A federal judge on Monday heard arguments on a request by civil liberties groups to block Georgia's law cracking down on illegal immigration from taking effect until a legal challenge is resolved, but said he would not make an immediate ruling.
The groups have filed a lawsuit asking a judge to find the law unconstitutional and to prevent its enforcement and also filed a request that the judge block the law from taking effect until that lawsuit is resolved.
