La Union del Pueblo Entero has joined a lawsuit against the State of Texas because we cannot understand and we will not tolerate the basic premises of this hateful law. We must not allow our local law enforcement to be willing participants in the business of deportations. The reality is that our communities are safer when more of us have access to due process and equal justice. We believe in an America in which all of us, no matter skin tone, place of birth, or what we have in our past, is viewed as fully human, with dignity and value as part of our nation.
SB4 was not needed and if this law goes into effect, the community will hold our local law enforcement accountable by documenting abuses and filing civil rights violations against any peace officer that violates our rights. In order to defeat SB4 we need the support of the community.
