She will not eat again until Wednesday, after the legislature votes on Senate Bill 4.
The bill would also allow the State of Texas to cut funding to institutions that don't comply with the law.
The bill would prohibit cities, counties and universities from preventing local law enforcement agencies from inquiring about a person's immigration status or enforcing immigration law, which Democrats like Neave believe would lead to racial profiling and community distrust in the police. More than 1,2000 immigrant families attended a local information session in the last few weeks, and teachers in her district have said that their students are anxious their parents will be deported. Governor Greg Abbott has called banning sanctuary cities with a bill like SB 4 an emergency priority.
The bills supporters say the it will prevent undocumented criminals from being released from jail and continuing their criminals acts. "Their second grade students are afraid of what is going to happen to them if their parents are deported".
"What else can I do to defeat this bill?" she said.
She said she previously took part in a five-day hunger strike in law school to bring attention to immigration reform.
As the daughter of an immigrant, Rep. Neave said fighting the bill is a personal and spiritual journey.
In a separate demonstration, as many as 750 immigrant detainees in Tacoma, Washington, launched a hunger strike earlier this month to protest conditions at the 1,500-bed Northwest Detention Center. He ended up opening his own TV/VCR fix shop in Mesquite, and helped Neave attend college and become a lawyer.
