Bright & Early: Up And Out Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Over the next few months, the Metro Council will be taking a closer look at the 287(g) immigration enforcement program in order to decide whether or not the city should just opt out altogether. In an effort to prevent jails from filling up with only minor offenders awaiting deportation hearings, the federal government has made some changes that allow most folks detained through the program to walk free while they wait. Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall plans to go to Washington to suggest a few changes of his own.
