On June 2, 2011, Plaintiffs filed a class action against the Governor of Georgia and other state officials under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1981 and 1983 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division. Plaintiffs are nonprofit organizations, business associations, and individuals. Plaintiffs challenged Georgia's comprehensive immigration law, House Bill 87 ("HB87"). The organizational Plaintiffs claimed that HB87 would cause them to divert resources from their traditional missions in order to educate the public on the effects of the new law. The individual Plaintiffs claimed that they would be subject to investigation, detention, and arrest under HB87 because of their status as, or association with, unauthorized aliens. In their complaint, Plaintiffs argued that HB87 violates the Supremacy Clause, the Fourth Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the constitutional right to travel. Plaintiffs asked the court for both declaratory and injunctive relief.

On June 8, 2011, the Plaintiffs filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction. Plaintiffs sought to enjoin the enforcement of portions of HB87 that would go into effect on July 1, 2011. On June 14, 2011, Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss. Defendants contended that the Plaintiffs lacked standing and that the District Court lacked jurisdiction over Plaintiffs' claims. The Court held a hearing on the motions on June 20, 2011. On June 27, 2011, the District Court (Judge Thomas W. Thrash, Jr.) issued an order granting Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary Injunction against Sections 7 and 8 of the law, and granting in part and denying in part Defendants' Motion to Dismiss. Ga. Latino Alliance for Human Rights v. Deal, 793 F. Supp. 2d 1317 (N.D. Ga. 2011).

Section 7 of the law created three distinct state criminal violations: (1) transporting or moving an illegal alien, O.C.G.A. § 16-11-200(b); (2) concealing or harboring an illegal alien, id. § 16-11-201(b); and (3) inducing an illegal alien to enter the state of Georgia, id. § 16-11-202(b). The District Court found these provisions preempted by the criminal provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, particularly 8 U.S.C. § 1324. Section 8 authorized police officers to investigate the immigration status of individuals who cannot produce adequate identification to prove citizenship, provided probable cause exists that the individual has committed a crime. O.C.G.A. § 17-5-100(b). In implementing this investigatory provision, officers were not permitted to "consider race, color, or national origin . . . except to the extent permitted by" the United States and Georgia Constitutions. Id. § 17-5-100(e). The District Court likewise enjoined this provision as preempted.

Defendants appealed the preliminary injunction to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. In December 2011, Defendants sought to stay the appeal pending the outcome of the Supreme Court's decision of Arizona v. United States, a case involving the Ninth Circuit striking down an Arizona law similar to this one. (Click here for the Clearinghouse entry on this case.) The Eleventh Circuit declined to stay proceedings.

On August 20, 2012, in an opinion by Judge Charles Wilson, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued its opinion affirming in part and reversing in part the district court's preliminary injunction. The Court held that, as a result of the Supreme Court's Arizona v. United States analysis (which had since been decided), Section 7's criminalization of various immigration-related conduct was preempted. The Court also held that Section 8's authorization of police inquiry regarding persons without proper documentation (the "papers please" provision) was not properly subject of a pre-enforcement facial challenge; rather, plaintiffs' challenge would have to focus on implementation, and was therefore premature. Ga. Latino Alliance for Human Rights v. Governor of Ga., 691 F.3d 1250 (11th Cir. 2012). The Court denied the defendants' request for rehearing en banc.

On March 20, 2013, the District Court (Judge Thrash) entered a permanent injunction, enjoining Section 7 of HB87. The same day, Defendants filed a supplemental motion to dismiss Plaintiffs' remaining claims against Section 8 of HB87, arguing that Plaintiffs' facial challenge could not move forward in light of the Arizona decision and the Eleventh Circuit's ruling in this case. In opposition, Plaintiffs argued that they needed more discovery to pursue their claims.

On July 18, 2013, the District Court (Judge Thrash) granted Defendants' motion to dismiss Plaintiffs' challenge to Section 8. The Court held that, as a result of the Arizona and Eleventh Circuit decisions, Plaintiffs' "burden to establish the facial unconstitutionality of section 8 now appears to be insurmountable." The Court further held that "[a]ny further challenges to [HB87] must take the form of as-applied challenges." In granting the motion, the Court dismissed all remaining claims in the case. Ga. Latino Alliance for Human Rights v. Deal, 958 F. Supp. 2d 1355 (N.D. Ga. 2013).
