U.S. Supreme Court set to make decision on Texas Senate Bill 4 Monday

That law would allow law enforcement to arrest people they suspect of being here illegally.

WASHINGTON D.C., DC — The U.S. Supreme Court is set to make a decision on Texas Senate Bill 4 on Monday.

It would allow law enforcement to arrest people they suspect of being here illegally. The new law was suppose to take effect last week but the high court extended a pause for review.

Justices are trying to decide whether the bill is constitutional. Last month, a federal judge in Austin halted SB 4 over concerns of its potential impacts on immigration in Texas.

Recently, the high court extended the pause but that is set to expire on Monday.

In December, Governor Greg Abbott signed SB 4 into law, which was suppose to take effect March 5. The law was then challenged when critics deemed it was unconstitutional.

Under SB 4, law enforement would have the power to arrest people accused of crossing the border illegally. It will also also local judges to return migrants to Mexico if convicted.

In his order, U.S. District Judge David Ezra argued that if a state arrested and deported migrants eligible for political asylum, that would violate the constitution.

Now, it’s in the hands of the justices to decide. That pause is set to expire Monday at 4 p.m.

We’ll keep you updated on what happens next.
