Indiana's Immigration Law Challenged

Published: Dec 22, 2011 11:00 am By: GLYNIS FARRELL - Court House News

"Indiana's new immigration law, which took effect July 1, is unconstitutional, the nonprofit Union Benefica Mexicana claims in Federal Court.

The Union challenges the constitutionality of Indiana's Senate Bill 590, which created "an array of new state-law criminal and civil offenses related to immigration."

Defendant Gov. Mitch Daniels signed it on May 11 and it took effect July 1. The Union calls it "an impermissible encroachment into an area of exclusive federal authority," in violation of the 4th and 14th Amendments, the Supremacy Clause and the Contracts Clause."
