Top Stories: Fort Worth City Council Will Debate Joining Sanctuary Cities Lawsuit
The top local stories this morning from KERA News:
The Fort Worth City Council today will hear presentations at a work session about whether to join a lawsuit against the state's new sanctuary cities law.
So far, Fort Worth is the largest city in Texas not to do so. The city council won't make a decision today, but it will likely give staff direction on what’s to be done next.
Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio have already joined the suit filed by Maverick County.
