On Monday, Starr County officials passed a resolution against the SB 4, making it the third county in the Rio Grande Valley to take a stance against the “Show Me Your Papers” law. Hidalgo and Cameron County have also passed resolutions.

“With the approval of the resolution, Starr County joins a growing number of Texas cities and counties approving measures to state their opposition to the law that forces local police agencies into the business of deportations,” John-Michael Torres of La Union Del Pueblo said in a statement.

Rio Grande City, McAllen, La Joya, and Palmview have also passed resolutions against SB 4 after community advocates urged city officials to take action against the law that is scheduled to be implemented on Sept. 1.
