Federal Court Rules In Favor Of Texas' Sanctuary Cities Ban

 

A panel of federal judges is ruling in favor of the ban on sanctuary cities in Texas.  Yesterday, the decision by a three judge panel on the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld a 2010 Texas immigration measure.  Among other provisions, the law gives license for Texas law enforcement officers to ask for a suspect's residential status during routine stops.  

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tweeted his approval saying the law, quote "protects the safety of law enforcement officers and all Texans."
