Federal Judge Blocks Part of Arizona Immigration Law

arizona-flagEditor’s Note – For those who are keeping score in the battle for freedom and personal liberty in America, we can count as opponents the federal government, the Democrat Party, the labor unions, the media, the entertainment industry and now the federal courts.

As a Constitutional Republic, America was intended to be a nation of laws, not men.  In today’s society, laws are just an inconvenient obstacle for those seeking to ‘transform America’. 

Reminds me of a line from one of my favorite movies, Wyatt Earp, where Wyatt is riding out after the men who killed his brother.  The editor of the town newspaper tries to talk Wyatt out of this action, to which Wyatt replies, “if these men think they can hide behind our laws, they’ve missed their guess.”


Federal Judge Blocks Part of Arizona Immigration Law


A federal judge on Wednesday granted a partial injunction requested by the federal government on the controversial Arizona immigration law, SB 1070. 

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has blocked the portion of the law that requires police officers to determine the immigration status of a person detained or arrested. 

She also struck down the section of law that makes it a crime if someone fails to carry immigration registration papers and the provision that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to seek or perform work.

In all, Bolton struck down four sections of the law, the ones that opponents called the most controversial parts. Bolton said she was putting those sections on hold until the courts resolve the issues.

Opponents say the law will lead to racial profiling and is trumped by federal immigration law.
