Scrutiny of the city's probation department intensified this week, with Mayor David Briley and a broad swath of the Metro Council demanding investigations into the department's cooperation with federal immigration agents seeking to deport immigrants in the country illegally, the Tennessean reports. Briley is calling for an investigation and performance audit of the General Sessions Probation Department following reports that the agency is sharing information on probationers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Briley is expected to sign an executive order that outlines what Metro departments and employees should do when contacted by ICE.
