On "The Chris Salcedo Show" today, Chris Salcedo reported that the American Civil Liberties Union had issued a travel alert for Texas after Governor Greg Abbot signed SB4 into law. The legislation allows local law enforcement to check the immigration status of persons they have in custody.

ACLU director of immigration policy and campaigns Lorella Praeli said "The ACLU’s goal is to protect all Texans and all people traveling through Texas, regardless of their immigration status, from illegal harassment by law enforcement.”

She added "Many of us fit the racial profile that the police in Texas will use to enforce [President Donald] Trump’s draconian deportation force.” Praeli seems to be confused about SB4, as police are only authorized to check the status of persons already in custody. They can only stop people on grounds of immigration status if they are assisting a federal officer.

Chris was not upset by the travel advisory, stating illegal immigrants who have committed crimes are not welcome in Texas anyway. He suggested sojourns to California and New York instead.
