Is this the end of sanctuary cities in Texas?

As Texas prisons, both public and private, begin to fill up with undocumented immigrants that have criminal records, more cells may be necessary. Sanctuary cities have been in the crosshairs since the election of Gov. Greg Abbott. However, a new law may also target state law enforcement officials.

How do Texans feel about state and federal immigration policies?

When it comes to the subject of undocumented immigration, few states – border and otherwise – have been swept to the forefront of prominence more than Texas. Seemingly every day, new disputes arise as existing controversies continue to percolate.

The end of "catch and release?"

As the Trump administration continues to increase their enforcement of immigration laws, cases languish, numbering more than a half a billion. Thousands of nonviolent undocumented immigrants, including asylum seekers, remain locked in detention centers with their legal status in an uncertain “gray area.”

Jails for sale?

In spite of a presidential Executive Order-inspired ramp-up in immigration law enforcement efforts, many Texas county jails continue to struggle with a diminished population and growing debts. Detention centers have few, if any prisoners to fill their cellblocks.

Does automatic acquisition apply to your situation?

Many Texas residents came to the United States from other lands. Others are U.S. citizens planning marriages to people who are not yet citizens. You or someone you love may be familiar with the often complex and confusing laws pertaining to immigration. For example, a process known as "automatic acquisition" is primarily associated with children born outside the U.S. and/or children with one citizen-parent and one non-citizen parent. It can be quite challenging to understand the regulations that govern such matters.

Are courthouses becoming bait for undocumented immigrants?

When President Donald Trump requested that federal immigration agents step up deportations, arrests have significantly increased. However, a prominent judge is taking issue with the strategies employed in tracking down and arresting undocumented immigrants.
