Latino Leader Attack McCrory Comments At Rally


RALEIGH, N.C. Advocates for Latinos in North Carolina say comments on child immigration by Gov. Pat McCrory invoke fear and divide their communities.


The advocates joined with the NAACP and other community members to address McCrory's comments at a news conference Friday.


This week, McCrory said North Carolina officials know too little about the influx of unaccompanied children who eventually arrived in the state after crossing the Mexican border.


Advocates said the unaccompanied children are not the real threat to the state when there are communities where families lack health care and children are in poverty while attending underfunded schools.


Erik Valera of El Centro Hispano, a Latino community organization, said his and other groups are ready to help the children despite McCrory's concerns.
