San Juan, TX — La Unión del Pueblo Entero (LUPE) celebrates the Supreme Court's decision to extend the temporary block on Texas anti-immigrant Senate Bill 4 (SB4). This pivotal moment represents a ray of hope for immigrant communities across Texas.

Tania Chavez Camacho, Executive Director of LUPE, expressed optimism about the Supreme Court's decision: 

“We are encouraged by the Supreme Court's willingness to extend the temporary block on SB4. This decision reaffirms our belief in the justice system and provides an opportunity to challenge the discriminatory provisions of this harmful law. LUPE sees this development as a significant step towards safeguarding the rights of immigrants and combating racial profiling. By temporarily blocking SB4, the Supreme Court has demonstrated a commitment to upholding constitutional principles and ensuring equal protection under the law. We remain steadfast in our resolve to fight for justice and dignity for all immigrant communities affected by SB4.

Our members deserve to live without fear of unjust laws that target them based on their immigration status. We will stand strong in our pursuit of justice and work towards a future where all individuals are treated with fairness and respect.”
