Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden is responsible for releasing 500 illegal aliens with detainers from jail.
Nearly 500 undocumented immigrants have been released from jails across the state in the past ten months despite administrative detainers filed against them by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
WBTV obtained new data compiled by ICE outlining the figures. The data covers Fiscal Year 2019, which began in October 2018 and runs through next month.

According to the data, 489 detainers were declined by law enforcement.
A detainer is an administrative request from the federal government to a local law enforcement agency to hold someone in jail even after they are eligible for release on their state charge.
A detainer is often used by ICE to keep undocumented immigrants in jail because removal from the country is a civil action and not a criminal matter.
The Sheriff campaigned on this:
The debate over whether local authorities should cooperate with ICE detainers has raged this year after Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden announced he would no longer honor ICE detainers.
McFadden campaigned on a pledge to not participate in the 287(g) program, a federal program where local law enforcement agencies are given authority to enforce some immigration laws.
McFadden ended his office’s participation in the 287(g) program soon after taking office in December 2018 and also announced he would no longer honor ICE detainers, which are separate from the 287(g) program.
This same county just had its 8th illegal alien commit a sex crime since July 25th:
MORE: Last summer, MoCo Police charged Adebusuyi with 2nd-degree assault, 4th-degree sex offense and false imprisonment.
Prosecutors dropped all counts in that case for unspecified reasons.

When liberals tell you they care about the safety of American citizens don’t believe them. When liberals tell you that they give a damn about sexual abuse don’t believe them. The bottom line is that these people should be deported and should never be allowed back into the United States.
