Mayor Barry: Nashville cops aren’t ‘immigration police’

by Joey Garrison, The Tennessean - As President-elect Donald Trump vows to deport between two and three million undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry says she believes that local police forces shouldn’t be used to carry out federal immigration policy.

“I do not believe local resources should be used to enforce federal immigration administrative polices,” Barry said in a statement that her office tweeted Wednesday. “Our police officers are not immigration police, they do not ask about immigration status during stops or conversations with the public, nor do they intend to start now. “I will continue to do whatever I can to ensure that Nashville remains a warm and welcoming city that treats everyone with respect.”(link)
