OBAMA APPEALS ALABAMA IMMIGRATION LAW
The Obama administration on Friday asked a federal appeals court to block Alabama’s strict new anti-illegal immigration law just days after a federal judge allowed key portions to take effect. The ruling is now on hold pending Obama’s appeal. The administration argued that the U.S. Constitution made immigration a federal matter that “cannot be subject to a patchwork of state measures. Alabama thus has no authority to regulate in the area of immigration.”
Among other provisions, U.S. District Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn upheld those permitting the state to require public schools to determine the legal residency of children in order to track costs and police to detain individuals suspected of being in the country illegally if the proper documentation cannot be produced.
CONVICTED RAPIST DEPORTED THREE TIMES DISCOVERED BACK IN U.S.
Last month, police making a routine traffic stop in Escondido, CA, discovered that the 29-year-old passenger was Jesus Armando Flores-Trujillo – a convicted rapist who has been deported three times. Flores-Trujillo was first convicted of rape back in 2001 and was deported back to Mexico after finishing his sentence in 2010.
Despite his felony status (and long criminal history in our country which includes various drug charges) and the fact that he is an illegal immigrant, Flores-Trujillo was working in the Escondido area at the time of his arrest. The driver of the vehicle was also determined to be in the country illegally and was wanted on a DUI warrant. Both the driver and Flores-Trujillo are being held on Immigration and
