US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities'

US Appeals Court Upholds Texas's Ban on 'Sanctuary Cities' | 13 March 2018 | A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the bulk of Texas's crackdown on "sanctuary cities" in a victory for the Trump administration as part of its aggressive fight against measures seen as protecting immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally. The ruling by a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans allows Texas to enforce what critics call the toughest state-level immigration measure since Arizona passed what critics called a "Show Me Your Papers" law in 2010. The law allows police officers to ask people during routine stops whether they're in the U.S. legally and threatens sheriffs with jail time for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
