Feds File Emergency Motion for Injunction of Alabama Immigration Law

The United States government filed an emergency motion with the 11th Circuit on October 7, 2011 asking the court to enjoin portions of Alabama's controversial new immigration law while the issue is on appeal. The Department of Justice argued in its motion that the state law encroaches on an area of the law under the exclusive control of the federal government. The district court in the case had previously denied the DoJ's multiple requests for injunctions.
