Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

BREAKING: Appeals Court Blocks More of Alabama Law, But Allows Police to Detain Immigrants

Rate this Entry

The 11th Circuit has issued a ruling blocking additional parts of the Alabama immigration law including a provision making it a crime for immigrants to not have proper documentation of their status. Also, the provision requiring schoold to check the immigration status of school children has also been enjoined. But one of the most controversial provisions allowing police offers to detain individuals suspected of being illegally present immigrants has been allowed to remain pending the court's later consideration of the case. Also, provisions barring state courts from enforcing contracts with illegally present immigrants and a bar on illegally present immigrants entering in to "business transactions" with the state (such as driver's and business licenses) have been allowed to stand.

    I bet the state will soon ask everyone to provide a SSN if they want to buy a can of soda.

    Meanwhile, on the illegal immigration support front:

    California

    Illegal immigrants get boost in new California laws
    By Matt O'Brien
    Contra Costa Times

    ...AB 1236, which prohibits local governments from making the federal E-Verify program mandatory for employers.

    Brown's biggest move on immigration was signing the California Dream Act, which allows thousands of undocumented students to apply for financial aid at state colleges and universities.

    But he also signed a law that will curtail police checkpoints and vehicle impoundments that have led to disproportionate detention of immigrant drivers and another law to protect the unionization rights of farmworkers, many of whom are unauthorized workers.

    NYC

    In the past, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and his advisers have defended the city's cooperation with immigration officials as a matter of public safety. But after extensive negotiations with Ms. Quinn's office, the administration decided to support the bill.

    Cook County defies government on immigration

    CHICAGO (AP) -- The release of more than 40 suspected illegal immigrants jailed in Cook County on felonies has added fuel to a contentious debate over public safety and local authorities' defiance of a White House program that aims to pursue more criminal deportations.

    The program depends on police and sheriff's deputies to hold suspected illegal immigrants who get arrested beyond the time when they would otherwise be released. But commissioners in the county around Chicago recently adopted a new law that orders the sheriff to ignore all federal requests to detain immigrants after they complete their sentences or post bail.

    That is what you get Jack when there is not a Federal Standard for everyone to follow, every state daces to it's own tune.... However I bet you if you review all of these things most of them stack up against the immigrants.

    "But Spencer said that of more than 50 people he recruited for the work, only a few worked more than two or three days, and just one stuck with the job for the last two weeks."
    "A four-person crew of immigrant workers can pick and box more than 250 crates of tomatoes in a day, Spencer said, or enough for each person on the crew to earn about $150 at the height of the harvest.
    A 25-person team of citizens recently picked and processed about 200 boxes in a day, he said, earning each member only $24. Spencer said the people weren't in good enough physical condition to work harder or longer hours and typically gave up when faced with acre after acre of tomato plants ready to be picked."
