No democracy in Texas
“In March, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Texas’ Senate Bill 4, the unjust “Sanctuary Cities Law.” The law forces elected officials, from the governor to justices of the peace, to turn immigrants over to immigration agents. Public officials (many of whom have refused to comply with the law and provide sanctuary to immigrants) will be fined, jailed, or removed from their elected positions if they don’t comply.
American history shows that such fascist laws are tested first on the most vulnerable workers. But it doesn’t stop there. Now, anyone who ‘looks like an immigrant’ can be stopped, asked for papers, jailed and deported. Who will be next? It is urgent that we join the fight to repeal this law. There is no democracy in Texas.”
