Sign on to the Texas Association of Business’ Letter Opposing So-Called Sanctuary City Legislation

Dear Members of the Legislature,

On behalf of the undersigned businesses, we respectfully request your support for the Texas economy and our vibrant communities this legislative session. We are deeply concerned about so-called Sanctuary City Legislation proposed this session. We urge you to stop these bills so Texas will remain in good standing with businesses that might move to Texas and with members of the workforce that are already in short supply in many sectors. These proposals would hurt Texas business and impede prosperity for the people of our state.

A high profile state law that will do nothing to make us safer but will surely undermine goodwill is neither friendly nor good for business. Business leaders will think twice about locating their business in our state, just as we saw in Arizona following the passage of a similar law. Convention traffic and tourism will be negatively impacted. The newest generation to enter our workforce will be particularly unwilling to locate to a state seemingly opposed to diversity. The rich binational commerce from which Texas benefits is key to building our workforce and remaining competitive in a global marketplace.

Please consider the needs of our economy, employers, and future workforce and the economic ramifications a Sanctuary City bill would have on our state.

Signed,
