A Chapel Hill – Carrboro City Schools teacher assistant has been charged with a Burlington murder.

Below is the message sent to parents by CHCCS superintendent Pamela Baldwin:

Good afternoon CHCCS families and staff. Earlier today, we received very disconcerting news from the Burlington Police that one of our employees, Tanesha Jeffries, was arrested and charged with murder in connection with a robbery in Alamance County.

As you can imagine, this news is devastating for a variety of reasons. This is an extremely difficult situation, and it is sure to draw significant media coverage, but we wanted you to have the facts as we know them.

Ms. Jeffries has been terminated from her employment by the school district. Ms. Jeffries worked as a teacher assistant at Northside Elementary with our pre-Kindergarten students.

We recognize this is very troubling, but know that we will lock arms and take care of our Northside students and staff members…and together we will work through this.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me directly. Thank you for your continued support.

Pam Baldwin
Superintendent

Fear struck several immigrant communities around the Triangle when federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested more than a dozen individual in Orange and Chatham counties earlier this month.

Local non-profit El Centro Hispano is leading the movement in supporting those affected by the raids and held a press conference on Friday where North Carolina’s 4th District Congressman David Price and other local officials met with families of those arrested and expressed their disapproval of the arrests.

Price called the raids “simply unacceptable” and said they are cruel and inhumane.

“My position on immigration is that we need comprehensive reform that lets 11 million people come out from the shadows and obtain legal status and work toward citizenship and that we address the need in our society for good productive citizens working in a way to benefit the community. And I think the vast, vast majority of immigrants are prepared to do just that,” said Price.“I talked to officials in ICE about these North Carolina raids last week and what on earth is going on here, what is the rational for these raids, and we are in the process, of course, of trying to deal with individual cases but also demanding and accounting of what this is all about.”

According to Price, there needs to be a targeted, sensible, understandable and transparent policy of enforcement for arrests because many of the people arrested were not the targets, but just picked up incidentally, Price said they were “at the wrong place at the wrong time.” Those arrested include a local handyman who was arrested after ICE agents knocked on his family’s door searching for a fugitive and claimed they were not going to ask for documentation, according to El Centro Community Engagement & Advocacy manager Eliazar Posada.

“The family allowed them into the house to comply with law enforcement as we talk about – local law enforcement has been very supportive and we are always willing to work with local law enforcement. We also want to say that at this point they were wearing a vest that said ‘police’ so the community members mistakenly thought they were friends of the family, after verifying and looking in every room that that person that they were supposedly looking for wasn’t there, they proceeded to ask for documentation of the family and arrested the husband,” Posada said.

The man’s wife was present at the meeting holding her baby.

According to Posada, the man was the sole breadwinner in the family, leaving his wife as the single provider for her three children with no preparation.

Carrboro Mayor Lydia Lavelle said at the meeting that this type of raid impedes any trust of local law enforcement that the community has worked hard to build up.

“We’re working very closely again with El Centro; we had another ‘Know Your Rights’ seminar last weekend; we had several elected officials there; we had all of the law enforcement there, really getting out the word to the community so that they can understand the difference between local law enforcement that supports them and ICE who they need to be aware of and talking to them about best practices around who to open the door for and who to speak to. So, it’s a constant battle because when something like this happens, suddenly there’s distrust again,” said Lavelle.

Price said he believes the Trump administration is taking the federal immigration policy in a direction that does not reflect well on our country.

“I worked years ago, and I was the chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations committee, and worked to prioritize enforcement on people who posed a danger to the community – people who had dangerous felonies on their record. We need to know who they are, and they don’t need to be in this country. That is the opposite of what I see the Trump administration doing, which appears to be a totally unfocused, untargeted, indiscriminate policy of arrest and deportation,” Price said.

Chapel Hill Town Council member Michael Parker and Orange County Commissioner Mark Dorosin also spoke at the conference.

El Centro began a GoFundMe with a goal of $30,000 to help pay for the legal fees of the individuals detained by ICE in Orange County and will announce another Know Your Rights seminar within the next couple of weeks.

The walkout was coordinated with national protests, which were held on the anniversary of the Columbine shooting in 1999. This is the second gun violence protest in recent weeks after a March 14 rally on campuses across the district marking the one-month anniversary of the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed.

Students at Friday’s rally were continuing their push for legislative action on firearm regulations, including universal enforcement of background checks and raising the eligible age to purchase a firearm.

“It’s exciting,” CHCCS board member James Barrett said at the rally. “Enough is enough. It’s time for a change, and I’m really really glad that they’re speaking out and making a change.”

Students chanted “I’d rather be suspended than have our lives ended,” among other chants at the rally. That comes after the school district sent a message to parents earlier in the week saying students walking out of class and leaving campus would be treated as a violation of the code of conduct. The district did not punish students who walked out of class and held on-campus rallies in March.

“I don’t want to prejudge that, what may actually happen out of that,” Barrett said. “You certainly have to draw the line somewhere as administration, and we’ll see how it goes from here. It’s hard to say.”

The students at the rally seemed to embrace a punishment possibly being associated with their civil disobedience.

Barrett’s overall message to the students was to keep pushing for change.

“Don’t give up,” he said. “This is going to be a long fight, and we need to take it to Raleigh as well. And I hope they continue to stay active and involved.”

One of those lawmakers from Raleigh who was in attendance Friday was Grier Martin – a Democratic House Representative in the state legislature.

“My generation,” Martin said, “only reason we should be here is to listen. This is the new generation that’s really going to bring about change. They recognize that our failure to address the issue of gun violence by my generation has a direct impact on their lives, potentially threatening their lives.”

As to what’s Martin said he is hearing from the students, “I’m hearing they want change.”

Students were encouraging their peers to register to vote and had volunteers helping eligible students fill out that necessary paperwork at the rally.

Researchers at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center are looking into the links between obesity and cancer.

While it is common knowledge that things like smoking and exposure to sun can put you at risk for cancer, Professor in the Department of Nutrition at UNC Dr. Stephen Hursting says obesity is a lesser known risk factor.

“It might surprise [people] that obesity increases the risk of many cancers,” said Hursting. “In fact, an estimated one of every four cancer deaths can be attributed to overweight and obesity. This includes some of the leading cancer killers such as breast, colon, pancreatic and liver cancer.”

With nearly four in every ten adult Americans considered obese, Hursting says this is an urgent problem.

Even more troubling is the fact that the research shows simply losing weight doesn’t always reverse the effects that obesity has on your body.

“The road to obesity-related cancer risk is different than the road back in terms of reversing the effects of chronic obesity,” says Hursting. “There are a number of biological changes that occur in tissues, and in developing cancer itself over time with obesity, that can really get in the way.”

Hursting describes the issue as an urgent question without an answer, although simple preventative measures such as exercise and aspirin can curb the risk.

“Many people are doing a low dose aspirin for preventing heart attacks, and based on our findings I think that that’s going to also contribute to some reduction in inflammation related to obesity,” said Hursting.
