Texas Cities Suit To Protect New Sanctuary Cities Law

Kenny Thornton | 10 May, 2017, 01:56

The Mexican government on Monday expressed its concern over a sanctuary law just passed in US state of Texas as it may be abused by overzealous anti-immigration authorities.

The lawsuit filed under the federal Declaratory Judgement Act, asks a judge to declare S.B.

As part of their argument against the County, attorneys cite the 142 detainer requests denied by Travis County between January 28 and February 3, 2017 - "more than any other local jurisdiction". They want to make sure that criminals are removed from the state and deported from the country, rather than remaining in Texas so they can victimize even more citizens of the state.

In several of the state's largest counties, including Dallas, sheriff's have issued policies reforming the way their offices deal with detainer request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for low-level offenses. The law takes effect on September 1.

And no, it's not even a four-door "coupe" like the 6-Series Gran Coupe that's still in production, not close. That month, combined sales of all 6-Series body styles came in at just 201 units for the United States.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who also supports the new law, pointed out that "in the past six years, criminal aliens have been charged with more than 566,000 crimes in Texas including kidnapping, homicide, burglary and much more". And local officials who prevent cooperation with federal immigration officers can be removed from office. "On information and belief, Defendants will sue Texas regarding the constitutionality of Texas law".

Paxton argues that it is constitutional and vital to security the state's border with Mexico. Greg Abbott signed into law on Sunday, allows peace officers to question the immigration status of people they legally detain or arrest, and it also allows for the punishment of department heads and elected officials who don't cooperate with federal immigration agents.

Firing back at the ACLU, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tweeted that a person has "nothing to worry about" if they're not breaking the law. Instead of being silenced by the Attorney General's threats, we will rise up and speak truth to power. The lawsuit said Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez has a policy and practice of refusing to comply with SB 4. "MALDE will do its level best, in court and out, to restore Texas, the state where MALDEF was founded, to its greater glory, and to help Texas overcome 'Abbott's Folly", MALDEF president Thomas Saenz said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

But Lawrence believes the specter of rights violations and illegal arrests is overblown, and a misinterpretation of the law. But groups like the Mexican American Legal Defense And Educational Fund (MALDEF) are ready to take on SB 4. "With this bill we are doing away with those that seek to promote lawlessness in Texas", the governor said in a news release.
