The North Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee approved the bill on April 30.

It was approved in the state House of Representatives in March and it is now up to the state Senate to review it.

Does this law only affect undocumented immigrants? It could be harmful to all immigrants who are suspected of committing a crime.

It requires local authorities to report any immigrant who is detained.

Local sheriffs will be responsible for making detainees available to ICE.

There are two actions that sheriffs will be required take.

They must inform ICE about detainees facing certain types of criminal charges. They are also required to hold individuals for an additional 48 hours when requested by immigration authorities if they are accused of any offense.

This week will be crucial to see if North Carolina legislators advance the proposal and if it passes the state Senate.
