Sanctuary Cities Ban
On May 7, 2017, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed legislation (S.B. 4) banning sanctuary cities in the state of Texas. The law mandates that campus police departments, local government entities, and law enforcement officials comply with federal immigration laws and detainer requests. The law also creates civil and criminal penalties for entities that do not enforce the law.
The law was effective upon enactment.
