"A federal judge Thursday blocked enforcement of South Carolina's Arizona-style
anti-immigration law, siding with the Obama administration's argument
that three of the law's provisions unlawfully enter the federal
government's turf. The decision from U.S. District Court Judge Richard Mark Gergel was a blow to South Carolina, which had sought to delay the case until the U.S. Supreme Court hashes out the Obama administration's challenge to Arizona's anti-immigration law." - IBT, Dec. 22, 2011.
