A bill that would explicitly ban sanctuary cities in Tennessee and require local law enforcement to detain certain immigrants passed the House State Government Committee today, The Tennessean reports. Tennessee currently doesn’t have any sanctuary cities and the executive director of the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association says that the current detainer system is working, but proponents of the measure say it’s necessary to avoid issues seen in other states. The Senate version of the bill is set to be taken up tomorrow.
