Statement from the Office of the Mayor regarding ICE Raids

Statement from the Office of the Mayor regarding ICE Raids

Greetings Everyone:

 

There have been reports of ICE Raids taking place across counties in NC. Presently, I have not been informed of or know about any raids that have taken place here in Rowan County or in Salisbury.

 

During a press conference earlier this month, ICE Atlanta Field Office Director, Sean Gallagher announced that increased enforcement activity will happen.

 

My message to our immigrant residents is this; you live in a City that respects and values your contributions to our community.

 

The City of Salisbury and our police department do not participate in ICE raids. If ICE is planning a raid in the Salisbury community, we have not been told.

 

Please know, that if you are the victim of a crime or if you should need emergency assistance, our police and fire departments are here to serve you.

 

Recently, NC Mayors from Durham, Ashville, Greensboro, Fayetteville, Burlington, Chapel Hill and Carrboro issued a letter stating their opposition to the ICE raids that have swept through NC and called on ICE officials to cease these raids because it is detrimental to the welcoming, stable, loving communities that we work everyday to build.

 

I, too, stand with these mayors.

 

Sincerely,

 

Al Heggins, Mayor of Salisbury


Spanish Translation

Saludos a todos:

 

Ha habido informes de redadas de ICE que se llevan a cabo en los condados de Carolina del Norte. En la actualidad, no me han informado ni sé de ninguna redada que haya tenido lugar aquí en el condado de Rowan o en Salisbury.

 

Durante una conferencia de prensa a principios de este mes, el Director de la Oficina de Campo de ICE Atlanta, Sean Gallagher, anunció que se incrementará la actividad de cumplimiento.

 

Mi mensaje a nuestros residentes inmigrantes es este; vives en una ciudad que respeta y valora tus contribuciones a nuestra comunidad.

 

La Ciudad de Salisbury y nuestro departamento de policía no participan en las redadas de ICE. Si ICE está planeando una redada en la comunidad de Salisbury, no nos han dicho.

 

Tenga en cuenta que si usted es víctima de un delito o si necesita asistencia de emergencia, nuestros departamentos de policía y bomberos están aquí para servirle.

 

Recientemente, los alcaldes de Carolina del Norte de Durham, Ashville, Greensboro, Fayetteville, Burlington, Chapel Hill y Carrboro emitieron una carta en la que expresaban su oposición a las redadas de ICE que habían invadido NC y llamaron a los funcionarios de ICE para que cesaran estas redadas porque es perjudicial para la bienvenida , comunidades estables y amorosas que trabajamos todos los días para construir.

 

Yo también estoy con estos alcaldes.

 

Sincereamente,

 

Al Heggins, Alcadesa de Salisbury
