Federal appeals court puts a hold on Texas’ tough immigration law, SB4, after Supreme Court allowed it to take effect temporarily.

The law would let Texas detain and prosecute unauthorized migrants, but Mexico refuses to accept them. The Biden administration challenges SB4, arguing it’s unconstitutional.

If reinstated, SB4 would change how immigration enforcement works, going against previous rulings that only the federal government can enforce immigration laws.

Mexico and the US Department of Justice criticize SB4, calling it anti-immigrant and warning it could strain US-Mexico relations.

The Supreme Court’s decision allowed SB4 to proceed temporarily, but a federal appeals court later freezes it. This law, signed in December, has faced legal challenges delaying its enforcement.

Immigration remains a significant concern for Americans, particularly with the upcoming White House election.
