BREAKING: Federal Court Strikes Down Major Provisions of Alabama, Georgia Immigration Laws

Written by on August 20, 2012 in Immigration Law, Supreme Court with 3 Comments

In a series of decisions issued Monday afternoon, a federal appeals court in Atlanta struck down major portions of controversial immigration laws passed by Alabama and Georgia—including a provision requiring public school officials to determine the immigration status of newly enrolling students. As the first decisions to be issued following the Supreme Court’s opinion in the challenge to Arizona SB 1070, the rulings (here, here, and here) represent a critical victory for the immigrants’ rights movement and another loss for Kris Kobach and other proponents of “attrition through enforcement.”
