Tennessee Anti-Racist Network started this petition to Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall

Tell Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall to stop his voluntary cooperation with ICE.

People across the U.S. are angered, saddened and ready to take action as we see the federal government's treatment of immigrants and refugees. We look at the detention facilities that are so overcrowded that people cannot even lie down to sleep. We see detention facilities where children are denied toothpaste and soap, and babies are without clean diapers and bottles. We see human beings dying in custody for lack medical care.

It all seems so far away.

But, it's not.

It's right here in Nashville.

Hill Detention Center, located in downtown Nashville and operated by Sheriff Daron Hall, consistently holds the largest number of ICE detainees in the state -- making Nashville home to the largest ICE detention facility in Tennessee.

The sheriff says the law requires that his office comply if ICE asks if there is an individual in custody. However, the law does not require the sheriff’s office to detain suspected non-citizens for ICE, allowing them to be carted off to a far-flung immigration detention facility run by private prison operators. The law does not require the sheriff’s office to detain ICE’s prisoners even without that person being charged with a crime. Sheriff Hall does both.

Sheriff Hall's office voluntarily cooperates with ICE to put more human lives into the deadly Deportation Pipeline.

Sign this petition to tell Sheriff Hall to STOP the Deportation Pipeline in Nashville.

This petition is sponsored by the Tennessee Anti-Racist Network and Women's March Tennessee, and will be delivered to the jail following Friday night's Lights for Liberty vigil in Nashville.
