Supreme Court declines Ala. immigration case

The Supreme Court will not consider a case involving the harboring provision in Alabama's immigration law.

In 2011, Alabama passed an immigration enforcement law that, among other things, made it illegal to harbor people not authorized to live in the United States. The United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit upheld injunctions against the provision in August 2012, saying it infringed on federal law, according to Reuters.

The harboring provision was criticized by the Catholic church as well as other major churches in Alabama.
