El Paso commissioners pass anti-border wall resolution
— Houston Chronicle2

County commissioners are opposing construction of a wall along the nation’s southern border with a resolution.

The El Paso County Commissioners Court voted 3-1 Monday in favor of a resolution that calls for stopping the building of the border wall and says local law enforcement officials should not enforce federal immigration laws.

The resolution also emphasizes placing a moratorium on immigration raids, ensuring the enforcement of labor laws and civil protection regardless of a worker’s immigration status and stopping programs that criminalize immigrants.
