Immigration policy confused for lawim

South Carolina is latest state to be attacked by the Obama administration for passing a law aimed at stemming the tide of illegal immigrants, and an advocate for immigration reform is disappointed that a federal judge has given in to the president’s political priorities.

A federal judge recently threw out three provisions of South Carolina’s immigration statute, including one that gives law enforcement officers the right to act when they have reasonable suspicion that an individual is in the country illegally. The other provisions made it unlawful to harbor illegals and required that non-citizens carry their immigration documents with them at all times.

According to Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), this is just the latest in a series of lawsuits filed against states for passing such legislation. He believes the judge completely bought into the Obama administration’s policy of selective enforcement.(Immigration policy confused for law)
