NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Metro Immigration Task Force met for the first time today to discuss how city departments respond to requests from federal immigration agents.

The task force met in the mayor's conference room to make a plan for the city in regards to ICE agents and information they may request from the government.

Questions were developed at the meeting to send metro departments to ask how requests are responded to and if employees are trained to deal with federal agents at all.

The group is made up Nashville and Davidson County law enforcement officials, representatives from Metro City Council and members of immigrants rights groups, such as TIRRC.

The task force has 60 days to create a plan for the city. It's due on December 13.
