    Judge blocks part of controversial Arizona immigration law

    A federal judge has granted an injunction blocking enforcement of parts of a controversial immigration law in Arizona that is scheduled to go into effect Thursday.

    U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton ruled that the federal government "is likely to succeed" in its challenge of the legality of one of the most controversial sections of the Arizona law.

    That provision required police to "make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a person stopped, detained or arrested" if the officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the United States illegally. It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant laborers or knowingly transport them.

    Opponents say the law will lead to racial profiling, which is illegal.

    Supporters point out that the law prohibits racial profiling and people cannot be stopped and asked for proof of legal residence based solely on their looks.

    Its pathetic and clearly political in nature on her end. She is throwing out federal law at the same time. So much for interpreting the law.

    What kind of country are we now that police can arrest you for and illegal action, say, DUI, but then they can't do any research to find out if you're in their state illegally? Makes no sense whatsoever.

    That's probably true -- the AZ law was written to parallel federal law closely. Striking it down on those grounds certainly puts federal law at risk.

    I'm certain, thought, that this will lead to lawsuits against "sanctuary cities," which overtly circumvent federal law. Yet, never a peep about "conducting their own foreign policy" in those situations.

    What makes it political and not her reading of the law? Is everything you disagree with political?

    Nothing at all racist about wanting immigrants to come here legally.

    I said policies. You can be against this law, and also be against illegal immigration. You really think any of these cops are going to ask white folks for their immigration papers? No, they're going to pull over a Mexican guy for a DUI, and be like, "Hrmmm I wonder if this guy is illegal...he is Mexican."

    That is ILLEGAL.

    Nothing was struck down. You really should quit while you're only slightly behind.

    True. But nothing political about thinking this aprticular writing may not be legal.
