Alabama’s Immigration Law approved

September 29, 2011


On September 28, 2011 Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn upheld most parts of Alabama’s new immigration law which was supposed to take effect on September 1; but instead, was temporally blocked in order to decide whether the law – opposed by the Obama administration, church leaders and immigrant rights groups – was constitutional.

Alabama’s new immigration law is by far the strictest law of the country. “Today Judge Blackburn upheld the majority of our law,” Gov. Robert Bentley said in a brief statement he delivered outside the State Capitol in Montgomery. “With those parts that were upheld, we have the strongest immigration law in the country.”

With this law now approved authorities can now question people suspected of being in the country illegally and hold them without bond, and officials can check the immigration status of students in public universities and schools.

Among other parts upheld by Judge Sharon Blackburn there are:

  • 1.- One that nullifies any contracts entered into by an illegal immigrant.
  • 2.- Another that forbids any transaction between an illegal immigrant and any division of the state.This proscription has already led to the denial of a Montgomery man’s application for water and sewage service.
  • 3.- A section that requires elementary and secondary schools to determine the immigration status of incoming students.


The Alabama law was the latest, and broadest, of the state laws against illegal immigration, going further than one passed in Arizona.

While Alabama is estimated to have a relatively small population of people who are in the country illegally, the numbers have been growing.
