SAN ANTONIO (Nov. 30, 2018) — The City of San Antonio released the following statement in response to the Texas Attorney General lawsuit filed today:

 

“While we need time to review the complaint, we are fully confident that neither the City nor Chief McManus violated the applicable provisions of SB 4,” City Attorney Andy Segovia said. “The Attorney General’s characterizations of what happened that day are clearly aimed at furthering a political agenda. The City has a long history of cooperating with federal authorities and we will continue to do so. The City’s process for handling human smuggling/trafficking incidents was created in coordination with the federal government, and federal officials have not taken issue with how we are handling immigration issues.”
