Immigration Enforcement

We must target 287(g) federal dollars for local immigration surge

Published Sunday, December 16, 2007

If you’ve read the newspaper lately, you probably saw that the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office has teamed up with senior staff in Gov. Mark Sanford’s office to confront the challenge of illegal immigration in South Carolina.

On behalf of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office, I want to take this opportunity to let you know a little bit more about this cooperative effort aimed at solving a controversial problem.

Like many other states, South Carolina has seen a surge of illegal immigrants within its borders in recent years. In fact, a recent study estimates that there are over 144,000 illegal immigrants currently living in our state — an increase of more than 1,000 percent from 15 years ago.
