Injunction sought for immigration law

Tulsa_Attorneys are asking a federal judge to put a hold on a new law cracking down on illegal immigration in Oklahoma.

The law is to go into effect Thursday but opponents want it delayed while a lawsuit challenges it in court.  One federal lawsuit challenging the law was dismissed last week when a judge said there was no proof anyone had been damaged by it.

The lawsuit was refiled to include eight undocumented residents who plan to testify that they will face eviction from their landlords unless they provide legal identification.  The law limits access to public benefits for undocumented immigrants and makes it a felony to provide shelter or transportation to illegal immigrants.
