Federal Judge Maxine Chesney from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California has granted a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) that enjoins the implementation of the Department of Homeland Security rules on Social Security Administration “no-match” letters. The Judge said there was a serious question about whether the Bush administration’s planned crackdown on illegal workers was authorized by law. A hearing on whether a preliminary injunction will be issued is scheduled for October 1, 2007. Government Officials had planned to send the first warning letters Tuesday and mail 140,000 letters to employers by Nov. 9, 2007.
