Despite Supreme Court Decision, LUPE Remains Resolute in Fight Against SB4

San Juan, TX — La Unión del Pueblo Entero (LUPE) responds to the Supreme Court's decision to lift its temporary block of Texas anti-immigrant Senate Bill 4 (SB4) with resolve and determination to continue the fight for immigrant rights.

Tania Chavez Camacho, Executive Director of LUPE, expressed disappointment but remained undeterred by the Supreme Court's decision: 

“While we are disappointed that the Supreme Court has chosen to allow SB4 to go into effect, our commitment to justice and equality remains unwavering. We will not allow this setback to hinder our efforts to challenge the discriminatory nature of SB4 and protect the rights of immigrant communities. We have already filed a separate lawsuit against SB4 with the representation of MALDEF.

LUPE recognizes the challenges ahead but remains steadfast in its mission to advocate for the rights of its members and all immigrants affected by SB4. The fight against SB4 is far from over. We will continue to mobilize our community, engage in legal advocacy, and work tirelessly to dismantle the unjust provisions of this harmful law.

Despite this setback, LUPE remains resolute in its pursuit of justice and remains committed to standing with immigrant communities. Our members deserve to live with dignity and without fear of discrimination. We will persist in our efforts to create a more just and inclusive society where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.”
