Chicago sources have stated that American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has taken the unusual step of issuing a travel advisory to US citizens as well as visitors against travelling to the southern state of Texas warning that “people of color” could be subject to profiling. The ACLU “travel alert” follows the passage of Senate Bill 4 (SB4), the so-called “sanctuary cities” bill, into law. Texas Governor Greg Abbot signed the bill into law in a Facebook Live event earlier this week.



SB4 requires law enforcement agencies across the state to honor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers. These are requests to hold someone in jail while their immigration status is checked out. The SB4 legislation is in response to Texas cities like Austin, that have come under fire for resisting full cooperation with ICE agents. SB4 penalizes police officers for the failure to detain and turn over undocumented immigrants to federal authorities.

ACLU said in a statement that “The law gives a green light to police officers in the state to investigate a person’s immigration status during a routine traffic stop, leading to widespread racial profiling, baseless scrutiny, and illegal arrests of citizens and non-citizens alike presumed to be “foreign” based on how they look or sound".



Texas is one of the states which have a large and growing number of Indian Americans, along with other states like New York, New Jersey, California and Illinois. Houston, the fourth largest city in the US, has grown into one of the most ethnically-diverse cities in the country.
