Federal vs. State Immigration Laws

However, states and local police work with the federal government for immigration policy enforcement. For example, under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) enacted in 1952, states such as Texas work to remove non-U.S. citizens who have committed crimes or otherwise pose a threat to U.S. communities.  

Current Immigration Policies in Texas

Gov. Greg Abbott initiated a state-led border security effort called Operation Lone Star in 2021. According to the Texas Tribune, the state installed razor wire, a floating barrier in the Rio Grande, and added thousands of Texas state troopers and National Guard soldiers to patrol parts of the state’s 1,254mile long border with Mexico.   

This makes it easier for police to arrest and prosecute undocumented people crossing the border from Mexico. It may affect the many families with mixed-status members, some of them documented and some not. The new law could mean that undocumented people applying for asylum could be arrested, prosecuted, and deported.

The Immigration Legal Process in Texas

The immigration legal process in Texas is a federal matter. The applicant may qualify for family-based visas, employment visas, or a visa for a spouse or fiancé of a U.S. citizen. The Texas State Law Library emphasizes that before entering this country, a foreign citizen must generally first receive permission from the U.S. government via the U.S. embassy or consulate in their country. Getting a visa is the first step in this process for many. To become a lawful permanent resident, a person will need to obtain a permanent resident card.
