Some Parts of Alabama Law Blocked By Federal Appeals Judge

 On Friday, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocked enforcement of two sections of Alabama’s immigration law, the worst of its kind in the nation. The section of the law requiring that students and their parents produce immigration documentation to register for school has been enjoined.

The court also halted enforcement of a clause in the law that made a person who could not provide proof of legal status a criminal.

While this is a welcome development, there are a number of other draconian elements of the law that continue to be enforced and that have created a humanitarian crisis. I’ll look at some of these later this week.
