Undocumented immigrants won't be kicked out of school in Alabama just yet


Undocumented immigrants are still permitted to fill seats at this Birmingham, Alabama high school - at least for now
Provisions of a controversial immigration law in Alabama have been struck down by a federal court.
The ruling puts on hold implementation of the law until the broader constitutional issues can be resolved.
That means that undocumented immigrants can still go to school and get driver’s licenses in Alabama.
The ruling also puts on hold a provision which would authorize the state to hold illegal immigrants without bond.
