Supreme Court Rejected Alabama’s Immigration Law


Alabama has asked U.S. Supreme Court to consider the portion of the immigration law to legally harbor or transport undocumented immigrants. On April 29, 2013 the Supreme Court denied Alabama’s writ of certiorari with Justice Antonin Scalia disagreeing.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a ruling against the controversial Alabama immigration law. The lower court ruled several sections of Alabama’s law were preempted by federal
immigration law. It also ruled a provision ordering schools to check a new student’s immigration status unconstitutional.

Alabama’s immigration law is protesting and criticizing in the business world and has generated considerable debate in the court. Last year immigration opponents were rallying against state tourism.
