Judge Who Blocked Florida’s Immigration Law This Week Has Change Of Heart

A federal judge in Florida on Thursday reversed his own ruling that temporarily blocked a key part of Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’s immigration plan.

U.S. District Judge Roy Altman issued an injunction on Wednesday that blocked a part of the immigration plan that made it a felony to transport illegal immigrants into the state. On Wednesday he clarified that the injunction was statewide, but on Thursday he said he would hold a briefing on the injunction, per The Hill.

Altman instructed both parties in the lawsuit to submit a brief by June 6 on whether the injunction should just apply to plaintiffs, or be a district- or statewide injunction.
