In the United States, a controversial Texas law on illegal immigration has just been suspended for a second time by a federal court.

Signed last December by Governor Greg Abbott, S.B. 4 would make illegal first or second entry into Texas from a foreign country a state crime and would allow state judges to order violators to leave the United States, with prison sentences of up to 20 years for those who refuse to comply.

State appeals judge's ruling preventing it from being enforced, pending the outcome of an appeal filed by Democratic President Joe Biden's administration and civil rights groups.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit — sometimes called the 5th Circuit — initially stayed the ruling blocking S.B. 4. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld that ruling Tuesday, briefly allowing Texas to x27;enforce the law. But hours later, in an unusual move, the 5th Circuit scheduled an emergency hearing for Wednesday and overturned its earlier decision by a 2-1 vote.
