President Donald Trump has criticized North Carolina’s governor for vetoing a bill that would have required the state’s sheriffs to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

‘This is a terrible decision for the great people of North Carolina. He should reverse his decision and get back to the basics of fighting crime!’ Trump said of Democrat Governor Roy Cooper.

On Wednesday, Cooper vetoed HB 370, which would have required sheriffs to recognize requests by federal immigration agents to hold jail inmates believed to be in the country illegally.

The detainers ask that a suspect be held up to 48 hours for pickup.

They aren’t arrest warrants, so currently they can be ignored if sheriffs choose to or are order to by local governments.

The bill’s Republican sponsors said sheriffs should work with ICE and vowed to override the veto.

‘Law enforcement officers have a sworn responsibility to protect their citizens — and that includes cooperating with federal authorities,’ state Sen. Chuck Edwards, a Republican from Henderson County, told the Charlotte Observer.
