Justice Department: Law and Non-Immigration Offences
justice department: U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia blocked much of the law on Aug. 31, a day before it was to take effect, according to The Chronicle Herald. The state appealed to the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Under the law, Texas police chiefs could face removal from office and criminal charges for not complying with federal immigration officials' requests to detain people jailed on non-immigration offences. Arguments on Garcia's injunction against parts of the law are scheduled for the week of Nov. 6. That request was before a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit on Friday morning. However, state officials, joined by the U.S. Justice Department, sought an emergency stay allowing enforcement to begin. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
