Jim Pendergraph and 287(g)

Jim Pendergraph was sheriff of Mecklenburg County and was the first to sign up for the 287(g) program in North Carolina. He did not like the Op-Ed I wrote about the program and wrote a letter to the News & Observer. He apparently thinks I make stuff up, because he finds it "difficult to believe" the direct quote from ICE that I got from the January 2009 GAO report, which he has obviously not read. He also believes that there is no problem with the relationship between law enforcement and the Latino community because there is "no verifiable evidence" that people are afraid.

Given his prominent position in all this, I was disappointed the response was this weak.

Sadly, it's not surprising at all.
