Judge Blocks AZ Law

BREAKING: A federal judge blocked Arizona’s immigration law.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton put most of Arizona’s law on hold less than a day before it was to go into effect.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has stated that the state will likely appeal the judge’s ruling seeking to overturn it.  Read the ruling here.

From Hot Air:

Federal judge Susan Bolton has issued a temporary restraining order against the most controversial portions of the Arizona immigration-enforcement law, while keeping much of it in place.  The requirement for police to check immigration status has been suspended, however, pending a full review by the court at a later date…

From Michelle Malkin:

Fox reporting that the “lion’s share” of the law will go into effect tonight.

From The Daily Caller:

“It’s a temporary bump in the road, we will move forward, and I’m sure that after consultation with our counsel we will appeal,” Brewer told the Associated Press. “The bottom line is we’ve known all along that it is The responsibility of the feds and they haven’t done their job so we were going to help them do that.”
