SB-145 is an anti-immigrant bill that would violate one's privacy rights and open the door for the state police to act as immigration officials. It would also take away funding for any local government that is violating immigration laws (sanctuary cities). Sanctuary cities are illegal in North Carolina, which means that any anonymous tip (which we will be allowed to do under this new bill) will be investigated with the waste of NC tax paying dollars. This is only part of the new proposed bill that will set out to create a blanket of fear in the undocumented community.
