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.
