Charlotte Mayor: No one should be deported for merely having a broken tail light

Mayor of Charlotte, NC.

A week after community activists accused Charlotte leaders of ignoring concerns of immigrants, Mayor Jennifer Roberts has issued a statement saying she is “concerned” about a series of federal arrests involving of immigrants living illegally in the city.

Roberts’ stopped short of condemning the arrests, but suggests U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has not been giving “accurate” and “timely” information to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police about their activities. And she asks that ICE refrain from making arrests “near” houses of worship and schools.

She did not specify an acceptable distance in the statement, which was released in an email and posted on Facebook.

ICE currently has a policy against arresting undocumented immigrants at schools, churches, hospitals and protests. To date, no one in the city has supplied proof the agency has violated that policy.

“I believe that no one should be deported for merely having a broken tail light,” Roberts said in the statement, alluding to rumors ICE agents were arresting undocumented immigrants for insignificant offenses.

“I’m concerned by the recent actions of agents of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency that have brought fear and chaos to our families and our Charlotte community…From our federal authorities, I request assistance in keeping our community safe. Our community is less safe for everyone when immigrants are afraid to report crimes or testify as witnesses to crimes.”

An ICE spokesman declined Tuesday to comment on Roberts’ statement, noting data released by the agency Monday explained the nature of the arrests, including the fact that those taken into custody have a criminal background and some had been previously deported.

It remains unclear exactly how many people ICE has arrested in the city in the past week, but ICE said Monday that it had arrested nearly 100 people in both Carolinas. Immigrant advocates believe as many as 21 people have been arrested in Charlotte. ICE has declined to contradict that number.

None of those arrested were put into deportation proceedings over a cracked tail light, officials say. In fact, those arrested in the Carolinas were “immigration fugitives, re-entrants and at-large criminal aliens,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement release states.

Among those picked up in the Charlotte-area was an immigrant convicted on three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, the release states. That person had previously been removed to Mexico before re-crossing the border.

Rumors and social media posts have suggested for days the ICE arrests were indiscriminate, including road blocks and raids in immigrant neighborhoods, which ICE has denied.

Charlotte immigrant activists held a press conference Friday and accused city and county officials of being silent as rumors swirled of the ICE arrests. The activists threatened to take out their frustration out during upcoming elections. Mecklenburg County has 30,000 Latinos who are qualified to vote, activists say.

Many of the rumors have proven false, including a belief among advocates that CMPD was supplying ICE agents with warrants needed to conduct roadblocks. Immigrant advocates later admitted that was unfounded.

In her statement, Roberts notes that CMPD does not enforce federal immigration laws or profile community members based on their immigration status. “Our CMPD officers will work with federal authorities and with our immigrant and refugee community to solve crimes and keep violent criminals out of our communities.”

    Deportation would come from being here illegally… with perhaps a broken tail light.

      Or without a broken tail light. I don’t much care. Being here illegally is cause enough. That IS a crime. A broken tail light is not a crime. It may be a traffic violation, but it certainly is not a felony, or even a misdemeanor.

      What idiots elected her in the first place? Didn’t she take an oath?

      People in America illegally shouldn’t have a driver’s license. I don’t understand why liberals can’t grasp the concept of “illegal”. Blaming deportation on a broken tail light is so typical of the way liberals think.

      If police stop a murderer or robber with a broken tail light, and the police discovered that fact during the traffic stop, wouldn’t you expect them to be arrested? Different crime but same situation.

      I agree, wisbob, being stopped for the broken tail-light is simply the last in a string of illegal actions. Here in CA illegal migrants were granted the DL a year or two ago. But in many states that’s not the case. In the latter case they’re driving without a license and should be cited for that as well as the tail-light. That should be followed with inspection of a person’s history and a report to ICE. We’ve been coddling those folks for too long. Come on. I taught English to those individuals for years. a majority spent years having kids and buying cars and houses rather than investing in legal assistance to become legal. Now they’re freaked because the bill has come due? They’re not kids, for goodness sake. “I need my car to get to work.”, is the whine. No, I had to take the bus to work for several months while saving to repair my engine and so can they. That mayor is feeding into the problem of an appalling lack of accountability by the undocumented- shame on her. Doesn’t she think they’re adults who are capable of being responsible? Shame on her.

      EXACTLY! I am personally sick and tired of these Liberal / Progessive (and too many GOP as well) Politicians, pundits and what nots telling me that the USA should ignore WRITTEN LAWS and give ALL illegal aliens a pass as if they’ve committed no crime.

      YES.. an illegal alien should be deported. They knew when they came here that they were braking our border laws.. yet they chose to come her illegally regardless. Why do I owe them any sympathy? We allow ~1M LEGAL immigrants per year.. that is MORE than enough. So I have ZERO sympathy for those who knowingly break our laws as their first act of entering the USA. They knew they were coming here illegally.

      And stop with this ‘separating families’ BS!! US Citizens who commit crimes and are sentenced to jail / prison are separated from their families daily…. why are illegals so dang special? Take your kids with you when you return to where you came from.

      We are either a Nation who abides by Rule of Law or we aren’t. I want and respect Rule of Law. Period. IF you don’t like it.. change the laws and until then stop whining.

      I say who cares what they are doing?! If they are here illegally (and why can’t dumb democrats realize that the word illegally means ILLEGAL?!) then they should be sent back to where they came from. I can understand if someone is here and in the process of becoming legal; I could see working with that person, but to just be here illegally with no plans to fix his/her status is just wrong.

      [ I can understand if someone is here and in the process of becoming legal

      IMO if they are here illegally, they shouldn’t be allowed to ‘start the process of becoming legal WHILE THEY ARE STILL here illegally…

      IMO they should go back to where they came from, for a MINIMUM of 10 years before even having the Authority to try and come back in legally. THEN they can try to become a legal resident… Not until..

      Many people spend YEARS and thousands of dollars doing things legally and most are not allowed into the US TILL they do so. SO WHY should these criminals be rewarded with being allowed to stay while they ‘get legal’??

      Well put, Ituser. And scores of legal immigrants who’ve done what you described have expressed outrage that so many roam free here while they struggled through the process of earning a green card and citizenship. My fondest memory of this was during the first years of my teaching career- evening class that was majority less affluent undocumented students. Don’t remember what set her off but a middle-aged Mexican woman went off on a classmate, telling him that she’d struggled for five years to save every little piece of paper to prove she was learning English, had a visa and a lawyer, and deserved to be here. Her parting shot was that she had to do it and so should he. Bravo to her, I say. Cambodian, Vietnamese, Burmese, Chinese, and other students have shared similar sentiments with me, some really angry at illegal migrants.

    I live in Charlotte. Jennifer Roberts is so much to the left, the city is hurting.

    She was the one who started the problem with forcing an ordinance to allow transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice. This was her plan, along with fellow Democrats, to cause the state to override with the HB2 law. It was solely to discredit Gov. Pat McCrory in the November election.

    Roberts also presided over the violent “demonstration” that took downtown Charlotte in September of last year. A curfew was instituted, it was ignored, and no arrests were made.

    She is a schemer and has no real courage. She should be voted out ASAP.

    If she says that a person can be deported for having a broken tail light, then she is trying to draw you into her world. When reality complicates the lives of Liberals, reality must be discarded or modified so that it fits their politically-induced fantasies.

    The same mental sickness dictates that when a criminal commits a crime with a gun, the law-abiding are the guilty ones, and should be disarmed. And that the oceans are rising. And that drug dealers should be let out of prison. And that health insurance is improved when it becomes more expensive. I could go on and on…

    The list that illustrates and confirms that Liberals are mentally ill grows longer and more outrageous every day.

    It isn’t about a “broken tail light”, it is about the fact they are in this country ILLEGALLY! The fact they had a “broken tail light” that allowed the police to identify the criminal is a bonus as it allowed the police to identify a criminal through a simple traffic stop.

    The real problem is that we have illegal aliens who are draining the public resources by collecting benefits intended to help Citizens…

    Until we address the issue of non-citizens receiving public assistance, we will never tackle the illegal alien issue. Essentially, we are asking them to come over the border for a free lunch!

That means no trial and NO bail just being thrown out as they should be. I have nothing against those who are here legally but those who violate iur laws MUST go and that means all. Which means if they have a child while here illegally the child can either stay with A Legal resident or they can go with parents and return when they are of age(18 years old).

    No one is ever deported for having a broken taillight, and she knows it – the implication is just stupid! People who have broken our laws by coming into the country illegally are deported for THAT reason, as they should be. The new fear illegal aliens living here have, that the authorities may catch and deport them, is simply a consequence of living here illegally. Just like the person who has an outstanding warrant has to fear being stopped for a traffic violation and ending up in jail, a person who entered the US illegally has broken the law and must “live in the shadows” and avoid anything that might get them stopped by police or face possible deportation. That’s one major reason to do it legally in the first place! The only thing that has changed is that we are now starting to enforce our laws, which we previously ignored. Obviously, when they came here they thought the risk was worth the benefit. If they feel that is no longer the case, they can always leave.

    And here’s what is going on in SANCTUARY Charlotte/Rowan County NC: This case comes out of Rowan County, North Carolina where a local news report reveals that authorities began targeting large-scale heroin distribution in 2013. Last week three people with ties to a Mexican drug cartel were arrested in the county. Large quantities of heroin, handguns, a rifle, ammunition, numerous telephones, cash and drug paraphernalia was confiscated by police. Authorities say the Mexican heroin trafficking ring was based in the Charlotte-Matthews area and has been supplying heroin to Rowan County for more than a decade. “Over the past two months, investigators purchased large amounts of heroin from two people working for this Mexican National Drug Trafficking Organization,” the news report states. Looks like more than a broken taillight to me. http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2017/02/mexican-drug-cartel-operating-u-s-suburb-1500-miles-border/

This woman, a politician, of course, the Mayor of an evidently Dem/Lib/Prog city, reveals her intellectual deficit with unbridled clarity with such a silly, blatantly false quid pro quo. Those of you who have already pointed to what ought to be the point, and an obvious one at that, the illegality of migrant’s presence there, must feel at least as stunned as I am by the Loonies’ alternative universe perspectives. For millennia, those who committed crimes were punished for their criminality without, but rarely, any consideration given to “motive.” Our forebears knew well that to do so could justify any crime. Think about that. In our time, our courts and the legal system in general, are primarily focused upon finding “motive,” presumably so we can be exquisitely righteous, humane, and compassionate, (all terms hijacked by Lefties), instead of the criminal commission and its cost to the victim(s) and society at large.

    Typical liberal misdirection. Let’s focus on the minor issue of the broken tail light and IGNORE the major issue of a crime that was committed. Oh, we HAVE to protect the feelings of these poor souls!

    Tripe like that is why the country is in the shambles it is in already. Are those idiots so dumb as to think they were elected to protect the rights of NON-citizens?

    Frankly, as I see it, a criminal should have the right to a fair trial and due process as provided by law, not protection from being charged with law breaking. In other words, break into my home, you have done one criminal act. Get hurt while in my home does not give you rights to sue me for your injuries. You were here illegally, and that gives you NO rights.

      Ah, you see it as it is, honestly, straightforwardly, and entirely reasonably. That point of view is not only alien to the Lefty-Loonies, but threatening and dangerous. I doubt very much, though, if the Big Brother Society of Trump Derangement Syndrome exhibitors, such as this ditsy Mayor who evidently knows nothing about the law, or our Constitution, and so spout their delusional versions of them at will. It’s clear to me that everybody who isn’t in the camp with the Lefty-Loonies gorging on Kool-Aid must adopt, NOW, a far more aggressive stance and take far more assertive action to counter the growing flood of this Leftist propaganda that is changing our children, our mores, our very civilization.

      They should NOT enjoy our rights. BUT liberals for decades now have been slowly and slowly stacking courts to rule that they DO get covered by our constitutions. BUT yet care nowt that our OWN citizens are being denied THEIR RIGHTS tie and time again..

    To make it worse, just about every aspect of our culture is now politicized. It’s dangerous to deviate from the Lefty “group-think.” If we’re only free to speak in agreement with the loud and violent “protesters,” then clearly there is no such thing as “free speech.” There is no such thing as justice for the damaged, when nutters like this Mayor believe justice is only for the criminals. We are, as Bush I famously said, “…in deep doo-doo.”

    In other words, “I don’t have any evidence that ICE has lied or violated any of their policies and procedures but I’m a card-carrying liberal Democrat so I have to complain.”

    [Mayor Roberts said:] “Our community is less safe for everyone when immigrants are afraid to report crimes or testify as witnesses to crimes.”

    Uh, no, not unless she’s referring to illegal aliens who are afraid of being deported if they reveal themselves, but then again, they’re the ones who are committing the crimes in the first place. Genuine immigrants aren’t afraid to report crimes or testify as witnesses, unless they’re afraid of reprisals from illegal aliens. So the more illegal aliens we get rid of, the higher the proportion there’ll be of LEGAL immigrants to report crimes without being afraid.
