Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Alabama Law Injunction Partially Lifted

Rate this Entry

The 115 page decision can be found here (thanks Bender's Immigration Bulletin). The decision lifts the earlier temporary injunction on checking students and holding suspected illegally present immigrants without bond as well as the bar on enforcing contracts involving illegally present immigrants, the new felony provision for illegally present immigrants doing business with the state and the new misdemeanor for illegally present immigrants not having immigration papers.

The order did continue the block on four other parts of the law including

- the crime of soliciting work

- the crime of transorting or harboring an illegally present immigrant

- the new right to sue for discrimination if US workers are dismissed and illegally present immigrants are hired and

- the bar on deducting from taxes wages paid to workers illegally present.

More on the decision can be found in this report from the AP.

    I am pretty certain the decision will be appealed and will be put on hold again.

    Companies Use Immigration Crackdown to Turn a Profit

    Especially in Britain, the United States and Australia, governments of different stripes have increasingly looked to such companies to expand detention and show voters they are enforcing tougher immigration laws.

    There you go Jack something for you to cheerleader about, make that money baby and keep being a hypocrite about the whole immigration agenda and "enforcing the laws"!!!!

    The law has been challenged by the U.S. Department of Justice and civil rights groups, and Judge Sharon Blackburn has suspended its enforcement until she makes a ruling on its constitutionality. That ruling is scheduled to be handed down by September 28. But farmers say Hispanic workers have already begun to leave the state.
