Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick Asks Attorney General to Review Human Smuggling and/or Human Trafficking Arrest in San Antonio for Potential Violations of Sanctuary Cities Ban 

AUSTINTonight I sent the following letter to Attorney General Ken Paxton:

The Honorable Ken Paxton, Attorney General
Office of the Attorney General
P.O. Box 12548
Austin, Texas 78711-2548

Re: Potential Violation of Sanctuary Cities Ban

Dear Attorney General Paxton:

I am very troubled by the recent news reports of the San Antonio police chief releasing suspected illegal immigrants in a case of human trafficking or human smuggling without proper investigation,  identification of witnesses,  or cooperation with federal authorities.  Such action could be in direct violation of the recently passed Senate Bill 4 and threatens the safety of citizens and law enforcement.

Should your office receive a citizen complaint as required by Senate Bill 4, I encourage you to act swiftly to ensure San Antonio Police Department is in compliance with the law.

Thank you for all you do for our great state.
