//Federal District Court temporarily stops implementation of SB4

A Federal District Court in Texas granted the request for a preliminary injunction on Texas Senate Bill 4 (“SB4”), which means the law will not take effect September 1, 2017. SB4 is a ban on Sanctuary Cities and also uses local and state law enforcement to question the immigration status of residents, among other provisions. The court blocked the following provisions: the polices ability to question immigration status, mandatory ICE detainers in local jails, and the restrictions on the free speech of local officials.
