FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth voted not to join the lawsuit against SB4, the so-called ‘show me your papers’ law, making Fort Worth the only major city in Texas not to sue the state over the immigration law.
After nearly five hours of public comment on SB4, the City of Fort Worth voted to stay out of the legal battle.
Tuesday night, Fort Worth’s city council heard from nearly 300 residents for hours, most of them urging the city to join a lawsuit with other Texas cities to have the law thrown out. Only 10-15 residents spoke in support of SB4. They, too, begged city council to back “rule of the law” in the United States.
