RALEIGH, N.C. – In nearly party-line votes, the N.C. Senate approved SB 101 and the N.C. House approved HB 62, both proposals target our state’s immigrant communities. In the past three days, both bills were rushed through multiple committees and considered on the floors in their respective chambers.
RALEIGH, N.C. – Earlier today, the Senate Committee on Judiciary at the N.C. General Assembly gave approval to Senate Bill 101 (SB 101), an anti-immigrant “show me your papers” bill that circumvents the local authority of sheriffs by requiring them to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and assist in the federal government’s deportation pipeline or face criminal charges. SB 101 is similar to HB 370, which was vetoed by Gov. Cooper in 2019 and failed to become law.
