Detention centers across North Carolina have released hundreds of illegal aliens in their custody, defying detainer requests made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Local authorities in North Carolina have released over 500 undocumented immigrants in the past 10 months. A total of 489 detainers were ignored by the state law enforcement officials, according to data provided by ICE. The ten months cover the duration of the 2019 fiscal year, which began in October of last year and ends this September.

The article goes on to state the following:

Details of the ignored detainer requests were first reported by WBTV.

“The level of criminal aliens intentionally released into Mecklenburg and the surrounding counties is alarming, but even worse is that the true extent of this dangerous trend may never be fully realized,” a senior Homeland Security official said in a statement provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “If an illegal alien is arrested for a crime and is then released by local law enforcement without ever alerting ICE officials, a lifted detainer will never be registered in our systems and the alien may only come to our attention once it’s too late.”

Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli blasted the report, tweeting Monday afternoon, “Seriously NC??? And how does protecting…
“the nearly 500 undocumented immigrants who have been released in FY19 despite a federal detainer include people charged with sex offenses, kidnapping, arson and homicide.” … keep NC safe? Oh yeah, it doesn’t.”

Jessica Vaughan of the Center For Immigration Studies said in a Twitter post, “Why on earth would the NC Governor and a couple of sheriffs want to inflict these criminal aliens on the good people of NC, when ICE is ready to remove them? ICE: Nearly 500 undocumented immigrants released from NC jails despite detainer.”
