Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

IS THIS AMERICA'S FRIENDLIEST CITY?

Rate this Entry

I have always loved Nashville from my college days and the eight years I lived in the city after law school. I still make it up every month or so to visit clients. The city is beautiful, has wonderful people, great restaurants and culture and well deserves its ranking as one of America's friendliest cities.



So it really breaks my heart to see anti-immigrant forces in the city working to destroy this atmosphere. Nashville pioneered the 287(g) movement where the city's police force has become an immigration enforcement agency to itself.



What happens when your community has a 287(g) agreement? Read this article in today's New York Times about the latest in a string of cases in Nashville that is, quite simply, abhorrent.

    Friendly to white people perhaps. I hear that US citizens who look "not really American" have also been harrassed, ie., Asian Americans. With all due respect to Greg, it is still the south.
