    US asks court to halt state immigration law

    ATLANTA (AP) — The federal government asked an appeals court on Friday to halt an Alabama immigration law considered by many as the toughest in the United States, saying it invites discrimination against foreign-born citizens and legal immigrants.

    The federal government filed the challenge to the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. It claimed Alabama's new law "is highly likely to expose persons lawfully in the United States, including school children, to new difficulties in routine dealings."

    The overhaul allows authorities to question people suspected of being in the country illegally and hold them without bond. It also lets officials check the immigration status of students in public schools.

    • You know, at some point legal citizens (foreign-born or not) and legal immigrants are going to have to put up with a little inconvenience in order to get the job done. The TRUTH in this matter is they don't want to enforce the laws and look for excuses such as possible discrimination/profiling to not do their sworn duty. I say tough what it takes to enforce our laws. Inconvenience me...I'll whip out my ID for every single transaction I do if I have to. Once we get illegals out, build a ginormous fence to keep them out, and finally stop getting financially destroyed by them, then we can see about relaxing things a bit.

      • As more proof that this is just yet again BS obstruction of justice I submit the following:

        In order to enforce underage drinking laws, we force people to show their IDs when ordering alcohol. In particular, people close to the drinking age are more likely to get carded than older people...I don't hear them crying about that discrimination. So F U, you piece of crap lying liberals. Not only do you NOT do your job, but you do everything you can to prevent others from stepping in to see justice done. You should all be in prison for abetting criminals.
