|Knox County, TN needs the nation to rally in support. Under the banner of “United Against Racism,” community members there have held weekly protests to stop the Sheriff, JJ Jones, from signing the County up for a racial profiling deportation program.
Even though the President himself has proposed phasing out the discredited 287(g) deportation program, Knox is one of two places that will see the program’s expansion this Summer unless we stop it.
Please listen to the community of Knox County. 287(g) should be ended not expanded.
Knox County families belong together. It’s police and ICE that should be separated.”
