White House proposes collecting DNA from immigrants

A policy change proposed by the Trump administration would allow U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to collect DNA samples from immigrants taken into custody in North Carolina and around the country. The proposed policy change was announced by a White House representative on Oct. 21 and published in the Federal Register on Oct. 22. If the measure is implemented, the DNA collected from immigrants in custody will be added to a nationwide database compiled and maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

DWI arrests on the decline in North Carolina

For decades, law enforcement and safety advocates have been trying to get the word out that drunk driving is a dangerous and potentially deadly choice. Lawmakers continue to tighten laws, and police enforce those laws in an effort to keep the roads safe. These efforts seem to be working since the number of drunk driving arrests has dropped an average of 30% across North Carolina.
