Gov. Greg Abbott says he will sign Senate Bill 4, which would make it a state crime to cross the border between ports of entry, allow police to arrest people who do and require judges to order them to return to Mexico.
What is Senate Bill 4?
Can Texas enforce immigration laws?
Will SB 4 allow police to arrest any undocumented immigrant in Texas?
How will this affect asylum seekers?
How has the Biden administration responded?
How has Mexico responded?
