U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker took issue with two portions of Indiana‘s new immigration law.

U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker granted a preliminary injunction blocking two portions of Indiana‘s new immigration law, which is set to take effect July 1.

Barker said two main provisions of the law are flawed: One that doesn’t allow immigrants to use ID cards issued by foreign consulates, and another that allows people whose immigration status has been questioned to be arrested on noncriminal grounds. She maintains that the law violates the constitution‘s due-process and search-and-seizure provisions.
