Federal judge grants request to block parts of Georgia immigration law from taking effect - The Washington Post
As I predicted, these state laws that try to let state/local officers enforce federal law will be shot down. Slowly but surely...ATLANTA — A federal judge on Monday blocked parts of Georgia’s law cracking down on illegal immigration from taking effect until a legal challenge is resolved.
Judge Thomas Thrash granted a request to block parts of the law that penalize people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can’t provide proper identification.
Thrash wrote that under parts of the law, the state is enforcing immigration law that should be left to the federal government.
