Court upholds majority of 'sanctuary cities' law

Court upholds majority of 'sanctuary cities' law

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. Local sanctuary-city "ordinances regulate whether and to what extend the local entities will participate in federal-local immigration enforcement cooperation".

The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans allows Texas to enforce what critics call the toughest state-level immigration measure since Arizona passed what critics called a "Show Me Your Papers" law in 2010.

After Tuesday's ruling was announced, Abbott updated his followers on Twitter, highlighting that claims the bill would lead to racial profiling were rejected. SB 4 allows law enforcement to question the immigration status of people who have been detained or are under arrest.

In Texas, the fight over a new law known as Senate Bill 4 has raged for more than a year, roiling the Republican-controlled Legislature and once provoking a near-fistfight between lawmakers in the state Capitol.

A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the bulk of Texas' crackdown on "sanctuary cities" in a victory for the Trump administration as part of its aggressive fight against measures seen as protecting immigrants who are in the USA illegally. "Law is in effect".

"I'm pleased the 5th Circuit recognized that Senate Bill 4 is lawful, constitutional and protects the safety of law enforcement officers and all Texans", Paxton said.

On January 25, President Donald Trump ordered the resumption of the 2008 Secure Communities program that relied on information sharing among local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to identify and deport immigrants with criminal records.

Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton praised the decision, saying in a statement: 'Enforcing immigration law prevents the release of individuals from custody who have been charged with serious crimes'. Sanctuary supporters say enlisting police in deportation actions undermines community trust in local law enforcement, particularly among Latinos. Sessions admonished California politicians for not cooperating with federal authorities on immigration enforcement issues. Reacting to Tuesday's ruling, many of them expressed disappointment but also resolve. We are reviewing the Court's opinion to determine any additional steps that need to be taken.

"The court made clear that we remain free to challenge the manner in which the law is implemented, so we will be monitoring the situation on the ground closely", said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project.
