MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has rejected a request from the state to reconsider its latest ruling in which the court invalidated some provisions of Alabama's immigration law.
The court Wednesday rejected a request that the full court review the decision of a three-judge panel.
The court did not give a reason for denying the request.
In August, the court invalidated several parts of the state's immigration law. These included provisions that made contracts with immigrants unenforceable and that made it a crime to "harbor, conceal or shield" undocumented aliens from law enforcement. The 11th Circuit ruled the contracts provision was designed to make the lives of illegal immigrants so difficult they would be forced to leave the state.
