Much of Alabama's Immigration Statute Permanently Enjoined

"The Justice Department's lawsuit against Alabama over the state's far-reaching immigration law has been settled, with seven provisions of the law permanently blocked, a DOJ spokeswoman said this afternoon.  The settlement was signed today by U.S. District Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn.  It finalizes the agreement the state reached last month with the Justice Department and a group of plaintiffs, who also sued to block the law in the summer of 2011." - Brian Lawson, Nov. 25, 2013.
