Securing America: New Ruling on SC Immigration Law

After putting a halt to South Carolina’s Arizona-modeled immigration law, a Federal judge is removing a roadblock for part of the law to take effect.

The same Federal judge who blocked South Carolina’s immigration law nearly a year ago now says a key provision can stand, based on what the U.S. Supreme Court has done with Arizona’s law. ¬†Most of that law was thrown out, but the high court upheld the provision allowing police to check the immigration status of someone pulled over for another violation.

Opponents argue the injunction against that part of South Carolina’s law should be left in effect for now because of enforcement questions, such as how long can someone legally be detained while their immigration status is verified?
