It's a law that's drawn the ire of those in private and government circles. Now, a Federal court has blocked Alabama schools from checking on the citizenship of new students.
FOX News Radio's Lisa Lacerra has details:
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, ruling that checking citizenship of new students wrongly singles out children who are in the country illegally. The appeals court, saying a lower court should have blocked that part of Alabama's tough new immigration law.
Separately, the court says Alabama police can continue checking immigration documents for people they stop. Private groups and the Obama Administration filed lawsuits to block the immigration law, considered the toughest in the country.
