Posted on 12/22/2011 11:42:55 AM PST by ColdOne
A federal judge on Thursday blocked three key provisions of South Carolina's controversial law cracking down on illegal immigration.
U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel granted the federal government's request for an injunction against the law that's set to take effect Jan. 1.
The ruling applies to portions that require law officers to check the status of anyone they stop for something else and suspect is in the country illegally. Gergel also halted the implementation of sections pertaining to the transportation of illegal immigrants and immigrant registration cards.
Gergel has denied the state's request that he suspend all court hearings

I can’t believe how many people repeat that mantra of ‘we can’t deport them all’.
Whats the fear? Classes empty out? The horrors.
Less wait time in the hospital? save me,save me.
More jobs available? Where will we get the people????
How abut the crooked bums in SC politics and judicial that allow this?
When o When are these governors going to grow a set and tell the Federal judge to get lost. They have no jurisdiction over a sovereign state. Only SCOTUS does. The constitution is very clear.
Sew the wind, REAP the whirlwind. sheesh
In 1994 California passed Proposition 187 to establish a state-run citizenship screening system and prohibit illegal aliens from using health care, public education, and other social services in the U.S. State of California. Voters passed the proposed law as a referendum in November 1994, citing economic concerns. Majority rules, right? Wrong.
The law was challenged in a legal suit and found unconstitutional by a federal court. In 1999, Governor Gray Davis halted state appeals against the ruling.
At that point I realized that the people no longer have a voice in how this country operates. We've been co-opted by federal bureaucrats and a judicial system that ignores the demands of the people and merrily proceeds to build its utopian welfare state. It uses any means necessary, including voter fraud, to accomplish its goals.
Many Californians here warned the same dictatorial policies were headed to other states. We were met with hoots about "land of fruits and nuts," and "we hope California falls into the ocean." Welcome to the future, FRiends.
Staes rights and state laws mean NOTHING under Obama. Constitution? What Constitution!
Anyone one else get the feeling we’re rapidly approaching the rubicon in this country?
Time to get organized.
Back when it was just accepted the House of Reps would forever be rat, he engineered and pulled off their overthrow. Similarly, it is given there is little we can do about the black-robed tyrants who usurp the Constitutional will of the sovereign people. Here is his solution to Marxist Jugdes.
I agree with you, but the snake rots from the head down. BO is letting them get away with it.
Let me understand this...a leftist, Marxist judge rules against a state law and the state must cease and desist right away. But....a Federal Judge rules that Obamacare is unconstitutional and no implementation of any kind should be allowed to move forward until the Supreme Court gives its final ruling and his order is completely ignored and billions are spent on implementation?
Exactly. Now you have it.
Sure makes Newt’s presidential win more worthy.
I’m sure the Republican field is outraged /sarc
Why? Are you looking to get married?
Impeach the bastard!
