Judge temporarily halts Texas sanctuary city ban

A federal district judge on Wednesday ruled to temporarily block a new Texas law that would have banned sanctuary cities in the state, just two days before the law was set to take effect.

Federal District Court Judge Orlando Garcia granted a preliminary injunction of the sanctuary cities ban, Senate Bill 4, saying in his ruling that the law would have eroded the relationship between local law enforcement and immigrant communities.
In a 94-page ruling, Garcia wrote that there “is overwhelming evidence by local officials, including local law enforcement, that SB 4 will erode public trust and make many communities and neighborhoods less safe,” adding that “localities will suffer adverse economic consequences which, in turn, will harm the state of Texas.”
The new law was pre-empted by federal immigration law, which supersedes state law, the judge found.

“The Court cannot and does not second guess the Legislature,” Garcia continued. “However, the state may not exercise its authority in a manner that violates the United States Constitution.”

  • Veteranasm

    Sounds like the judge is protecting his people , now following law !!!

    • jjmcl431

      that is exactly what he is doing. it is call the liberal or new Progressive way.

      • kassa1

        That by virtue of the founding fathers is what’s called S Tierney

      • Veteranasm

        It is called laraza , he is a wet back POS !!

    • Helen Hollingsworth

      He was appointed by Clinton…he also put through same sex marriage for Tx….said it was discrimination…

  • david

    Sounds like this judge is liberal and leans toward the illegal immigrants and not toward the people of Texas

    • jjmcl431

      With a name like Orlando Garcia do you have any doubts? call me a racist or bigot, i do not have any doubts which way he leans. he leans so far left he needs to be propped up to keep from falling over.

  • Helen Hollingsworth

    This what will happen all over if we get more and more of these Hispanics in power…Whitey will be shoved aside for their power grab…

    • Will

      sounds like you’re afraid of being in the minority. That’s because you KNOW how minorities are treated. Texas was Mexico for much longer than it’s been texas.

      • Helen Hollingsworth

        I will never be in the minority…you should go back across the Rio Grande and fight the cartels….be useful !

        • Will

          “back across the rio Grande” never been there.
          as for minority status. The US Census Burea says that childrfen under 18 will be non-white majority by 2020, and the total US population will be 56% non-white by 2060. About time.

          Have a good week; hope you weren’t in the storm. UNDOCUMENTED, of course, will be rebuilding Texas.

          • Veteranasm

            Not on your life , Texans will rebuild our state !!

      • Pamela Gilliam Haber

        Every liberal runs with this same old song….someone else’s country before we took it over. Texans fought and won a war with Mexico. We didn’t take it over. Why are you here taking advantage of what my forefathers fought for? Go live in Mexico!! But you will have to do it legally, as Mexico has very stringent laws governing immigration!

      • maggiemcgee

        Its still America and not Mexico.Need a lesson in geography?

        • Will

          Mexico is America. look at a map ;the name of our country is THE UNITED STATES. it is located in America. Mexicans live in America .North America is Mexico, THE US and Canada.

      • Veteranasm

        How would you know willy ??? I can tell you don’t live here in TEXAS , go pound sand punk !!

        • Will

          spend a lot of time in Texas; have loved ones there. Not a punk. Thanks for your service

  • Ken V

    Typical Meskin judge…Go back to Mexico Garcia and reunite with the cartel.

  • Will

    good, make the whole state of Texas SANCTUARY. It used to be Mexico. everybody knows it will be undocumented workers rebuilding Houston. Undocumented Texans died trying to help flood victims. they pay MILLIONS in taxes, and get no welfare. yes, really.

    • Helen Hollingsworth

      7 Pinocchios for you today !!!! Now go rev up your taco wagon and we will continue our conversation…….

      • Will

        ? ..that makes no sense. MY people have been here since the Mayflower. How about yours? As for your racist message.; you’ve shown who you are.

        • Helen Hollingsworth

          You people LOVE that word ! Everything is “rassist”…OH MY !! You must have been in steerage…

          • Veteranasm

            No just another know nothing yankee !!

          • Will

            nope, 3 signers of the Declaration of Independence. where did YOUR immigrant ancestors come from?

          • Helen Hollingsworth

            Why then do you disguise your identity ?

    • Pamela Gilliam Haber

      Sources and show your fact finding please!

      • Will

        government figures “Undocumented pay 11-14 (depending on site) BILLION in taxes yearly, and have paid 100 BILLION into the social security System in the last decade, without any hope of drawing from it”.Immigrants without documentation (and Dreamers) are not eligible torecieve monies from any government welfare or aid program.

  • Martin

    Kick him off the bench.

    • rick meek

      He will be …..

    “The Court cannot and does not second guess the Legislature,” Garcia
    continued. “However, the state may not exercise its authority in a
    manner that violates the United States Constitution.”
    To finish Judge Garcia’s statement “However a Judge may exercise its authority in a manner that violates the United States Constitution”.

  • BLKNYC

    Wonder who appointed this judge?

    • Helen Hollingsworth

      BO ,BO,BO !!!!!

      • Helen Hollingsworth

        Wrong, sorry…it was BC…and he put through same sex marriage…for Tx

  • mrmiller

    Another Lib? judge ignoring the Constitution.

  • bob

    erode public trust? he violates the oath he swore an then talks of trust

  • ENOUGH of this ‘Crapola’… Time for Trump to say ‘TOO BAD!.. and SHOVE IT where the SUN don’t shine!! Obozo did ANYTHING & EVERYTHING that really WAS illegal- and totally supported by these SUBVERSIVE liberal/progressive ( so-called ) JUDGES! DACA for instance was a totally ILLEGAL executive ( notice the small ‘e’ 0 order by Obozo! )

  • ReaperHD

    Time to end the BS that JUDGES get appointed for life, this judge and his family should be deported to any place but here. Tired of these buttholes blocking laws and putting Americans lives in danger. No to DACA DEPORT them all. Let them go back home and build up the country and people the left behind. If they work to change their country then they wouldn’t have to run away like cowards.

  • Steves704

    YES, it sounds likehispanic, protecting ILLEGALS, he shouldn’t even be on this case, he needs to remove himself, because of being personally involved

  • rick meek

    WHERE do they find these worthless A-holes……

    • Veteranasm

      By the Rio Grande !! Still wet on the back .

  • Larry Coleman

    With that opinion that judge just became a lawmaker instead of a judge. The state of Texas should tell that sorry ass pile of shit to go to hell & enforce the law.

  • Gardener8

    This is what we’ve come to expect from liberal judges. The voters should impeach
    these phonies in their respective states.

  • Uncle Jo

    This so called judge’s decision is a crock of shite. Sanctuary cities are illegal. Hence his decision has no effect.

    • Will

      why do you think over 400 some cities, countries, municipalities and, now, complete STATES have voted to become “Sanctuaries”? do your homework

  • Martin

    What a POS. Please leave our country judge.
