Judge blocks parts of Arizona immigration law

By JACQUES BILLEAUD and AMANDA LEE MYERS, Associated Press Writers Jacques Billeaud And Amanda Lee Myers, Associated Press Writers – 27 mins ago

PHOENIX – A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law from taking effect, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown.

The overall law will still take effect Thursday, but without the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.

The judge also put on hold parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places. In addition, the judge blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.

"Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully-present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked," U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled.

She ruled that the controversial sections should be put on hold until the courts resolve the issues. Other provisions of the law, many of them procedural and slight revisions to existing Arizona immigration statute, will go into effect at 12:01 a.m.

The ruling came just as police were making last-minute preparations to begin enforcement of the law and protesters were planning large demonstrations to speak out against the measure. At least one group planned to block access to federal offices, daring officers to ask them about their immigration status.

The volume of the protests will likely be turned down a few notches because of the ruling by Bolton, a Clinton appointee who suddenly became a crucial figure in the immigration debate when she was assigned the seven lawsuits filed against the Arizona law.

Lawyers for the state contend the law was a constitutionally sound attempt by Arizona — the busiest illegal gateway into the country — to assist federal immigration agents and lessen border woes such as the heavy costs for educating, jailing and providing health care for illegal immigrants.

Opponents argued the law will lead to racial profiling, conflict with federal immigration law and distract local police from fighting more serious crimes. The U.S. Justice Department, civil rights groups and a Phoenix police officer had asked the judge for an injunction to prevent the law from being enforced.

"There is a substantial likelihood that officers will wrongfully arrest legal resident aliens under the new (law)," Bolton ruled. "By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a 'distinct, unusual and extraordinary' burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal government has the authority to impose."

The law was signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in April and immediately revived the national debate on immigration, making it a hot-button issue in the midterm elections.

The law has inspired rallies in Arizona and elsewhere by advocates on both sides of the immigration debate. Some opponents have advocated a tourism boycott of Arizona.

It also led an unknown number of illegal immigrants to leave Arizona for other American states or their home countries.

Federal authorities who are trying to overturn the law have argued that letting the Arizona law stand would create a patchwork of immigration laws nationwide that would needlessly complicate the foreign relations of the United States. Federal lawyers said the law is disrupting U.S. relations with Mexico and other countries and would burden the agency that responds to immigration-status inquiries.

Brewer's lawyers said Arizona shouldn't have to suffer from America's broken immigration system when it has 15,000 police officers who can arrest illegal immigrants.

So sorry Sam

If I was Brewer I would have arrested everyone demonstrating unless they could prove citizenship. I am required to on almost every project I manage at Camp Lejeune and other Federal projects. Oh, wait, I am mid 40's, white, conservative, gun owning... It is ok to harrass us. Screw these people. They all suck and should be run out on a rail!! Shoot on site if they come back.

This was expected

Federal courts don't generally look with favor on conservatives.

About "racial profiling" - people from Central and South America don't usually look like Caucasians from the upper midwest. In a crowd of people with mixed backgrounds and ethnicities, it is generally quite obvious as to who is from "south of the border". These are the people among whom it might reasonably be supposed would be the illegal aliens.

Can one ever avoid racial profiling in such cases?

This doesn't excuse ignorant, bigoted statements that start, "All Mexicans are ...", "All Blacks are ...", etc., etc., nor should they ever be excused.

Polls are clear on this one, the independents are sympathetic to 1070, so the Dems are at odds with the most important voting block.. Guessing thier going to rally thier base "man we beat back those nasty people who profile" ...sheesh.. But honestly don't think we have to worry about them gloating over it..

Prob is that this will now go to the 9th for court revue.. and that group is not likely to overturn the decision. The supreme court might, but no way they could even hear the case till next year..

Ok.. Here's the deal.. Obama has just said ..."ah.. you can't actually enforce the law of the land if we decide we don't want you to"..

Oh yeah and i forgot a couple of things.. a lot of those heading south are scared to death that they will be picked up by mexican police.. Guatemalans in particular.. don't know what the issue with Mex/Guat relations is, but we do know that the Mexicans who fought this so hard against this bill, have MUCH stronger laws on thier books, (THAT THEY INFORCE)..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

my 2 cents

"Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully-present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked," U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled.

Ok if they have their papers with them it will take 30 seconds to determine if they are here legally. When I went to Brazil I had to have my papers with me and couldn't get a hotel room or even get onto a bus without showing my papers. Why is doing the same thing here such a bad thing? Even if all citizens were required to carry proof of citizenship with them, I think it would be a good thing and I'd carry mine proudly.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

what a crock of shit

okay then the state should only recognize a driver license as a means of identification,and only allow drivers license to be issued to people that can prove their immigration status,then make falsifying documents a felony with deportation a certainty.Am i saying anything new here? i don't think so,enforce the laws on the books,time to vote these fucks out.I wouldn't even think of going to another country without my passport,these fucktards really piss me off.

has brought to the attention of the entire
population nationwide that there is a real
problem here and I think every politician
will be on their toes about what they say
about this.
After all their jobs may be on the line over
this also. I know there is a lot of talk around
here about it and we are the voters

How Lame is this Bitch?? She knows this could be tied up for years, letting the breaders flood the boarders, bringing, colera, psiffless( It starts with a "P")
Lice, Tuberkulosis, and the Mexican flue,Itch, and other crotch rotting shit accross the boarder, so that they can sit next to your kids in schools all accross Our America!
When your Kid comes home with some raw flesh eating rash with puss draning out of it, and the doctor says I have no clue as to what little Juan gave to your little Susie, but her hair is full of LICE. Did she give it to little JUAN??? You Bad Bitch!!!
So, you use your Insurance to cover your Daughter!! You pay for it out of your own pocket, cause you have worked your ass off providing for your family!!! And THEN YOU ALSO PAY for this imbread, underarm, Jaurez, illeagle, rabbie bitten, whoisyerdaddy? wetback school class mate, Emergency room expense,(NONE) no out of pocket payment illeagle, breader, anchorbaby, undocumented worker, get your ssi check here!!

After thinkin about this some more I'm wondering about stratagy. We're constantly facing what I can only describe as underhanded backdoor lawmaking that threatens our gun ownership rights. Why can't we use the same approach with illegal immigrants? A sweeping law that decrees deportation of all illegal aliens will never fly. So instead we pass an "illegal alien registration act" so we have a list of all illegals and where they are at. Next we pass a series of small regulatory laws all slowly progressing towards the ultimate goal of quelling this plague which is bankrupting us and before you know it the men black SUV's and trenchcoats are comming to a town near you to round up all the illegals and take them back to their home country or countries.
