    NC Sanctuary County Policy In Chatham Challenged by ALIPAC

    NC Sanctuary County Policy In Chatham Challenged by ALIPAC

    January 26, 2009

    CONTACT: William Gheen, President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC
    (866) 703-0864 & WilliamG@alipac.us

    RALEIGH - A North Carolina based national organization credited with helping establish local immigration enforcement measures in NC and around the nation is moving into position to reverse the decision of Chatham County Commissioners to create the state's first "Sanctuary County" by prohibiting local police from deporting illegal aliens.

    "The recent decision by Chatham's Commissioners is an affront to state and federal laws and offensive to the majority of our state's legal citizens," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "Local police enforcing immigration laws is favored by over 80% of the public and the programs save lives!"

    ALIPAC helped pass NC laws that encourage all counties to enter the 287(g) program with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, while grass roots supporters have lobbied their local police and Sheriffs to join. The group has been active supporting and passing local immigration enforcement measures nationally.

    William Gheen of ALIPAC will be traveling into Chatham County this Tuesday night to be the guest speaker addressing local officials and citizens who are concerned about the formation of a Sanctuary County for illegal aliens. He will provide information on how grassroots efforts can reverse the decision of the commissioners.

    Members of the media and NC citizens who favor enforcement over Amnesty for illegal aliens are encouraged to attend.

    The event is being hosted by The Chatham Conservative Voice (www.tccv.org) on Tuesday, January 27, 7pm, at Virlie's Grill located at 58 Hillsboro St., Pittsboro, NC 27312

    For more information, please contact Heather Johnson of TCCV or William Gheen of ALIPAC.

    Thank You for coming William to Chatham County North Carolina, it was nice meeting you in person and getting educated on this topic. The CCV taped your visit and presentation for all to see and was quite informative. There's a stir in town (Pittsboro NC) for asking outsiders to come in. But it was the Chatham County Commissioners and Human Relations that brought in outsiders first, as the ACLU and hispanic organizations for pro amnesty groups and other human relation dt from out side our county to get this resolutoin passed. I guess it's a double standard the Commissioners place on their citizens. Now the Commissioners are going to have a ceremony for the Human Relations dt for getting this resolutoin passed. We have lost all controll of our local govt and officials. This will come back to haunt elected officals next election. But we haven't given up, we will be attending the public input meting with the Commissioners the evening of Feb 16th. They are hoping that their liberal agenda will go unnoticed, but were not going away. The CCV of Chatham County has put out alerts of the Human Relations dt activities. They feel they may step all over the voters with their liberal and irresponsible agenda. I live in Pittsboro NC and glad you came. Please continue to guide us and we'll do the work. Randy

    Here is my letter I mailed to Sherrif Webster;

    Dear Sherriff Webster,

    I live in just north of Pittsboro off old Graham. I want to voice my concern with the opposition to any participation with the Federal ICE program. I for one do not understand why Chatahm County is the only county around that actually "passed" a resolution to prevent any ICE participation, in fact it's the first time in my life I ever heard of a County making a resolutoin not to be in ICE program. It is not a emotional issue with me, just the law. We need cooperation with ICE at some level so illegal immigrants that are committing crimes our ID'ed and ability to check state and federal criminal history with the ICE technology which is paid for by the federal govt (including software and training) I myself in the nest few years will be watching closely if any Chatham citizens or children is killed by a illgal alien rather it be a homicide or a DUI fatality or child molestation. I myself would call 278 g crime prevention. I also become concerned as well as you would know to follow the money. It does catch the citizens eye that someone had a financial interest in passing this resolutoin, rather it be farming, agriculture or construction concerns. For the life of me I can not understand why this resolution was ever passed or publisized that it was in the making. Since the Chatahm Commissioners and human Relations brought in outside help to get this , we to our bring in outside help to get it reversed. I will attend the CCV meetings and William Gheer's ALIPAC group to asst use along with several other org. You have lisrted Chatham County as a sanctuary County for all to see, especially after passing a resolutoin that supports that knowledge to illegal immigrants all over the hemisphere. I am very disappointed my Sheriff and commissioners.

    Sincerely,

    Here's my letter to the Commoners:

    I want the ICE resolution "reversed". The 287g program has several "levels" of participation that local law enforcement may be part of and our community. I feel is was very rash decision to place a resolution that opposes any ICE participation and have it spread that Chatham County is now a open sanctuary for illegal immigration. I'm from southern Ca and be fully aware this information has already made it through the coyote lines of information to Mexico, Central America and South America. Coyotes make their living researching information as this and what to charge their clients to come here. The is much more money involved in this coyote run to North Carolina. It is for the safety of our community and future. The Federal govt pays for all computers, software and training. I and several other citizens have researched the ICE/287g program online and spoke with representatives at ICE. Please reconsider this resolution. I as a citizen was not made aware that this resolution was every being discussed, even though it might of been on the committee agenda, second to the last item. I also agree with the CCV that only one side of this argument was heard. We have also contacted out state representatives and Congressmen of this issue in our county.

    Sincerely

    RALEIGH, N.C. — Five North Carolina counties are joining a program to deport illegal immigrants.

    The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that eight counties helped deport more than 3,100 inmates last year.

    Orange, Harnett, Duplin, New Hanover and Buncombe counties are joining a program called Secure Communities.

    It gives jails equipment that uses inmates' fingerprints to check immigration status and criminal records and automatically alerts immigration officials.

    Well the word is getting out. I just had a total stranger call me from Siler City Amy Bloomfield a life long democrat thanking me for my response she read in the N&O article on calling out the commissioners for passing that resolutoin. She also wanted to thank the CCV fro bringing attention to this. Amy said she would not belong to any conservative group, but did give her support on this issue. She feels that we should file a Class action law suit against the county Commissioners and Sheriff Webster for passing this resolutoin without public input if they do not reverse their decision that only got input from groups like the LaRaza organization, ACLU, Outside human relation's from the counties. Praise God to the highest that people are starting to see this for what it is. Ms Bloomfield did give me permisoin to use her name on this issue.
