Episode 91 – On this episode of Latino Business Report, all eyes are on Texas and its controversial Senate Bill 4, also known as SB4. This legislation has sparked nationwide attention, as it grants Texas unprecedented powers in immigration enforcement.

Host J.R. Gonzales dives into the debate surrounding SB4, arguing it represents a significant overreach and potential profiling. Joined by Kristen Etter, Director of Policy and Legal Services for the Texas Immigration Council, they dissect the complexities and implications of this contentious law.

Immigration enforcement has always been a federal matter, but SB4 shifts significant authority to state law enforcement.
