Supreme Court passes on Alabama immigration case
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review a federal appeals court ruling striking down portions of Alabama’s immigration law, one of the most restrictive in the nation. In a one-line order, the justices denied certiorari in Alabama v. U.S., the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals case that struck down parts of the state law, which sought to impose tough employment and criminal restrictions on those living in the country illegally, as preempted by the federal immigration scheme.
