A group of 35 people has called on Chatham County commissioners to reconsider their votes to stop local police from checking immigration status, saying the the board voted without adequate public notice and citizen input.
"We call on the Chatham County Commission to reconsider this issue, reconsider their vote, and to do so with proper notification and public comment," William Gheen of Chatham Conservative Voice said in a press release today.
The group says Chatham commissioners voted on the immigration issue as the second to last item at a planning session. Several speakers that favor sanctuary status for Chatham County were aware of the vote and were allowed to speak, according to the press release.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) opposes the decision to bar local police from working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement because the measure is opposed by over 80 percent of American citizens, the decision will also draw more illegal aliens into Chatham County, and will result in preventable deaths and injuries of innocent citizens, the press release states.
