White House Office of Public Engagement associate director Julie Chavez Rodriguez sent an email to the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition yesterday, which contained a letter indicating Immigration and Customs Enforcement will not sign Knox County's controversial 287(g) agreement. Thomas Homan, the executive associate director of ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations, signed the letter.
However, the letter is not dated. Knox County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Martha Dooley said Sheriff Jimmy "J.J." Jones "has not received anything" from ICE since he signed the 287(g) agreement last month. Stay tuned for more on this story.
