to be a sanctuary county. This sheriff has made a choice to stop being a cop and be a politician," Homan said on "Fox & Friends Weekend." Homan said this is a common...

    The man arrested Friday on suspicion of mailing a dozen pipe bombs to President Trump's political enemies formerly worked as a male stripper, his former employer told the Washington Examiner. Event promoter Tony Valentine said he hired Cesar Sayoc in the 1990s to strip on multiple occasions in Ohio and that Sayoc traveled the country for similar appearances. "He really couldn't find his niche in life, and I guess he found it now," Valentine told the Washington Examiner. "Back in the '90s, he was running around from Minnesota to the Carolinas to Florida. He was like a gypsy."
