Rep. Black Statement on Metro Council's Plan to Withdraw Immigration Ordinances

Rep. Black Statement on Metro Council\

June 29, 2017

Today, Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) responded to Nashville Metro Council's plans to withdraw two pieces of controversial immigration legislation. Following the legal opinion of one of Nashville's
top attorney's, opposition from Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall and pressure from state leaders, the bills are planned to be tabled. Black released the following statement:

"After Metro's own legal director determined that both of these ordinances were found to be in violation of the law, it's only right that the Council made plans to table this legislation. Limiting the cooperation of local law enforcement with federal officials places the safety of citizens at risk and restricts the ability of officers to secure their communities. Withdrawing these bills is a good start to holding jurisdictions across the country responsible for illegal immigrants breaking federal law. The U.S. House of Representatives will be voting today on Kate's Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act to strengthen public safety by combating dangerous sanctuary policy that permit criminals to walk free. It's far past time to protect our families and it is my hope that these two bills provide the avenue to do so."
