Legislation requiring sheriffs to hold people for ICE clears Senate

After the 25-18 party-line vote in the Senate, the measure heads back to the House for one final vote before going to Gov. Roy Cooper.

"This bill is the right thing to do if we're clear on who we should protect – criminals or law-abiding citizens," said Sen. Chuck Edwards, R-Henderson. "What we're talking about is cooperating with an agency that is trying to protect us."
