ACLU Sues To Overturn Indiana Immigration Law

May 25, 2011  | 

The ACLU of Indiana has filed a lawsuit challenging Indiana's immigration law to prevent it from going into effect July 1.

The suit was filed on behalf of three Central Indiana residents — two from Mexico and one from Nigeria — who say they would be arrested under provisions that were included in the bill signed by Daniels on May 10.

Major provisions of the bill would block in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and penalize businesses for hiring them. The law also allows state and local police to arrest subjects on a "removal order" from an immigration court, a "detainer or notice of action issued" or if they have been convicted of one or more aggravated felonies.

Laws giving law enforcement officer additional powers to enforce immigration have come in Arizona, Utah, and Georgia. A federal judge has blocked major portions of the laws passed in Arizona and Utah.
