Call on elected officials to condemn ICE activity in North Carolina
En Español abajo!

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is currently conducting widespread operations across North Carolina - from Charlotte to the coast. These operations include checkpoints, intimidation and monitoring of Latinx communities, a large-scale raid in Sanford, and the reported detention of dozens of North Carolinians.

These operations, which spread fear and distrust in local law enforcement, undermine the public safety of all North Carolinians.

Furthermore, ICE activities that result in the detention of family members place entire households at risk for negative financial, educational, and mental health outcomes. Separating families is unacceptable at the border and in our communities in North Carolina.

ICE’s increased presence across the state and detention of community members comes in the wake of multiple decisions by sheriffs across the state to end their collaboration with ICE in order to support public safety for all community members, including the migrant community, in their respective jurisdictions.

In the wake of this wide-scale crackdown, communities and organizations across the state are mobilizing to protect our communities and defend people’s rights. We stand together in condemning this recent wave of ICE activity that targets immigrants, disrupts local businesses, and separates families, and call on elected officials and Governor Cooper to do the same.

Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE) actualmente está conduciendo extendidas operaciones estatales -- desde Charlotte hasta la costa de Carolina del Norte. Estas operaciones incluyen paradas de tráfico, intimidación y monitorización de comunidades Latinx, una redada en Sanford, y reportadas detenciones de docenas de residentes.

Estas operaciones, cuales incitan miedo y desconfianza en la policía local, ponen en riesgo la seguridad pública de todos en Carolina del Norte.

Como consecuencia, las actividades de ICE resultan en la detención de miembros de familias, cuyos arrestos tiene resultados negativos finánciales, educacionales, y psicológicos. La separación de familias es inaceptable no solo en la frontera pero también en nuestras comunidades de Carolina del Norte.

La aumentada presencia de ICE en todo el estado y la detención de miembros de nuestra comunidad viene a raíz de la decisión tomada por múltiples alguaciles en terminar su colaboración con ICE en orden para apoyar medidas de seguridad pública para todos los miembros de la comunidad, incluyendo a los migrantes que residen en sus respectivas jurisdicciones.

Como resultado de estas acciones punitivas llevadas a cabo por ICE, comunidades e organizaciones en todo el estado se están movilizando para proteger a nuestras comunidades y defender los derechos de las personas. Unidos condenamos estas actividades de ICE contra inmigrantes que al mismo tiempo interrumpe negocios locales y separan familias. Por estas razones, le pedimos al gobernador Cooper que denuncie las acciones de ICE.
