Press Release

San Antonio, TX – Today, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) issued the following statement after Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 4 into law: 
 
“The state legislature’s passage of SB 4 was a dark moment for Texas and for our nation. Now, Governor Abbott has signed the measure into law, legalizing the profiling of people based on their ethnicity and birthplace. Not only is this law morally wrong, it will strain our law enforcement and make our communities more dangerous. Our state leaders’ fearmongering is embarrassing and harmful to all Texans.”
