Federal Judge Blocks Parts Of Georgia’s Immigration Law

Filed by KOSU News in US News.

A federal judge granted a request to block parts of Georgia’s immigration law.

The AP reports:

Judge Thomas Thrash on Monday blocked parts of the law that penalize people who transport or harbor illegal immigrants. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can’t provide proper identification.

As we reported in April, the law faced opposition from both agricultural business and Latino activist organizations. Civil liberties groups asked a court to declare the law unconstitutional.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a motion for a preliminary injunction arguing that Georgia’s new law among other things “unlawfully interferes with federal power and authority over immigration matters.” [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
