The City of San Antonio filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas Thursday over a recent bill signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott banning sanctuary cities.

The lawsuit alleges the unconstitutionality of SB4, a law that prohibits city governments from shirking federal immigration law by becoming sanctuary cities, according Fox San Antonio. The Mexican American Legal Defense And Education Fund (MALDEF) filed the suit on behalf of San Antonio City Councilman Rey Saldana, who announced the lawsuit without a vote from the city council.

“The city in its entire 300-year history has never sued the state of Texas over anything,” City Councilman Joe Krier told Fox. “I am opposed to suing the state over this particular issue, but I am particularly opposed without a vote of the council.”
