The Guardian -------- Activists have vowed to challenge a new Texas law that is the most significant attempt by a state to entwine itself in immigration enforcement since Arizona passed a hardline bill in 2010. Arizona became embroiled in boycotts and lawsuits after passing SB 1070, and Texas is gearing up for a legal fight after Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill Sunday night that bans so-called sanctuary cities and empowers police to check the immigration status of people they detain. Abbott signed the bill in a brief event streamed on Facebook Live with virtually no advance notice, apparently in an attempt to catch protesters unaware. Six days earlier, two dozen people, including an Austin city council member and a pastor, were arrested on trespass charges at a demonstration in a building housing one of the governor’s offices.
