ยท Mar 20, 2024 ยท NottheBee.com

Just when we thought Texas was gonna be able to enforce immigration law in their state, a federal appeals court goes and does this.

Yes, just hours after the Supreme Court had allowed Texas to resume enforcement of their SB4 immigration law, which had the state deporting those who entered Texas illegally from Mexico, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ordered Texas to pause enforcement of the law. The court is set to hear arguments on SB4 today.

A federal appeals court Tuesday night ordered that a contentious new Texas immigration law be paused just hours after the Supreme Court said it could go into effect.

A three-judge panel of the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals split 2-1 in saying in a brief order that the measure, known as SB4, should be blocked. The same court is hearing arguments on the issue Wednesday morning ...

On the appeals court, Judges Priscilla Richman and Irma Carillo Ramirez voted to block the law. Judge Andrew Oldham voted for it to remain in effect while the court considers whether to block it.

We'll let you know when we hear more from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
