City Paper reports on TIRRC legislative reception

The Nashville City Paper summarizes the recent legislative reception organized by the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC).

"Among the legislators from Middle Tennessee attending were representatives Rob Briley, Mike Turner and Janis Sontany and Sen. Douglas Henry, each sponsoring bills this session favored by the Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC), which sponsored the event."

"TIRRC has singled out three immigration bills it wants the legislature to pass this session and four it opposes."

One of the opposed bills was defeated in committee after the TIRRC reception. That story was reported here on March 31.
