Dole unveils ad featuring Sheriff Davis

    Davis worked in recent months to get approval for a program that gives counties the ability to begin deportation proceedings. He recently traveled to Washington D.C. and met with Dole, Sen. Richard Burr, Rep. Heath Shuler and Rep. Patrick McHenry. He said Dole worked the hardest to get the county approved for the deportation program.
