After the bill seemed to stall on Tuesday, the Tennessee Legislature gave final approval yesterday to a bill that would ban “sanctuary” city policies and require law enforcement to cooperate with immigration officials, the Times Free Press reports. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Jay Reedy, R-Erin, and Sen. Mark Green, R-Clarksville, would deny state economic community grants to cities that have such policies. No Tennessee city thus far has adopted any sort of “sanctuary city” measure.
