Edwards rips Cooper's veto of ICE bill

The political squabble continues in Raleigh over the Legislature's bill forcing sheriffs statewide to comply with federal with customs enforcement agents' detainer request. Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed the bill on Wednesday, calling it an unconstitutional law born of "partisan political pandering."

State Sen. Chuck Edwards, a Hendersonville Republican, fired off a news release that criticized Cooper for choosing "to pander to his far-left supporters."
