    OK: Judge blocks some parts of HB 1804

    Judge blocks some parts of HB 1804
    By Jay F. Marks
    Staff Writer

    A federal judge today blocked enforcement of employer-related provisions of the state's controversial immigration law, ruling it likely interferes with federal regulations regarding the hiring of unauthorized workers.

    Several business groups challenged House Bill 1804 — which has been called the toughest immigration statute in the nation — in federal court in Oklahoma City.

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, The State Chamber, the Oklahoma City and Tulsa chambers of commerce, and the Oklahoma restaurant and hotel and lodging associations contend the law places unreasonable burdens on businesses, according to the lawsuit filed Feb. 1 by the National Chamber Litigation Center.

    "We applaud the court's decision to delay enforcing these portions of Oklahoma's immigration law," said Robin Conrad, the center's executive vice president. "Through harsh civil penalties, the Oklahoma law unfairly shifts the burden of immigration enforcement from government onto the backs of businesses.

    "Piecemeal state legislation is not the answer to our nation's immigration problems."

    The groups' lawsuit still is pending in federal court in Oklahoma City, even though U.S. District Judge Robin Cauthron agreed to halt enforcement of a provision of the new law that would have required companies to verify the eligibility status of all new employees.

    That provision was set to go into effect July 1.

    Attorney General Drew Edmondson issued this statement: “This is a preliminary injunction, not a final ruling. In her order, the judge writes that ‘the Court finds Plaintiffs have established a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of the case.’ We will attempt to overcome this hurdle when the matter is set for hearing on the permanent injunction.

    Judge halts parts of House Bill 1804

    A federal judge on Wednesday halted the full implementation of House Bill 1804, Oklahoma's landmark immigration law aimed at decreasing the use of illegal workers and limiting access to state services.

    Judge Robin Cauthron has granted injunctive relief in a case that has pitted the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Oklahoma chambers of commerce against the state.

    Cauthron is a judge with the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Oklahoma.

    The injunction prohibits two sections of HB 1804 from taking affect July 1. One section would require an employer to verify a worker's eligibility before he or she could be eligible for contracts with the state. A second section would require businesses to verify the work authorization status of individual independent contractors to avoid state tax penalties.

    Looks like Judge Cauthron was appointed by daddy Bush in 1991:

    This was the same problem that the United States had with the 1986 legislation. The businesses supporting the position of te US Chamber of Commerce sued and got exempted from prosecution by placing the burden of proof of an illegal hire on the U.S. government after the fact. This resulted in a drop in diligence by business and prosecucution by the government. We can not let this happen to America again.
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    "Piecemeal state legislation is not the answer to our nation's immigration problems."

    I am sure we will be hearing that phrase over and over, with the first three words changed to suit.

    I am so sick of judges who side with Busines all the time and against the people -- Immigration is NOT the responsibility of Congress. The states have a roll to play. I am sick of business wanting to hire illegals in violation of the 1986 laws

    I hope Oklahoma appeals otherwise they will never get rid of the illegals.

    This judge should be impeached.

    aiding and abetting is illegal

    Aiding and abetting a person in the commission of a crime, is already against the law, why not enforce our laws? Illegal aliens are criminals, they break multiple laws and commit felonies every day they are here illegally.
    I want to know why the U.S. refuses to enforce laws that protect CITIZENS against the invasion of disease carrying law breakers from around the world.
    Remember La Raza is getting help from politicians to make opposition to the invasion a hate crime.
    Imagine a country where it is a hate crime for wanting legitimate laws enforced!
    You don't have to imagine it you live in the U.S.A.
    Nonfeasance of office, the refusal to do that which should be done. Officials do not enforce the law, grounds for dismissal and prosecution for refusing to do what they were hired to do!
