Ala. immigration law rehearing rejected

Oct. 18, 2012 at 2:44 PM

ATLANTA, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected Alabama's request to rehear the invalidation of parts of the state's immigration law.

In August the court invalidated several sections of the law, including provisions that made contracts with illegal immigrants unenforceable and made it a crime to "harbor, conceal or shield" undocumented immigrants from law enforcement, the Montgomery Advertiser reported Thursday.

The ruling by the three-judge panel Wednesday indicates those provisions remain invalid, but it remains unclear if the court is considering the state's challenge of a separate ruling blocking Alabama's effort to collect immigration data on new public school students, the Alabama Media Group's website al.com said.
