Sheriff Daron Hall could have practically run for Mayor with the fist taps he was getting from every other local government big wig (not the least of which, Metro Council) on his deportation program, which is not very effective at keeping illegal immigrants from returning to Nashville after deportation.
Hall is pointing his finger at the federal government, which is all fine and good. However two questions deserve to be asked. First, did Hall's program--absent any measurable results--ever deserve the love it got given that it is actually limited at keeping deportees out? Second, how many Metro programs are there whose directors can say that they do not have to depend on some sort of outside support or aid?
