DARLINGTON - In light of President Donald Trump's repeated promises to crack down on illegal immigration, members of local law enforcement are moving to reassure Hispanic communities to not be afraid to contact police. "We've sent letters to Hispanic churches and businesses in the area," Darlington Police Chief Jason King said. "We've let them know that we haven't received any instructions or requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and we probably won't."
