Judge Upholds Most of Alabama’s Tough Immigration Law (Victory on H.B. 56!)
Stand With Arizona ^ | 09-28-2011 | John Hill

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.


The provisions/sections Blackburn has blocked, pending trial, include the following.

pastors, who routinely help illegal aliens break the law and obtain benefits
What bible are these pastors reading from ? They seem cool with fake or stolen documents being used, just fine with lying on I-9 tax forms, is there another bible written in regard to illegals and the church ?

It confounds me to think that somehow the Mexican Government would have ANY standing.

I am so sick of this crap.

Obama administration appeals Alabama immigration law

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....
