Default Appeals Court Suspends Parts of Alabama's Immigration Law

Appeals Court Suspends Parts of Alabama's Immigration Law
A federal appeals court on Friday suspended parts of Alabama's tough immigration law while it considers the Justice Department's request to strike it down.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta ruled that Alabama cannot prosecute illegal immigrants for not carrying registration documents with them at all times or require schools to check the immigration status of all students.
But the court said Alabama, among other things, can require police officers to verify the immigration status of anyone they lawfully stop if they suspect they are in the country illegally. Illegal immigrants will also be prohibited from obtaining a license to drive, get a vehicle or open a business.
The Justice Department opposes Alabama's law, claiming it invites discrimination against foreign-born citizens and legal immigrants and is at odds with federal policy.
A final decision on the law won't be made for months to allow time for more arguments.
Immigration has become a contentious issue in Alabama over the last 10 years as the state's Hispanic population grew by 145 percent to about 185,600. While the group still represents only about 4 percent of the population, some counties in north Alabama have large Spanish-speaking communities and schools where most of the students are Hispanic.

That's not too bad. Requiring illegal immigrants to carry registration documents is kind of a legal absurdity, unless they are talking about vehicle registration. And of course it is not necessary to check the immigration status of all students.

But restricting vehicle ownership and business licenses away from illegals is worth the whole thing. And allowing the requirement to verify immigration status is also great progress.

Just the fact that our gov is again trying to stop a state from protecting its people will anger citizens across the country. This fed gov is poking at a sore and once they infect it they'll have a very hard time healing it. They just don't know when to back away.

The American people are starting to get their marching orders and the open borders/leftists/globalists better watch out. They've pushed some way too far, and the push back has already started.

Alabama is probably the most recent state to enact very stringent immigration management. Portions of the regulation have already been stopped, however. Sorting out the constitutional and legal problems, however, could take months or years to completely sort out in court. Portions of Alabama immigration law blocked by injunction. Since the Alabama immigration law went into effect, economic activity in Alabama has significantly slowed. Many industries around Alabama have essentially shut down as many employees stage one-day “sick-outs” or are essentially walking off the job entirely. Absentee rates at many schools are significantly spiking and many Alabama farmers are facing fields full of crops they simply cannot find the employees to help harvest.
