Court blocks Alabama student citizenship checks

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A federal appeals court has ruled that part of Alabama’s tough immigration law that ordered public schools to check the citizenship status of new students is unconstitutional.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that the provision wrongly singles out children who are in the country illegally.

Alabama was the only state that passed such a requirement. The 11th Circuit says a lower court should have blocked that part of the law.

The court separately says Alabama police can continue checking immigration documents for people they stop.

Both private groups and the Obama administration filed lawsuits to block the law considered the toughest in the country.

The 11th Circuit was the first appeals court to consider the schools provision.

  1. VOTE IN THE TEA PARTY AND STOP THE FINANCIAL CRIPPLING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION INVASION

    Seriously though, are we as Americans expected forever to keep subsidizing pregnant females with 400.000 unborn babies smuggled annually, with hordes of indigent people who slip past borders or the other 40 percent who fly into America never to return home? It is so easy for the both parties to remain unconcerned or staying deliberately ignorant about this silent invasion. Do we as Americans have to further forfeit our lifestyles, as we continually pay a annual bloated taxes to pay for every destitute foreigners who finds their way here? These are unfunded state mandates that keep on growing in hundreds of billions of dollars. Whether its Governor Brewer in Arizona or another state politician elsewhere, this drain on state treasuries must stop?

    Turn the tide of an unceasing Socialist experiment played by the Democrats and Liberals, with an incredulous plan that Obama is sure to enact if has a new coronation next year. The Tea Party no longer has the luxury of merely trying to win, it is now “do or die” for our nation. The struggle is between a socialist schedule and the endurance of the Free-Enterprise Republic. Decide now to join us in our fight…or be predestined to live in a country that is shackled by socialism. I’m afraid under Obama’s agenda there is no middle ground. To be perfectly clear, if the Tea Party falters now…if we lay back or slack off then America we know will be gone forever. The TEA PARTY will let free trade succeed, but will sanction countries as China who are manipulating their coinage and cheating us. We cannot trust the Democrats who remain deliberately unconcerned with non-citizens voting. Both parties refuse to enact mandatory E-Verify (H.R. 2885), to expel illegal aliens from businesses, and a Birthright Citizenship law (H.R. 140), that allows a projected 400.000 babies a year who gain citizenship, without a parent holding U.S. citizenship status.

    With an unmatched nationwide recession, the Democrats and Republicans have done nothing to reduce the 16 trillion deficits, that this country is now being financially asphyxiated. Join the TEA PARTY and we can win this battle against this Socialist regime and bring America out of this terrible recession. VOTE for MITT ROMNEY as the constitutional TEA PARTY is overhauling the Republican Party and starting to gain a upper hand against the Liberal indoctrination.
