Justice Department Attacks Another Immigration Law

Justice Department Attacks Another Immigration Law

The Administration of Barack Obama has added South Carolina to the list of States being sued by the Justice Department for immigration reform laws.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced the decision to target the State in a Monday press release.

“Today’s lawsuit makes clear once again that the Justice Department will not hesitate to challenge a state’s immigration law, as we have in Arizona, Alabama and South Carolina, if we find that the law interferes with the federal government’s enforcement of immigration,” read a statement from Holder.

South Carolina officials said that if the Federal government were doing more to handle issues regarding illegal immigration, tough State-level legislation would not be necessary.

According to the release, the Justice Department is still reviewing immigration-related laws that were passed in Utah, Indiana and Georgia. Courts have blocked parts of the Arizona, Alabama, Georgia and Indiana State laws and temporarily restrained enforcement of Utah’s law.

The South Carolina reform required police officers to summon Federal immigration authorities if they suspect an arrested person is an illegal alien. The law also makes it a felony for people to use false identification documents for illegal immigrants, and for people to transport illegal immigrants.
