Texas Latinos Launch 100 Days of Resistance to Protect Sanctuary Cities

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Taking aim at the new Texas law that bans sanctuary for undocumented immigrants, Latino activists on Monday are announcing the start of 100 days of organizing against SB4 that will include everything from voter drives to civil disobedience.

At a morning press conference outside the Austin mansion of Governor Greg Abbott, organizers with the Latino advocacy group Jolt announced the new campaign just over one week after Abbott, a Republican, signed the controversial bill into law.
