U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Blackburn issued a 115 page order today addressing Alabama's Immigration Law. The Order upholds most of the Immigration Law, including the E-Verify portions of the law. Her order prohibits the State from:
1. Making it illegal for an unauthorized alien to seek work as an employee or independent contractor.
2. Arresting and charging people with assisting unauthorized aliens, including blocking the provision that makes it illegal to conceal, harbor, transport or encourage an illegal alien to stay in Alabama.
3. Arresting and charging landlords who rent to unauthorized aliens.
4. Prohibiting businesses to take a deduction for wages paid to unauthorized aliens.
An article, including the 115 page opinion, can be found at Al.com.
I will continue to post more information as I review the opinion.
