ACLU Warns: Traveling to Texas May Result in Violations of Constitutional Rights

AUSTIN, TEXAS - A 'travel alert' has been issued for Texas, The United States Civil Liberties Union sent an adviser after the signing of the country's "holy city" law. The ACLU warns visitors that their constitutional rights may be violated if stopped by law enforcement.

"The purpose of the ACLU is to protect all Texans and all those traveling through Texas - regardless of their immigration status - from illegal harassment by law enforcement," said Lorella Praeli, director of immigration and campaign policies of the ACLU. "Texas is a homeland with below Mexican roots and home to newcomers from all avenues of life, many of us according to the ethnic profile that police in Texas use to reinforce Trump's injurious deportation rules".

Governor Greg Abbott signed the law into Sunday night legislation on Facebook live. The Senate 4 bill punishes officials who do not fully comply with federal immigration officials. It also allows peacekeepers to question the immigration status of people they are legally arrested or arrested.

Proponents say it's about keeping the Texans safe. But many law enforcement agencies, immigrant rights groups and faith-based organizations say that the law opens the country for racial profiling and can hurt public relations and the police.

The ACLU said between 2008 and 2012, ICE requested local law enforcement to house 834 U.S. residents, some of whom then spent several days in jail as a result.

"It's only a matter of time before illegal arrests occur, local law enforcement must decide between violating a person's rights and getting a heavy fine, being thrown into prison, or even expelled from the office for choosing not to do so," said Terri Burke, executive director of ACLU Texas.

The ACLU says a number of other state affiliates have also issued their own travel advice against Texas. That includes:

California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Wisconsin, Wyoming

The law does not apply until 1 September. But the ACLU says it plans to go against the law in court.

The ACLU material "Know Your Rights" is available in various languages, anyone who believes their rights have been violated due to SB4, are required to contact the ACLU Texas at 1-888-507-2970.
