Davidson County sheriff signs agreement to enforce immigration laws

Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall signed an agreement with federal immigration officials today that allows his deputies to check the immigration status of people in the county jail and begin deportation proceedings for those in the country illegally.

The signing occurred at a meeting with U.S. Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security Julie Myers that was hosted by Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker and Reps. Jim Cooper, D-Nashville, and Marsha Blackburn, R-Brentwood.

The agreement would make Nashville one of fewer than a dozen communities in the country where local law enforcement officials are given the authority to carry out federal immigration laws, Alexander said.

"Illegal immigrants who break the law will find they have done it in the wrong county," Alexander said after the meeting.

Alexander said the agreement also provides for training of sheriff's deputies by federal immigration officials, access to the Homeland Security databases, and reimbursement from the department if illegal immigrants are held in the county jail during deportation proceedings.
