Judge Blocks Parts Of Georgia Immigration Law

ATLANTA — A federal judge on Monday blocked parts of Georgia’s law cracking down on illegal immigration from taking effect until a legal challenge is resolved.

Judge Thomas Thrash granted a request to block parts of the law that penalize people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime. He also blocked provisions that authorize officers to verify the immigration status of someone who can’t provide proper identification.

Thrash wrote that under parts of the law, the state is enforcing immigration law that should be left to the federal government. Thrash also dismissed parts of the lawsuit at the state’s request.
