U.S. Appeals Court Voids 2 Parts of Ala. Immigration Law
A federal appeals court has blocked two more parts of a tough Alabama law that targets illegal immigrants.
One prohibited courts from enforcing contracts, including rental agreements, with people known to be in the country illegally, and the other banned state and local agencies from doing business with illegal immigrants, our Gannett colleagues at the Montgomery Advertiser report.
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked sections 27 and 30 of the law, known as HB 56. The court did not explain its reasoning in a two-page decision.
