Texas Governor Greg Abbott plans to sign a bill making illegal border crossing a state crime, allowing Texas police to arrest illegal immigrants and imposing penalties for illegal crossings.

The bill has faced opposition, with critics citing concerns about racial profiling and federal authority over immigration policy.

“In two weeks, I’ll be signing a new law in the state of Texas that will make it illegal for people to enter the state of Texas from another country illegally and authorizing every peace office in the state of Texas to arrest those people entering our country illegally,” Abbott said.

“Federal courts, including the Supreme Court, have consistently held that the federal government has the sole authority to regulate immigration policy,” the National Immigration Law Center said.

“The Texas Legislature is wrong to have passed it, and Governor Abbott will be wrong if he signs it.”

“We call on Texas to abandon this cruel, illegal scheme and recognize that immigrants make Texas and our nation stronger.”

The issue raises questions about the balance of power between federal and state governments, with proponents arguing for state sovereignty in protecting citizens.
