Federal Appeals Court Okays Texas' Law Allowing the Arrest and Jailing of Illegal Aliens

Greg Abbott @GregAbbott_TX


Federal appeals court allows Texas immigration law to take effect.

Law enforcement officers in Texas are now authorized to arrest & jail any illegal immigrants crossing the border.

Texas passed a law making the crime of illegal entry into the US a Texas crime in addition to a federal one. This gives Texas law enforcement the right to enforce this Texas law, even if Biden decides he's a King and can unilaterally repeal the federal law.

A federal appeals court has blessed the law.

CNN holds out hope:

Federal appeals court to allow controversial Texas immigration law to take effect, if SCOTUS doesn't intervene

A federal appeals court granted a temporary stay of a lower court's decision to block the enforcement of a controversial Texas immigration law, paving the way for it to go into effect this week if the Supreme Court doesn't intervene.

Last week, a federal judge in Austin, Texas, blocked the state government from implementing Senate Bill 4, which would allow state law enforcement authorities to arrest and detain people they suspect of entering the country illegally.

Judge David Alan Ezra wrote in his Thursday decision to halt the law that "If allowed to proceed, SB 4 could open the door to each state passing its own version of immigration laws."

Oh, no!!!

Texas appealed the ruling, with Republican Gov. Greg Abbott saying, "We will not back down in our fight to protect our state -- and our nation -- from President Biden's border crisis."

Over the weekend, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay of Ezra's decision but put its ruling on hold for seven days, allowing time for the Biden administration to go to the Supreme Court.

I still do not expect this law to survive in the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court in 2012 largely struck down a similar measure in Arizona dubbed the "Show me your papers" law. The high court concluded the federal government had the power to block the law but let stand a controversial provision allowing police to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws if there is "reasonable suspicion" that the person is in the US illegally.

But Texas is now citing the power of states to resist "invasion" as granting it the power to defend its own borders. The Supreme Court may buy into this claim, but I'm pessimistic.
