Federal Judge Puts Arizona Immigration Law on Hold

|


From The Wall Street Journal:

A federal judge blocked key sections of Arizona's tough new immigration law on Wednesday, granting the Obama administration's request for an injunction based on the belief that immigration matters are the purview of the federal government.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton agreed to enjoin several provisions, including one that required police officers to check the immigration status of a person stopped for an alleged other violation, such as speeding, if reasonable suspicion existed that the individual was illegally in the U.S.
