Immigration Crackdown: Alabama immigration law blocked by federal judge "A federal judge has blocked Alabama's immigration law for up to 30 days, saying more time is needed to consider various challenges to the statute.

U.S. District Judge Sharon Blackburn this afternoon blocked the entire law from taking effect for a maximum of 30 days. Most of the statute's provisions were scheduled to become law on Thursday.

"In entering this motion the court specifically notes it is in no way addressing the merits of the motions," Blackburn wrote. ... The judge said in her order said she would rule on the specific requests for preliminary injunction by September 28. A preliminary injunction would stop some or all of the law from going into effect, but would not overturn it."
