Nashville Sheriff Requests Immigration Officer for Davidson County Jails

September 6, 2006

Sheriff Daron Hall announced yesterday that he has issued a request to Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) for a full-time immigration officer to be stationed with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office.  Sheriff Hall’s goal is to check the immigration status of every inmate for possible deportation.  Don’t count on Sheriff Hall getting his request.  ICE simply does not have the manpower and resources to effect the deportation of every person arrested with no immigration status.
