Could S.A. Sue Over the “Sanctuary Cities” Law?

By Pilar Arias

San Antonio city council will be meeting with staff from the city attorney’s office Thursday to discuss filing a lawsuit to block Senate Bill 4.

District 4 Councilman Rey Saldana has been one of the loudest voices on city council to oppose the law that would allow police officers to ask someone about their immigration status while lawfully detained.

“SB 4 is a law that we believe is unconstitutional and discriminates,” Saldana said. “I think it tells the community that we’re willing to fight in any venue to make sure our community’s protected, immigrants or non immigrants.” He added the city would have to decide quickly whether to file suit, since the law is set to go into effect Sept. 1.
