Thread: Judge Halts Alabama Immigration Law

  1. Icon1 Judge Halts Alabama Immigration Law

    Alabama’s new immigration law, giving police the power to verify the immigration status of people stopped for questioning, was temporarily blocked by a U.S. judge three days before it was scheduled to take effect.

    U.S. District Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn in Birmingham today barred enforcement of the law that includes provisions requiring police to verify the status of people stopped whom they suspect may be in the country illegally. The law also makes it a crime to knowingly rent housing to unlawful immigrants.

    Christian clergy, the federal government and the American Civil Liberties Union asked Blackburn to halt the measure’s enforcement. Alabama deputy attorneys general John Neiman and Misty Fairbanks said the state has the right to police people in its own borders.

    “In entering this order, the court specifically notes that it is no way addressing the merits of the motions,” Blackburn said in her two-page decision.

    The judge said she’ll determine the legality of the act no later than Sept. 28 and that her order remains in effect until Sept. 29 or until she issues that ruling.

    State Attorney General Luther Strange declined to comment on today’s decision, said a spokeswoman, Suzanne Webb.

    Looks like conservatives are trying to throw anything at the wall to see what sticks. So far. . .nada.

    If it's stopped for now, good. I won't get my hopes up until the judge rules.

    That's my personal opinion of it anyways. But if the judge rules it consuitonal, then the ruling stands. If it's decalred unconsuitonal, then it's that, and nothing more.

    so, it now seems acceptable to hand tie the police from enforcing laws
    If the emperor is naked, and despite fear of insults, we are duty bound to state the obvious.

    Another undemocratic, autocratic order from an unelected judge who answers to no one and serves for life.

    We need term limits for federal judges.

    Along with deporting illegal aliens we will have to cut off welfare to make Obama voters accept those jobs.

    ....

    What happens when a policeman stops an American citizen? Or when an American citizen checks in for his flight at any airport? When an American citizen goes to the bank to withdraw some of his money? Why is a citizen subject to questioning, forced to provide evidence of who he is, going thru scanning and gates, subject to having his purse, luggage, shoes, clothing and body searched....but an illegal alien doesn't have to provide anything because it is unconstitutional?....and the fact that he cannot speak English doesn't let the policeman know that he is an illegal alien? That is freakin' unconstitutional too?

    The American citizen is asked daily to provide proof as to who he is, whereas an illegal alien doesn't have to provide any type of proof that he is even in America. A legal immigrant here on a temporary work visa, also has to provide identification and give information and is subject to all searches that American citizens are subject to.

    There is something wrong with this picture, and we should all ask why is there such a discrepancy in treatment of U.S. citizens asnd non treatment of illegal aliens. Could it be that illegals are supplying a valuable service to huge corporations with cheap help thus giving them even more profit, all with the encouragement and acceptance of our government?

    I have the local paper in my hand. The one half page of want adds consists of an 8.00 an hour caregivers job, 10.00 selling Avon (right!) , in home sales, one for mechanic/assembler, part time nanny,sales assoc., and the rest are nurses RN/LPN, and truck drivers.

    22 want adds...I think it would be safe to say there aren't many jobs out there. That is counting part time jobs and scams. I even counted the one wanting you to show siding and roofing on your home.

    What would be the motive of people wishing to stop the enforcement of illegal immigration laws? People who profit from illegal immigration, would obviously oppose this legislation, and people who don`t wish the State to have the right to self determination.
