Immigration anger drives lawmakers - Nashville, Tennessee - Tuesday, 01/09/07 -, 9 Jan 2007 [cached]
"This program doesn't need any legislation. … It can be restarted administratively," said David Lubell, state director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.

"We can't emphasize enough that if this program is implemented in a way where someone could be deported simply for driving without a license, then that's not the kind of program that was pitched at the outset," said David Lubell, president of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.
"The way forward has to be that they say we're going after people with criminal records," Lubell said "If someone comes into the jail with a criminal record, fine, those are the people we should be dealing with, not people who have no other record and are simply in for traffic violations."
Lubell suggested including in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) - the document written by the Sheriff's Office and DHS that governs local implementation of the program - a written policy spelling out that traffic violators would not be targeted.
"That would start the conversation," Lubell said.
