Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden on Tuesday blasted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement over its new Charlotte billboard campaign that depicts local "immigration violators" who were freed from jail. "One individual is charged with second-degree rape and violating a domestic violence protective order," McFadden said. "Those are very, very serious charges. Shouldn't he be brought to justice? Shouldn't he be allowed to confront his accusers? Shouldn't his victims have their day in court?" "Shouldn't our criminal justice system be allowed to show the community that it works? ICE doesn't think so." Instead, according to the sheriff, "ICE would just deport this defendant as soon as he makes bond " sweeping him under the rug (or back to his home country). Where is the justice for those victims?"
