Lt. Gov. Forest's Statement on Gov. Cooper’s Veto of House Bill 370 Require Cooperation With ICE Detainers

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Today, Lt. Governor Dan Forest released the following statement:

    "Gov. Cooper has once again shown he is more concerned about protecting violent criminals who are in our state illegally than the safety and security of our citizens. This veto is shameful and jeopardizes public safety. The Governor cannot stand behind the far left's talking points on this issue. Just this year, illegal immigrants arrested for child rape, domestic abuse and other violent crimes have been released back into the public without repercussions. This complete disregard for public safety must stop."
