SB4 Passes – SB4 Aprobado

The Texas Legislature passed SB 4, known as the “sanctuary cities” law. The law allows officers to question immigration status of people they detain or arrest. It also punishes department heads and elected officials who don’t cooperate with federal immigration “detainers”—requests by agents to turn over immigrants subject to possible deportation. Opponents—including cities such as Houston, Austin, and San Antonio—are seeking a temporary injunction of the rule, which is scheduled to go into affect on September 1st.

La legislatura de Texas aprobó SB4, en contra de las “ciudades santuarios”. Esta ley da permiso a la policia a preguntar el status de las personas que detienen o arrestan. También castiga a jefes de departamentos y oficiales que no cooperan con las ordenes de detención inmigratorias. Las ciudades opositoras – como Houston, Austin y San Antonio—estan buscando suspender esta ley, que entrara en vigor el 1 de Septiembre.
