Law is in effect! US Appeals Court Upholds Texas’ Anti-Sanctuary Cities Law

DC: A federal appeals court upheld a majority of Texas law that targets sanctuary cities and cracks down on illegal immigration Tuesday afternoon.

A three-judge panel in New Oreans’ 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Texas’ current immigration enforcement laws are constitutional. Senate Bill 4 enacted the law allowing local law enforcement officers to question the immigration status of people they detain or arrest, The Texas Tribune reported.

The only part of the bill that remains on hold is a provision punishing local government leaders and or elected officials who refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials, such as the mayor of Oakland, Calif., who tipped off residents of an immigration raid. read more

    That’s too bad. Clear that up ASAP so Texas can start showing the nation how to deal with the problem at the root. Jail the politicians and word will get around that the law is not just for the unwashed.

    Even ex-presidents should not be exempt.

    Why? Where is the reporting on this? What about the provision doesn’t pass muster? These details must be known
