The Justice Department may again sue Alabama over its immigration reform.

The Department of Justice sued Alabama earlier this year for its controversial immigration law; now, as parts of the law take effect, the Department has launched a discrimination investigation against the State.

According to The Washington Post, part of the investigation has Justice Department officials seeking detailed enrollment information from Alabama schools, after reports that several Hispanic families withdrew their children from public schools as a result of the legislation.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange has denied the requests and questioned the Federal government’s authority to access such information, and school districts throughout the State have been ordered not to comply. The Justice Department will likely file another lawsuit against the State in light of the controversy over student attendance records.

Strange said that Federal authorities are required by law to hand any complaints that they have received about the law over to the State so that Alabama officials can take action.
