CARY, NC (AP) — A Cary homeowners group is concerned about an
Immigration and Customs Enforcement office proposed near their
WRAL-TV reported Tuesday that residents of the neighborhood
received flyers about the potential relocation of the federal
office from a Cary business park to the site of a former Kroger
store near their homes.
U.S. Homeland Security Department spokeswoman Danielle Bennett
says the office would be used primarily for administrative
activities, but it would include cells for holding and interviewing
suspects. No overnight stays are anticipated.
Park West Homeowners Association president Mark Howard says
residents think the site is “very inappropriate” for any facility
that may be handling detainees.
The association has called an emergency meeting for Tuesday
night to organization opposition to the potential move.
