Gov. Bill Haslam

We only have a few more days to make our voices heard. The opposition is doing everything in their power to defeat this legislation.

Governor Bill Haslam is still facing a firestorm of opposition to the Anti-Sanctuary City Bill that passed the Senate 27-5 and the House 64-23.

Civil rights groups around the state and nation, including the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, National Immigration law Center, TN Immigration and Refugee Resettlement Coalition (TIRRC), American Civil Liberties Union, Southern Poverty Law Center, the City of Memphis, the City of Nashville, and others, are among those who have urged the Governor to veto the bill.

There has been a total disregard for the truth about what this bill does and does not do. Across the state, these deliberate misrepresentations have been used as propaganda and scare tactics.
