A federal court has issued a temporary injunction to delay implementation of Alabama's immigration law which was set to go into effect on September 1. The lawsuit brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, religious leaders, and other plaintiffs challenges the constitutionally of the law and seeks a preliminary injunction that would stop the law from being enforced until the constitutionality of the law is decided. Judge Blackburn in this case has ordered a delay of 30 days to allow her time to consider the preliminary injunction request. If the judge grants the request, Alabama officials may not enforce the law until the a final decision on its legality is made.
