Austin, TX –Today, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a frivolous lawsuit against San Antonio for refusing to comply with the Trump Administration’s Deportation Force.
Texas Democratic Party Deputy Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:
“The very reason law enforcement officials from across the state are against SB4 is that it ruins the trust and relationship between officers and the communities they serve.
“Ken Paxton’s dangerous lawsuit will instill fear in immigrant communities and force local law enforcement to choose between keeping their communities safe or aiding Trump’s deportation efforts.
“And let’s remember Ken Paxton shouldn’t be lecturing anyone on the interpretation of what the law is, he’s defending himself from a 99-year prison sentence.”
