At Quiroga Law Office, PLLC., we anticipated the decision by a federal judge in Texas against the implementation of SB4, signed by Governor Greg Abbott in December 2023. This legislation, which would allow local and state authorities to arrest and deport individuals suspected of entering Texas without federal authorization, faced predictable legal objections. 

We agree that the law conflicts with the federal principle of immigration management, and the judicial decision to block it does not surprise us. Despite Governor Abbott’s intent to appeal, we maintain that SB4 violates the U.S. Constitution and threatens to separate families and promote racial profiling. 

At Quiroga Law Office, PLLC., we reaffirm our commitment to defending the rights of immigrants and fighting against legislation we deem harmful to our nation’s values, focusing on justice and equity for all. 

It was entirely predictable that a Texas federal judge would rule against SB 4 – Rio Grande Guardian
