NCGOP Launches Petition Urging Roy Cooper to Support Ending Sanctuary Cities | Eastern North Carolina Now

News Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     The North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) today held a press conference in front of the attorney general's office and launched a petition asking North Carolinians across the state to urge Attorney General Roy Cooper to support ending sanctuary cities in North Carolina.

    Last week, Hillary Clinton attacked a bill that would end sanctuary cities in North Carolina and urged Governor McCrory to veto the bill, but Roy Cooper has not yet taken a stance or said if he thinks the governor should sign or veto the bill.

    "As North Carolina's chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Roy Cooper has a duty and swore an oath to enforce the law, and that includes our immigration laws," said NCGOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse. "Roy Cooper has been North Carolina's top cop for 14 years, but has been completely silent on this issue, which is directly affecting state government, municipal elections and law enforcement communities across the state. Will he live up to his responsibility and support a bill that will end sanctuary cities and uphold the rule of law in our state, or will he stand with President Obama, Hillary Clinton and illegal immigrants over North Carolina and tell Governor McCrory to veto this bill? North Carolinians deserve to know."


        •  The General Assembly passed H.B. 318, a bill to end sanctuary cities in North Carolina and cease allowing local governments from preventing the enforcement of the law, and sent it to the governor's desk.

        •  Democrat Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton attacked this bill and urged Governor McCrory to veto the bill. Governor McCrory tweeted that he will not buckle under pressure from Hillary Clinton.

        •  Attorney General Cooper refused to represent North Carolina in a lawsuit challenging President Obama's illegal executive order granting millions of illegal immigrants legal status with a stroke of a pen. Governor McCrory joined other states and sued to halt the implementation of that executive order.

        •  Attorney General Cooper wrote a January 2013 opinion stating that illegal immigrants who qualify for the new federal deferred action status are also entitled to apply for state-issued driver's licenses.
