    North Carolina outlaws sanctuary cities

    North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed a bill into law Wednesday that bans any policy that interferes with the enforcement of federal immigration laws.

    The Protect N.C. Workers Act, HB 318, reins in local and municipal policies that disregarded federal law by providing sanctuary or "safe" cities, and public benefits like food stamps, for individuals
    illegally in the U.S.

    "We cannot allow our local officials in towns and cities in North Carolina to make up their own rules that conflict with our nation's laws and our nation's values," the governor stated during the bill signing.

    The law also requires public contractors to verify a job applicant's right to work in the country through the Internet-based E-Verify program. The Federation for American Immigration Reform wrote that

    this provision will make it harder for illegal aliens to find employment, which would discourage illegal immigration and protect citizens' jobs.

    Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page and a nonpartisan group of state sheriffs attended the signing in Greensboro yesterday. Page called the bill a "win-win" for both law enforcement officers and the public.

    The Tarheel State is the first in the country to pass legislation banning the protection of illegal immigrants since Kate Steinle's murder in San Francisco by a five-time deported illegal immigrant in July.

    A number of other state legislatures have introduced bills that touch on some of these issues, but all others are still pending.
