Finally, immigration court comes to Charlotte

Sue MyrickFor years, Rep. Sue Myrick tried to bring an immigration court to Charlotte. Finally, she has gotten her wish. The court will be located  at 5701 Executive Center Drive, which is off of Albemarle Road and will open November 4 of this year.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Rep. Myrick.  “An immigration court will speed up illegal alien deportations.  It will also help legal immigrants playing by the rules because they will no longer have to travel to Atlanta to deal with immigration matters.”

In next week’s Mint Hill Times, read about Rep. Myrick’s race with Democratic challenger Harry Taylor.
