The bill would also allow the State of Texas to cut funding to institutions that don't comply with the law.
The bill would ban cities, counties and universities from preventing local law enforcement agencies from asking about a person's immigration status or enforcing immigration law.

Neave, whose father entered the country illegally but is now a USA citizen, takes the proposal personally.
While response has been positive, she added, there have been some negative comments on social media and even death threats - but those haven't broken her fast.
"I feel fine. I feel healthy, and I'm going to pray", said Neave. "And so for me, that was doing it spiritually".
