Without 287(g), What Does the Sheriff Have?

The Tennessean has Daron Hall's response to a GAO report on ICE failures at stopping violent criminals in the immigrant community.

Here's part of what the GAO concludes:
Taken together, the lack of internal controls makes it difficult for ICE to ensure that the program is operating as intended. ICE and participating agencies used program resources mainly for personnel, training, and equipment, and participating agencies reported activities and benefits, such as a reduction in crime and the removal of repeat offenders. However, officials from more than half of the 29 state and local law enforcement agencies we reviewed reported concerns members of their communities expressed about the use of 287(g) authority for minor violations [like speeding] and/or about racial profiling.
