US judge blocks Florida law that bars transporting migrants into state

A Trump-appointed U.S. judge temporarily blocked part of a Florida law on Wednesday that imposes criminal penalties for willfully transporting people who lack legal immigration status into the state. U.S. District Judge Roy Altman blocked the bill. In his decision, he agreed with prosecutors that the law was probably preempted by federal immigration laws and rejected claims that the injunction would harm efforts to identify drug-traffickers. The move temporarily suspends that part of the law while the lawsuit unfolds in federal court.
