Tell the Knox County mayor and county commission to oppose Sheriff J.J. Jones’ anti-immigrant 287(g) application
Knox County Sheriff J.J. Jones has applied for 287(g), an #ICE program deputizing state and local police and sheriffs to enforce federal immigration law. 287(g) programs have a devastating impact on local communities, encouraging racial profiling and frequent deportations for misdemeanors, eroding public trust in local law enforcement, and wasting taxpayer resources. Urge the Knox County mayor and county commission to tell Sheriff Jones to withdraw his anti-immigrant 287(g) application immediately: http://bit.ly/2q8LHhz #100DaysTN
