On May 8, Mecklenburg voters will take to the polls to elect a new sheriff. One of the biggest issues up for debate is 287(g), a program that allows Mecklenburg sheriff’s deputies to work with federal immigration officials to screen and detain inmates.
WFAE’s FAQ City podcast wants to know: what questions do you have about 287(g) or immigration/deportation policies in the Charlotte region?
A few questions to get you inspired:
- When/why did the 287(g) program get started in our county?
- How many people have been deported through the program?
- Does this make our community safer?
