CASE ENTRY

City of El Cenizo, Texas v. Texas

Texas law aimed at curtailing so-called “sanctuary cities” (wherein local officials limit their cooperation with federal immigration authorities) is challenged on a host of constitutional theories; district court enters preliminary injunction. Fifth Circuit: Which we now vacate; the law is constitutional, except for the provision that prohibits elected officials from “endorsing” sanctuary policies, which violates the First Amendment.
