Appeals Court Blocks Portions of Alabama Immigration Law

A panel of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked two portions of the controversial Alabama immigration law from going into effect, but has allowed the state to begin enforcing other parts of the law. The panel found that the United States had met its burden for an injunction pending appeal in regards to the sections of the law that create a misdemeanor offense for failing to carry an alien registration document and require school officials to determine whether incoming children are immigrants of the children of immigrants and evaluate whether they qualify for English as a second language or other remedial language classes.
