Court Says People 'Harboring' Immigrants Shouldn't Fear Law

Texas landlords and humanitarian workers who rent rooms or help immigrants in the U.S. illegally should not fear prosecution under a "harboring" provision that was part of a 2015 state border security measure, a federal appeals court said Thursday. The decision prompted an unusual celebration from both Texas Republican lawmakers — who say they were never going after landlords and shelters in the first place — and a civil rights group that worried the law could sweep up people other than human smugglers and kidnappers. The disputed portion of the law expanded smuggling to include someone who prompts a person to remain in the U.S. in violation of federal law by "concealing, harboring, or shielding that person from detection." A federal judge last year blocked Texas from enforcing the provision after some landlords and immigrant shelters sued over fears that the wording potentially left them criminally liable.
