US court gives new pause to entry into force of ‘anti-immigrant law’

The Supreme Court of the United States put on a new indefinite pause the entry into force of Law SB4 in the state of Texas, described as the anti-immigrant law because it criminalizes anyone who crosses the border illegally, making them deserving of criminal sanctions above than established by federal legislation.

Just minutes before the ruling that suspended the entry into force of Law SB4 expired (4:00 p.m. local time) this Monday, the Supreme Court extended the delay of SB4 due to a new analysis that has no deadline or date to be issued. know.

The law, promoted by the government of Republican Greg Abbott, has been criticized by the Government of Mexico and the federal government of the United States, as well as pro-migrant organizations because it would allow elements of the local and state police to detain people under the suspects that they are not Americans and that they had entered the country irregularly.

After its approval last November, Mexico expressed its rejection of this law because by criminalizing migration it would promote “the separation of families, discrimination and racial profiling.”

“The Government of Mexico recognizes the sovereign right of any country to decide the public policies that should be executed in its territory. However, it respectfully expresses its legitimate right to protect the rights of its nationals in the United States, as well as to establish its own immigration policies into its territory.

“In that sense, the Government of Mexico categorically rejects any measure that allows state or local authorities to detain and return nationals or foreigners to Mexican territory,” he said in a statement.

Joe Biden’s government promoted legal resources to stop the legislation from coming into force.

“Because federal law preempts SB4 and violates the United States Constitution, the Department of Justice seeks a declaration that SB4 is invalid and an order preliminarily and permanently enjoining the state from enforcing the law.” , the Department of Justice said in a statement in early January of this year.

“Texas cannot ignore the United States Constitution and the precedent set by the Supreme Court,” said Principal Deputy Attorney General Brian M. Boynton, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division.

“We have brought this action to ensure that Texas adheres to the framework adopted by Congress and the Constitution for the regulation of immigration.”
