NCDP Statement on ICE Threatening Our Immigrant Communities

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin and NC Hispanic Democrats Caucus Chair Elke Millan released the following joint statement after the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested more than 200 North Carolinians and threatened a ‘new normal’ of attacking our immigrant communities:

“North Carolina Democrats stand with our immigrant communities amid this renewed and unwarranted harassment from ICE and the Trump administration. North Carolinians made their voices loud and clear last fall by rejecting politics of fear and division and electing new officials who refused to comply with this administration’s cruel policies that rip families apart and make our communities less safe. North Carolina’s Latino community is a vibrant part of our state and North Carolina Democrats will continue to stand with them against these cruel, unwarranted attacks and threats from the Trump administration.”
