Fort Worth council considering joining Sanctuary City lawsuit

🕐 1 min read

It could be early on Aug. 16 before the Fort Worth City Council votes on joining a lawsuit against Senate Bill 4, the law that requires area law enforcement officials to cooperate with federal immigration authorities and bars so-called “sanctuary cities.”

The law has criminal and civil penalties for local officials who do not comply with the law.

Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio have agreed to challenge the law’s constitutionality. Newly-elected Fort Worth Councilman Carlos Flores made the proposal to formally join the lawsuit on Tuesday night’s council agenda.

As of 11:15 p.m., residents were still commenting to the council on the law.
