South Carolina Immigration Law
Fox News -- 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.
A spokesman for Republican Gov. Nikki Haley responded to the ruling by saying the case will be decided by the Supreme Court.
"If the feds were doing their job, we wouldn't have had to address illegal immigration reform at the state level. But, until they do, we're going to keep fighting in South Carolina to be able to enforce our laws,"
Blog author's comments - Barack Obama and his administration have it figured out. All they have to do is have these judicial activists strike down any and all legislation that has a hint of conservatism.
Obama is counting on winning a second term and will attempt to give all illegals citizenship -- they will then be able to vote...for the Democrats.
On December 22, 2009, President Obama nominated U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel to serve on the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina.
