N.C. GOP URGES ATTORNEY GENERAL TO ENFORCE NEW LAW BANNING SANCTUARY CITIES

While North Carolinians await their governor to sign a bill that will make sanctuary cities illegal in the state, the N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper -- who many believe will make a run as the Democratic Party's gubernatorial candidate -- is more interested in joining his party's leaders in attacking the Second Amendment rights of American gun owners, according to statement from the North Carolina Republican Party on Monday.

NCGOP Chairman Hasan Harnett said in a statement released on Monday: “It’s shameful that Roy Cooper has chosen once again to side with Washington, D.C. and follow President Obama’s lead, using the recent terrorist attack as a bait-and-switch to push for more gun control in North Carolina. Considering anyone can be placed on the terror watch list for any number of reasons arbitrarily, it is equally as scary that our state’s elected attorney general and top law enforcement officer is for stripping our citizens of their constitutional rights and denying them due process in order to score points with the far-left elements of his party.”

Meanwhile, the executive director of the state's Republican Party, Dallas Woodhouse, urged Cooper to take a stand on sanctuary cities legislation recently passed by the North Carolina General Assembly and called for the state's citizens to sign a petition demanding that the Democratic Party's Cooper to enforce the law. Woodhouse voiced his demand in a press briefing after the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested that Gov. Pat McCrory should veto the bill on his desk that makes sanctuary cities illegal in North Carolina.

“There’s a fundamental question the citizens of North Carolina have a right to be answered: Does the Attorney General stand for the rule of law, and stand with the governor in ending sanctuary cities, or does he stand with Hillary Clinton and against the rule of law,” Woodhouse said.

Woodhouse's Clinton accusation is based on news stories revealing Clinton’s campaign calling the bill “anti-immigrant” and urging McCrory to veto it. While McCrory has yet to take action on the bill, his campaign sent a fundraising letter on the subject of sanctuary cities.

“I believe that every law enforcement officer is sworn to uphold not only the laws of North Carolina, but also the laws of the United States… and that includes our immigration laws,” the Woodhouse email read in part.

However, Attorney General Cooper is more than ready to work with President Barack Obama and the Democrats to on gun control in the wake of the San Bernardino massacre.

The North Carolina Republican Party's Chairman Hasan Harnett responded with a press statement on Tuesday: "It’s shameful that Roy Cooper has chosen once again to side with Washington, D.C. and follow President Obama’s lead, using the recent terrorist attack as a bait-and-switch to push for more gun control in North Carolina. Considering anyone can be placed on the terror watch list for any number of reasons arbitrarily, it is equally as scary that our state’s elected attorney general and top law enforcement officer is for stripping our citizens of their constitutional rights and denying them due process in order to score points with the far-left elements of his party."

Oregon passes law banning driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

Meanwhile, in another case reported by NewswithViews.com, this one in Oregon, the majority of voters cast their ballots against the illegal immigrant driver's license law (Measure 88) on Election Day in November 2014. The vote banning illegal aliens from getting licenses passed with an overwhelming two-thirds majority. Supporters of the illegal aliens, who are pro-sanctuary city, pro-welfare for illegal immigrants and pro-amnesty, believed that Oregon had moved far enough to the left to pass Measure 88.

The pro-illegal alien supporters and Latino leaders were shocked when they discovered that not only did they lose at the polls, but 35-out-of-36 Oregon’s counties voted against licenses for undocumented residents, as did every congressional district in the state. What shocked the news media the most was the fact that many of those counties are represented by members of the Democratic Party.

"The fact that so many left-wing activists and Latino leaders are so surprised that they lost on election day shows that they actually believed the phony polls that saturate the news media that claim the majority of Americans favor driver's licenses and other privileges for illegal aliens who are lawbreakers in reality," said Joseph Kirklyn, a former federal law enforcement task force member. "The people have spoken so now these illegal aliens are taking their case to a group of black-robed lawyers who have in the past overturned the will of the people," Kirklyn said.

The illegal aliens' lawsuit claims that Measure 88 is unconstitutional. It alleges that the law arbitrarily denies driving privileges based on membership in a disfavored minority group.

"In other words, it accuses Oregonians of bigotry and discrimination. The plaintiffs alleges that Oregon's voters were motivated by 'animus toward persons from Mexico and Central America,'" explained former police officer and prosecuting attorney, Iris Aquino, herself a Hispanic who was born in the United States to American citizens.

Cynthia Kendoll, president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, said it's not the responsibility of Oregonians to make illegal immigrants comfortable or able to drive to jobs they don't legally have. "They came here by choice, they weren't brought here against their will, and with those choices come hardships," she said.

Besides rank and file Oregon residents, the Oregon Sheriffs Political Action Committee also had issued a public statement that the Sheriffs “have voted overwhelmingly to oppose Measure 301, which provides ‘drivers cards’ to people who cannot prove their legal presence in the United States,” according to their press statement.
