Judge upholds major portions of Alabama’s SB1070-style law (access required)

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Blackburn blocked some portions of HB56 in her ruling on Wednesday but upheld provisions making it a crime to not carry immigration papers and requiring law enforcement officers to check people’s immigration status if they have a reasonable suspicion that they’re in the country illegally.
