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.
