    Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, NC Focus Camapign*

    Synopsis

    1/22/2007 Mecklenburg County is participating in the 287(g) immigration enforcement program. Also, the city of Charlotte and Mecklenburg have formed a joint task force to study the effects of illegal immigration and the reports are completed and are being evaluated.

    Mecklenburg County commissioners are trying to revive a hot-button debate on proposals to crack down on illegal immigrants and companies that hire them.

    October 17th
    Mecklenburg County Commissioners will be addressing the following issue.
    Mecklenburg's DWI treatment court is accepting illegal immigrants and some of them may be avoiding deportation because of it.

    ...Mecklenburg's DWI treatment court officials talk about sending suspected illegal immigrants to treatment centers, so they don't go to jail and have their immigration status checked.

    The DWI treatment court is an intense, 12-month voluntary program for people convicted of drunken driving at least twice. It requires substance abuse treatment, drug testing and frequent meetings with a judge, probation officer and case coordinator.
    Oct. 18
    Mecklenburg County commissioners Tuesday asked the sheriff to check the immigration status of participants in the county's DWI treatment court and determine whether the program is serving illegal immigrants.

    Board members also unanimously asked County Manager Harry Jones to investigate the issue, together with an advisory group of city, county and criminal justice officials, and report back to the board.
    Nov. 3, 2006 - Passed and using 287g Program
    Mecklenburg County has recently become more focused on identifying illegal immigrants at the jail. Ten sheriff's deputies and two sergeants have been trained by immigration and customs enforcement to identify, question and deport illegal immigrants...Not all illegal immigrants will be deported. Authorities say that's decided on a case-by-case basis.

    Nov. 3
    The Mayor?s Immigration Study Commission is in the final stages of drafting immigration policy recommendations in four key areas for the city of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.

    Jan. 22, 2007 Immigration Study Report has been Completed

    Got this reply today. Doesn't seem like she's on our side at all.

    Dear Ruth

    Thank you for your letter. I understand your frustration. Unfortunately, this issue is more complex than merely sending people home, which in itself costs the government thousands of dollars per person. We are waiting to hear from a task force that has studied this issue before we make any decisions, but your views will be taken into consideration.

    Received this reply today...........

    You may be aware that Republican commissioners proposed action to combat illegal immigration locally last December, but our proposal was defeated on a party-line vote. We are trying again October 17 with a specific program -- the DWI Court -- in which we are informed illegals are being given safe haven.

    Don't know if you are a local, but Republicans proposed an illegal immigration reform measure last Dec. It was defeated on a party-line vote.
