A LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Will Illegal Immigrants Overwhelm North Carolina cities?
As we begin to take steps to restore our country during this election year, it appears that our local government candidates will find themselves on the front lines of an extremely important national security issue.
Earlier this month, the North State Journal reported that dozens of illegal immigrants arrived at Charlotte Douglas International Airport via an American Airlines flight from Phoenix. Witnesses said that the immigrants were carrying backpacks, paperwork, and brand-new smart phones. The stories can be read here and here.
In recent years we’ve heard disturbing reports about sanctuary cities such as New York City, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants flown to these locations. For example, New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently forced high school students into virtual classrooms to make room for over 2,000 illegal immigrant students at James Madison High School and other public schools.
And last spring in Chicago, three Venezuelan nationals who were living at an elementary school that was being used as a “migrant shelter” went on a crime spree that included attacking city residents in local parks.
Last year Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a bill that required North Carolina sheriffs to enforce ICE detainers. This would’ve required sheriffs to hold illegal immigrants accused of serious crimes in jail for at least 48 hours. Gov. Cooper vetoed the bill twice.
Obviously, that sent a clear message to non-government organizations which finance the transportation of illegal immigrants across the across the country. And Charlotte happens to be on a list of sanctuary cities in
North Carolina. It won’t be long before the city of Charlotte will be faced with the same problems we see in New York City, Boston, and Chicago. And it won’t be long before Charlotte begins to share its problems with neighboring cities.
We need your help to stop this! If you would please visit our website and donate $100, $50 or $24 for 2024, we will use these finances to support local candidates who will openly declare that Winston-Salem is NOT a sanctuary city and who will urge our county sheriff to enforce ICE detainers.
Please click here to make your donation. And please make it a monthly reoccurring donation, if at all possible.
Thank you very much!

FORSYTH COUNTY GOP SUPPORTS VETERANS AT VETERANS CUP
FCGOP Community Engagment Chair Colleen Lopina recently attended a Veterans Cup meeting to bring snack items donated by Forsyth County Republicans.
Veterans Cup is a non partisan 501C3 not for profit organization that has a motto of Bridging Generations Of Veterans One Cup At A Time. Veterans Cup does this by hosting weekly coffees; with weekly coffees being a metaphor for getting together, having that solid peer to peer, Veteran to Veteran connection. The weekly coffee model offers peer to peer support for all Veterans, their support circle, family, advocates, widow and widowers of Veterans, active duty military, Goldstar, Silverstar families, and the community who supports our beloved Veterans. If you or anyone you know would like more information, please go to the Veterans Cup FaceBook page or website www.veteranscup.org.
If you would like to join the Community Engagement Committee and help with projects that support our veterans, police and firefighters, please contact Colleen at [email protected].
