New Wake County Sheriff Releases Illegal Aliens, Invites ICE To Have Larger Presence, Make Visible Arrests

In the era of Trump, where ICE is fully allowed to do the part of their job where they detain illegal aliens, what happens when jurisdictions are sanctuary’s for illegals and/or release illegals with ICE detainers on them? Well, ICE starts operating more heavily in those jurisdiction, ends up making more visible arrests, and often ends up arresting way more illegal aliens, with lots of the so-called good ones being swept up in operations. Good move, Sheriff Baker

16 released from jail after Wake sheriff ends participation in immigration program

Since being sworn in more than a week ago, Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker has followed through on his promise to end the county’s participation in the federal 287(g) program.

Wake County had been one of only six in North Carolina that partnered with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to transfer to federal custody people who have been arrested and are believed to be in the U.S. illegally.

Baker said he made the decision not to participate in the immigration program because he wants to see difference in the trust between law enforcement and Hispanic communities.

“At this point, the sheriff is not going to be honoring those requests of detaining individuals from ICE,” legal advisor Rick Brown said.

Just two weeks after Baker was sworn in, 16 people under ICE detainers have been released after either serving their standard time or posting bond.

An additional 79 people remain in custody on state charges, but the sheriff said he will not honor those ICE detainers either.

We know nothing about any of these illegals and what their crimes were, but we start with a basic one: they are unlawfully present in the U.S., a federal offense.

ICE has gone on record responding to Baker’s stance, saying his decision will not decrease its presence in Wake County.

“In fact, residents should expect a more visible ICE presence in the Raleigh-Durham area, as ICE will now have no choice but to conduct more at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at work sites,” ICE said in a statement.

ICE also said that collateral arrests should be expected as a result of increased arrests in neighborhoods and worksites.

That is not an idle threat. It’s not a threat. It’s a promise. We’ve seen ICE do this in many areas that want to get frisky and play the “a detainer is a request, not a judge’s order, so we’ll release the illegal, regardless of what their crime is.”

Perhaps some of the illegals are the nice ones who did not do anything more than have a DUI or something. Or, perhaps they have been charged with raping a 13 year old girl. Or committed hit and run. Committed statutory rape. Had more than a pound of cocaine. How about one deported 10 times charged with rape? Those are just a few examples of illegals arrested in Raleigh. The area surrounding Raleigh is a hotbed for illegals.

Next up is Sheriff Baker, Democrats, Dem activists, and the news media whining about ICE making all sorts of very visible arrests and raids and scooping up tons of illegals.

    With newly elected Sheriffs in Guilford and Forsyth counties I expect the same thing there.

  2. Dana says:

    Now is the time for one of the Sheriff’s more patriotic deputies to simply inform ICE, via back channel, that a particular illegal immigrant will be released on a given day, so that ICE can be waiting for him, and take him into custody as he walks out the jailhouse door.

    When we have local governments breaking the law like that, it’s time for the better people lower down in those governments to take independent action.

  3. Professor Hale says:

    Sanctuary cities are irrelevant. Deportation (except to Africa) is irrelevant. As long as foreigners can simply walk back in whenever they like, these big dramas about deportations are just circus. Just ask any of those who have already been deported multiple times.

  4. […] Sheriff’s office would refuse to enforce laws Baker didn’t like. And we know from yesterday that he let 16 illegals go, with the potential to release more. Here’s one of […]
