In a 7-4 vote, the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Authority Board agreed to continue its policy of notifying United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) upon the impending release of certain illegal aliens.
Voting to discontinue ICE notification:
- Wes Bellamy, Charlottesville City Councilor
- Mike Murphy, Interim Charlottesville City Manager
- Kristin Clarens, Charlottesville Citizen Representative
- Lawton Tufts, Joint Member City & County Representative
A raucous crown of violent anarchists disrupted the meeting throughout with obscene outbursts and direct physical threats to those who spoke in favor of policy retention.
Upon the meeting’s conclusion a cursing mob descended on two pro-retention speakers who were attempting to access their vehicles. Police intervention was required for the participants’ protection.
