#64: Texas Immigration Battle Goes National
Demonstrators filled the Texas House of Representatives on Monday to protest Texas Senate Bill 4 (SB4), which Governor Abbott signed into law earlier this month. The law bans sanctuary cities in Texas, and it gives police officers broad authority to question people’s immigration status. The protest escalated to the point that two state representatives each claimed their lives were threatened by the other.
What does this law actually allow police to do, why is it provoking such outrage now, and what does it mean for the future of Texas — and the rest of the country?
Host Julio Ricardo Varela leads a discussion with Delia Garza, Austin City Council Member for District 2, and Roque Planas, National Reporter for The Huffington Post.
