More than 100 people marched to the Tennessee Supreme Court building in Nashville on Thursday to demonstrate their outrage against Metro’s participation in the 287(g) program, the federal immigration enforcement program that allows law enforcement to determine the immigration status of jail inmates and turn them over for federal deportation proceedings. The march occurred just hours before the Tennessee Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case challenging the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office’s authority to participate in the federal program. Fox 17 has video of the march and the arguments.
