Buncombe County Sheriff Miller announced yesterday that the Sheriff's Office will no longer honor ICE detainers. “It is vital that our immigrant community can call the Sheriff’s Office without fear when they are in need of assistance from law enforcement,” said Sheriff Miller, flanked by BCSO leadership, leaders from CIMA, and local clergy at a press conference announcing the new policy.

As a County Commissioner I support this new policy. And I continue to stand with our immigrant brothers & sisters as we strive to create communities where love, not fear, guides us.
