NC sheriff marshals opposition to Gang of 8

Via LH

A North Carolina sheriff is sounding the alarm about immigration enforcement and calling on other law enforcement officials and lawmakers to oppose the Senate immigration bill.

Rockingham Sherriff Sam Page has been a vocal opponent of the Gang of Eight’s immigration reform plan, saying it lacks a focus and real solutions to immigration enforcement.

Page, co-chair of the National Sheriffs Association’s Border Security and Immigration Committee, has taken his message to the White House, halls of Congress, and embarked on a letter-writing campaign against the legislation.

 He and nearly 40 other North Carolina sheriffs have signed onto a coalition letter against the Senate immigration bill, with Immigration and Customs Enforcement union head Chris Crane, the Citizenship and Immigration Services union head Kenneth Palinkas, and dozens of other sheriffs across the country.
