CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested hundreds of people living without documents in North Carolina last week, according to the Charlotte Observer.
The spike in arrests comes after major counties in the state severed ties with ICE.
According to the Charlotte Observer, ICE Regional Director Sean Gallaghar said, This is the direct conclusion of dangerous policies of not cooperating with ICE. This forces my officers to go out onto the street to conduct more enforcement.
About 200 people were detained in North Carolina. Gallaghar said the arrests could continue if ICE is not allowed to access county jails.
Mecklenburg and Wake counties used to notify ICE of the legal status of inmates until new sheriffs reversed the policies in December.
The Durham County Sheriffs Office similarly stopped honoring ICE detainers.
Charlotte City Council Member Braxton Winston said to reporters he was told by ICE official Robert Alfieri that these arrests are the new normal, blaming Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden for not cooperating.

If they were working, they probably had documents. Someone else’s documents
Driving into Durham with all the ads on businesses in Spanish makes me think I am in South America rather than in the Southern United States
Does it send a strong enough message to all 57 states?
Go get every one of those sons of bitches. And thanks for doing a thankless job for us. MAGA and illegal alien free.
If ICE visits any of the dozen huge apartment construction sites around Durham and a few landscaping employers, they would have far more than their quota of arrests.
You’re kidding right?
They work off the books and restaurant and construction companies that use them don’t care if they don’t know their real first names.
As for ...people living without documents...
They are not people living without documents.
If I lost my license and birth certificate I’d be a person living without documents.
They are ILLEGAL ALIENS.
What the hell was the other normal, reporter?
If any hombre wants to appropriate my SSN,
much obliged. Just keep the money flowing in.
I wish ice would raid pelosis vinyards
ICE could collect a village of illegals if they visited Wake Forest Rd or South Saunders in Raleigh.
So long as you don’t need good credit and don’t mind a few credit cards in your name, so be it.
The population of Siler City is about half illegals.
Is a SSN all it takes to get a credit card? I haven’t applied for one in forty years, so I couldn’t say.
These sheriffs won’t aid or work with federal ICE agents, but wait till a tornado or hurricane or disaster hits...They’ll be crying and screaming for federal aid and help....
Do you live in Siler City too?
“...Driving into Durham with all the ads on businesses in Spanish makes me think I am in South America rather than in the Southern United States...”
Come to south Texas. English is the second language. Tv, newspapers, shopping. ...you name it vato.
Last week, there were ICE raids in Sanford, just down the road. When Bear Creek Arsenal was cleaned out, all the Mexican restaurant/coyote fronts closed down too.
I was stopped at an ICE checkpoint on I-10 yesterday east of El Paso and asked if I was a US citizen. Every vehicle was stopped and they were running drug dogs by all of them.
