Police Chief Theron Bowman has suggested an ordinance that would let police arrest people in the entertainment district area if they have been convicted of a prostitution-related offense within the past two years.
If approved in August, the zone would be in place before the Feb. 6 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
But critics are already speaking out against the idea.
"You are talking about impeding people's right to gather," said Lisa Graybill with the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas. "We're talking about constitutional red flags."
She added that the ordinance could unfairly target women or people from a lower-income bracket, not the "well-dressed call girls."
