Mexico rages at Texas’ SB4 law

Mexico reacted strongly after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling Tuesday saw Texas’ controversial SB4 law come into effect for a few hours, although it is not clear whether any arrests of migrants were made during this time.

The SB4 law gives local and Texas state police officers the ability to stop and arrest anyone suspected of having crossed the border illegally.

The law was due to come into effect in early March but was challenged by the Biden administration, which argues that all immigration matters must remain in the hands of federal authorities. The SB4 law represents an unprecedented intrusion on federal power to set immigration policy, he said.

In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court refused the U.S. Department of Justice’s request to intervene in the case, and said the law could proceed while an appeals process plays out in lower courts.
