Miyares sides with Texas in battle over immigration enforcement

Miyares sides with Texas in battle over immigration enforcement

Va. attorney general part of 22-state coalition backing Lone Star State leaders

OFFICE OF THE VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL
about 6 hours ago

RICHMOND, Va. – Attorney General Jason Miyares has joined a 22-state coalition supporting a Texas law that makes illegal immigration a state crime and authorizes state officials to enforce it.

Texas’s state law, SB4, makes illegal immigration into Texas a state crime and allows state magistrates and judges to order those who have crossed the border illegally back to the country from which they entered. The U.S. government and private plaintiffs filed suit over the law. A U.S. District Court blocked the law, and the case is currently before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
