N.C. State Senator Elizabeth Dole and Rep. Sue Myrick announced Friday that the US Department of Justice is establishing a new immigration court in North Carolina.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, North Carolina has the eighth-largest illegal immigrant population in the country and out of the top 14, North Carolina is the only state not to have its own immigration court. North Carolina cases have been processed through Atlanta’s court. The immigration court will help the federal government process and adjudicate immigration violations within the region. The court is expected to open in the Charlotte area as early as this fall.
