Alabama Federal Judge Refuses to Strike Provisions in New Law

CBS September 28, 2011. The NewYorkTimes has called this policy the cruelest in the nation. According to CBS, "The court fight will likely continue over Alabama's immigration law, now that a judge has refused to block key parts of it. The federal judge says some parts of the law are in conflict with federal statutes, but others aren't. She's letting stand the part of the law that requires immigration status checks of public school students. She's also refusing to stop provisions that allow police to hold suspected illegal immigrants without bond, and that make it a felony for an illegal immigrant to do business with the state. The judge's order temporarily blocks four parts of the law until she can issue a final ruling. They include a provision making it a crime to transport or harbor an illegal immigrant, and one that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to solicit work."
