Breaking: Justice Department Asks Appeals Court to Block Alabama Immigration Law

Rate this Entry

From the AP:



The federal government asked an appeals court Friday to halt the Alabama immigration law considered by many the toughest in the U.S., saying it could have dire diplomatic consequences abroad, invites discrimination and merely forces illegal immigrants into neighboring states.


The motion, filed in the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, claimed Alabama's new law is "highly likely to expose persons lawfully in the United States, including school children, to new difficulties in routine dealings."



The District Court judge's ruling was pretty surprising so I'd be surprised if the 11th Circuit ignores the request.

    The feds will win some and loose sum if they put all the state laws together and sue that only the feds have the right to regulate immigration. The justices will be forced to take a stance on state rights...whether states ranging from CA to AL have the right to legislate on immigration. If they say yes, the antis will be forced to accept the fact that CA and MD have the right to pass their own laws. If not, the antis loose out in AZ, AL and GA while the pros loose in CA and MD. If they keep challenging each law separately, the antis could win everywhere.
