Update: We recently learned that a signed memorandum of agreement (MOA) between ICE and Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “JJ” Jones has appeared on the ICE website. For more information, click here.
Please join us for a community briefing to learn more about Knox County’s recent application for 287(g). The 287(g) program, which authorizes local police to act as immigration agents, has a proven track record of abuses and civil rights violations.
We will discuss the current status of 287(g) in Knox County and what we have already done to fight back. Please join us to learn how you can be involved.
What: 287(g) Community Briefing
When: Saturday, May 20, 2 – 4 pm
