Local sheriffs oppose Senate immigration bill

Posted: Updated:

The Senate immigration reform debate is heating up in Washington and local law enforcement leaders right here in the East have something to say about it

Seventy-five North Carolina Sheriffs signed a letter addressed to U.S. Senators announcing their opposition to the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill.

At least six coastal Carolina Sheriffs added their names to the letter, Including Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck and Washington County Sheriff James Ross.

Two votes on the bill are scheduled to take place in the Senate Tuesday.
