Indiana AG won't appeal immigration ruling

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says he won't appeal a federal judge's decision to temporarily block part of a new state immigration law but will continue to fight against a ruling that would make the ban permanent.

Zoeller said Tuesday that his office decided not to fight U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker's June 24 ruling for "strategic reasons" but would continue to defend the law in court.

Barker ruled that parts of the law allowing police to arrest immigrants who hadn't committed a crime and restricting the use of identification provided by foreign consulates treaded on the federal government's power to regulate immigration.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana and the National Immigration Law Center challenged the law and are seeking to block it permanently.

  • Oh Well !
    If your husband didn't disrespect and break our immigration laws, he wouldn't have been deported. Sorry but hard to find sympathy! Don't marry criminals, all they bring is pain!
  • RE: no appeal
    Unfortunately for many Mexicans, Hispanics, and illegal aliens, they don't think that they are going to be deported, thus they don't play the "immigration game" aggressively. They let time pass and they don't fill out the paperwork that, under perfect circumstances, will make them legal in less than one year. They unfortunately get caught for committing a misdemeanor or petty crime, and are referred to ICE. I believe that you will have to go live with you husband in his country of origin for no less than ten years (depending on the crime that got him referred to ICE in the first place) and after that, you will be able to file the paperwork and hopefully he becomes legal. Good luck with your situation.

    1. Angela IS the best RD

    2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
