Just a Headline at the moment. No story yet.

I’ll wait also.
Squeezing crossed finger, here!
Next, I bet Zero sends in his flying monkeys from the DOJ.
Nah! That can’t be right. We’re talking a federal judge here.
Waiting for the press conference from La Raza Rick Perry denouncing the judge as a heartless racist.
A local Huntsville city councilman (I think) got in trouble for commenting on how much the jail’s salsa bill was going to go up as a result of this law.
LOL. A buddy of mine and I were wondering how many of the Mexican Restaurants here in Montgomery were going to have to close down, and also if we would be able to get our roofs fixed after the next hail storm. ;-)
“A federal judge has refused to block key parts of Alabama’s new law on illegal immigration, including its requirement to check the immigration status of students.”
“She upheld the Obama administration’s objections to other sections of the law, including making it a crime for an illegal immigrant to solicit work or for anyone to transport or harbor an illegal immigrant.”
“U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Blackburn said the federal government had not met requirements to enjoin sections that make it a crime to not carry documentation, allow law enforcement to detain those they find to have ‘reasonable suspicion’ of being in the country illegally after stops; require schools to collect information on the immigration status of students and forbid state and local agencies from doing business with undocumented aliens.”
JUDGE - U.S. District Judge Sharon Blackburn
Requirement to check the immigration status of students, and more importantly requires police to determine the status of suspected illegal immigrants.
making it a crime for an illegal immigrant to solicit work or for anyone to transport or harbor an illegal immigrant.
Casa Grande Blanca
Finally we’re seeing some judicial decisions that benefit the American people.
Yeah, the flying monkey squad will be on the way back from Cal defending the indefensible loan guarantee to the Obama slush fund, er, Sylinda operation and from Arizona looking to buy back some weapons.
A snip from Wiki:
“On April 11, 1991, Blackburn was nominated by President George H.W. Bush to a new seat on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama created by 104 Stat. 5089. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on May 24, 1991, and received her commission on May 30, 1991. She has served as chief judge since 2006.”
Apparently, this is a "judge" who doesn't even know the laws:
8 U.S.C. § 1324 : US Code - Bringing in and harboring certain aliens
(a) Criminal penalties (1)(A) Any person who - (i) knowing that a person is an alien, brings to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien; (ii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law; (iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation; (iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or (v)(I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, . . .
Think it said she issued a hold on that section, she could actually agree in final issue.
The excerpt said that she “upheld . . . the objection” which is a block, not a hold.
If the actual ruling says a hold, not a block, I stand corrected, although the law is unabiguous in this regard, leaving me confused as to why she would issue a hold.
This needs to be in Breaking News!
It was scrolling below my show around lunch time by the local news saying they were reviewing the 115 page ruling. I thought she struck down part and held up part but haven’t watched the news this evening.
We had our roof replaced in May and they all “looked” legal to me . . . the company even has them wear matching color t-shirts each day with the company logo . . . one day blue, one day red . . . and so on. Neighbors got their roof replaced a week or so ago .. . . when I left to run errands a few times the ONE day they were working, I didn’t hear a word of English. Some people care in who they hire and contract with and some don’t.
Which one was it? I no longer subscribe to the Huntsville Times so I missed this.
Is it illegal for an employer to hire an illegal?
Hey, there are a few good ones.
Here you go for the Hsv Times article on the ruling (includes the actual summary judgement).
Actually I believe it was a Madison County Commissioner, Dale Strong, who talked about the salsa...
The goal of the Federal Judiciary is to resolve cases and controversies in accordance with the Constitution and Rule of Law without regard to how the Court's decision benefits the American people. That's one of the problems with the Lib's: If the result is unjust or causes harm, then it must be unconstitution.
» Can't prosecute those who assist unauthorized aliens. She blocked a large section that would make it against the law to conceal, harbor, transport or encourage an illegal alien to stay in Alabama. This includes portions of the law referring to landlords.
» Can't stop businesses from deducting the wages they pay to unauthorized aliens from their state taxes.
» Can't create a new protected class of workers. The new law would have allowed workers who were fired or not hired in favor of unauthorized aliens to sue employers for discrimination.
I don't agree with any of this ;(
What's the DOJ doing going all around the country spending OUR tax dollars explaining to judges why they shouldn't have to enforce immigration laws essentially.
Why can illegal aliens legally seek work in this country when their whole line of reasoning is that the got into this country by breaking at least 1 law, immigration, and probably many more. The govt is subsidising crime.
If people are being damaged by the presence of illegals stealing AMERICAN jobs, then the workers should damn well have the right to sue the employer, state and federal governments for that illegal being present and stealing an American job. It's racist not to allow the legal worker to sue.
OUr frickin tax dollars at work ;(
Yes, that part was left alone - employers face fines and closure for employing illegals. Basically the judge said that they can look for work, but you can't hire them BUT you can deduct their wages from your taxes if you do hire them. In other words, complete and utter contradiction.
And to clear up a question up thread -
The ruling did not SHOOT DOWN any part of the law. What ths ruling does is lift the STAY on the main parts of the law, allowing them to go into effect immediately, and blocked other parts from going into effect until after a full trial.
Not enough though. Especially on the Supreme Court.
Good enough reason to throw Obummer out, and elect a 60 vote majority in the Senate.
