Opponents of Texas' Sanctuary Cities law will fight back against a recent ruling.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that Senate Bill Four can remain in affect, after it was partially blocked by a judge last summer.

Senate Bill Four punishes cities that ask their police to refrain from asking a person about their immigration status. It also threatens elected officials with jail time.

Attorneys and immigrants rights groups say the law could increase police traffic stops of Hispanics.

The law was backed by the Trump Administration, which has joined Texas in court to defend the measure.

Attorneys and immigrants rights groups say they're considering a hearing before the entire Fifth Circuit Court, or possibly the U.S. Supreme Court.
