Court Blocks Parts of Alabama's Anti-immigrant Law

Atlanta, Ga.--According to a report from CNN, a federal appeals court has blocked enforcement of parts of Alabama's controversial anti-immigrant law--HB56.

An injunction was issued today by the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta after the U.S. Justice Department  and coalition of immigrant rights groups asked that the law be put on hold until questions of constitutionality could be answered.

The parts of HB56 blocked from being enforced are:
– Section 10, requiring immigrants to carry an alien registration card;
– Section 28, allowing public school students to be questioned about their immigration status.
