On Tuesday the Obama administration filed suit in Phoenix to stop enforcement of Arizona’s new immigration law. Here in North Carolina, county commissioners are hoping their voices are also heard about the new law.
County commissioners in New Hanover County will vote next Monday night on a resolution supporting Arizona’s immigration law. Earlier this year, Gaston County and Beaufort County commissioners both passed similar resolutions in support of the Arizona law.
According to a May 2010 Civitas Institute DecisionMaker Poll, 65 percent of North Carolinians favor the new Arizona law regarding illegal immigration.
