District Court Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn's split decision on Alabama's tough immigration law. Blackburn is ruling on her interpretation of law: not what she or anybody else might believe is right or wrong.
The Department of Justice argued that immigration law enforcement rested with the federal government and a state couldn't set up its own system. But in a departure from other federal rulings, Blackburn disagreed, arguing that enforcement provisions in the state law were complementary to the federal law.
One of the complaints from sheriff's offices and city police officials is that this amounts to an unfunded mandate from the state. Law enforcement officers will need special training, people detained will have to be kept in city and county jails, and those are going to cost more money at a time policing agencies are often seeing their budgets cut.
Whether her reading of the law is correct is yet undetermined. The groups opposing the immigration law and those that support it (Gov. Robert Bentley and Attorney General Luther Strange) said they will appeal. Supreme Court. Circuit Court of Appeals. The law's long legal journey is just beginning, but for now, the sections affirmed by Blackburn are state law and in force.

Still, for now, Alabama does, indeed, have the nation's toughest immigration law, as some lawmakers and Bentley brag about. We still believe much of the immigration law, even many of the parts affirmed by Blackburn, is mean spirited and overreaching. Lawmakers should repeal it and start over with a more reasonable law.
A part of the law Blackburn upheld requires state and local law enforcement officers to try to verify a person's immigration status after a traffic stop or when a person is arrested, if the officer has "a reasonable suspicion" the person is in the country illegally. Blackburn also ruled that a section of the law Puma Shoes For Women Running
which criminalizes "willful failure" by an illegal alien to carry federal immigration papers did not pre empt federal law. Similar provisions in the Arizona immigration law were thrown out by another federal court.
makes sense to require employers to make sure their workers are legally able to work in the United States. Focusing on the companies that hire illegal immigrants would naturally be one of the best strategies for cutting the illegal immigrant labor pool.
Much of Alabama's immigration law is upheldout how to begin enforcement.
However, a provision in the law that prohibited businesses from deducting from state taxes the wages they pay to illegal immigrants was blocked by Blackburn.
Some of the law's other onerous provisions were blocked by Blackburn, including a section that made it a crime to conceal, harbor, transport or rent to an illegal immigrant.
A provision requiring every employer in the state to enroll in E Puma Cheap Shoes Verify to check the citizenship status of all employees was upheld, and it should have been. It Puma Match Shoes
Blackburn also said the Alabama law can require public schools to check the citizenship status of enrolling students, putting yet another administrative burden on schools.
