Proposed ICE Move Rankles Some Cary Residents

The proposed move of a federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement office in Cary is raising hackles among some residents. ICE officials want to move from a Cary business park to another location. One of the sites being considered is in a shopping center where a supermarket was housed. Susan Moran is a spokesperson for the town of Cary.

Susan Moran: "If the ICE facility were to relocate there and be more than 12 thousand square feet, and that building is 59 thousand square feet, it would absolutely violate the zoning conditions for that area."
Leaders of a local neighborhood association are opposed to the facility because some detainees may be interviewed and held there during the day, according to federal officials. They have not chosen a final site for the office yet.
