TOP Ed Fund Statement on SB4 Decision

The following is a statement by Michelle Tremillo, executive director of the Texas Organizing Education Fund, on the San Antonio Federal Court’s decision stopping nearly all of SB4, Texas’ racial profiling law:

“We are so grateful to have courts who protect our rights and freedoms, and keep overzealous legislators in check. SB4 would have encouraged and legalized racial profiling of Latinos and other communities of color.

“This decision today feels like a ray of sunshine, and Texans, especially undocumented Texans, deserve a reprieve in what has been a steady assault on their families.

“We recognize this is just the first step in what we expect to be a protracted legal battle. Today, we will take a deep sigh of relief, and tomorrow we will keep fighting to stop SB4 in the courts and win proactive solutions that protect the freedom and dignity of undocumented families and all people of color.”
