National Latin Organization Files Lawsuit Over SB 4

Local News

The League of United Latin American Citizens is looking to prevent SB 4 from going into effect in September. LULAC officials say the so-called “Sanctuary Bill” is very detrimental to the immigrant community.

The new state law will make it a crime for law enforcement to refuse cooperation with federal immigration officials. It also allows local police to ask a person about their immigration status. LULAC’s national president told us about the lawsuit the organization filed against the state.

Roger Rocha, “All it did was further widen the divide that’s happening in Texas along racial lines. Therefore, when it was signed into law, we were the first organization, and the only organization to say… No, this is wrong. Therefore, we filed a lawsuit against it, for the law to become null and void, and voided by the courts.”

Rocha is trying to encourage other pro-immigration groups to follow in their footsteps and file lawsuits of their own.

Rocha added, he’s optimistic that they can prevent the law from going into effect.
