Message from ACLU of Texas

Thanks to the hard work of our ACLU legal team and partners, a federal court decided to block most of Texas’s anti-immigrant law Senate Bill 4 (SB4) that was scheduled to take effect Sept. 1. This is an enormous victory for immigrants and their families.

Learn what the SB4 ruling means for Texas immigrants.

This victory is a direct result of the combined efforts of affected communities, cities, and counties. If SB4 had gone into effect on Sept. 1, it would have forcibly enlisted local law enforcement officers into Trump’s deportation force and targeted people of color, at a time when our community is recovering from one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history.

But this fight is not over. The State has already filed its appeal. We will continue to be vigilant of civil rights abuses by local officers.

Read the key parts of the Court’s decision.

Sincerely,

ACLU of Texas
