Posted on 09/28/2011 12:06:46 PM PDT by montag813
A Federal District Judge today upheld most of Alabama's new immigration enforcement law, H.B. 56. This ruling meaning those provisions are now in effect while lawsuits from parties as varied as the U.S. Department of Justice, ACLU, left-wing religious groups and - outrageously - the Mexican Government, move forward in her courtroom.
Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn's ruling represents a defeat for Eric Holder, as the main provision was upheld. And it represents a major victory for the people of Alabama, for Stand With Arizona, whose attorneys helped draft the legislation, and for Americans in other states trying to pass similar, Arizona-style laws in their own states. The ruling follows a ruling in June by Judge Thomas Thrash upholding most of Georgia's enforcement law, H.B. 87.
As part of Judge Blackburn's ruling, the following provisions and sections are now in effect in the state of Alabama.

It confounds me to think that somehow the Mexican Government would have ANY standing.
I am so sick of this crap.
“Muscle Shoals has got The Swampers, and they’ve been known to pick a song or two.... Sweeeeet Home Alabama!!!!
I’m comin home to you....
And of Course Obama is fighting this (along with the Mexican government) to protect the invading illegal alien criminal colonist vote.

The Obama administration on Friday asked a federal appeals court to block Alabama's strict new anti-illegal immigration law after a federal judge allowed key portions to take effect.
U.S. District Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn earlier this week backed the law authorizing police to detain people suspected of being in the country illegally if they cannot produce proper documentation when stopped for any reason.
The judge also upheld a provision that permits the state to require public schools to determine the legal residency of children. Federal judges in other states have blocked similar state laws aimed at trying to stem illegal immigration....
