On July 26, Willie Rowe handily defeated incumbent Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker in the Democratic primary, with 75 percent of the vote.
Baker, since taking office on December 3, 2018, has refused to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and has released many criminals back into his county, despite ICE detainers being issued against them.
A few weeks ago, this reporter contacted the Democratic candidate for Wake County Sheriff, Wille Rowe.
The question was simple: “Upon taking office, will you enforce ICE detainers on illegal aliens in the Wake County Jail?”
Candidate Rowe’s long-anticipated answer follows:
My position on 287g remains that the program is wrong, creates a double standard, is not cost effective and has not been productive in removing violent offenders from the community. I believe the use of detainers to hold individuals arrested for minor nonviolent offenses once they have posted bond is not the best option and only results in separating families and causing undue hardships…
Of course, Baker ended Wake County Jail's participation in 287g four years ago.
So, if elected, Rowe would simply continue the ‘sanctuary’ policy of his predecessor and continue to endanger Wake County residents, by protecting criminal aliens from deportation.
On November 8, Rowe will face Republican nominee and former four-term Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison in the general election.
