*Under the leadership of North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, though outlawed, many cities and counties in that state have been allowed to implement 'sanctuary' policies. As a result of Cooper's refusal to enforce the laws of his own state, North Carolina has basically been transformed into a 'virtual border state.'
Incidentally, Smithfield, the county seat of Johnston County, is located 1,554 miles from the Mexican border.
