The Mexican government, San Antonio’s police chief and Travis county sheriff have slammed Texas’ new ‘sanctuary cities’ law.

The measure lets police ask during routine stops whether someone is in the US legally and threatens sheriffs with jail if they do not cooperate with federal immigration agents.

Opponents fear it will lead to racial profiling and cause immigrant families to not report crimes over concerns talking to police could lead to deportation.

It has been blasted by critics as the country’s toughest on immigrants since Arizona’s crackdown in 2010 and they have vowed to challenge it in court.

Republican Governor Greg Abbott signed the law Sunday evening on Facebook Live with no advanced warning.

A few dozen people protested outside his mansion in Austin on Monday.

San Antonio police chief William McManus ripped into the Republicans who pushed the law through despite the objections of every big-city police chief in the state.
