‘Racist’ Bill Blocked: Arizona immigration law takes a hit

District Judge Susan Bolton has issued an injunction blocking key parts of Arizona’s SB 1070 from going into effect tomorrow, amid a mass exodus of Latinos from the state.

The judge temporarily blocked implementation of laws allowing police to stop anyone they had “reasonable suspicion” to believe was in the country illegally, and requiring immigrants to carry federal documentation at all times. She also blocked the officers from being able to make warrantless arrests of those they suspect to be in the country illegally. However, the overall law is still set to go into effect on July 29th, making key opponents reluctant to celebrate this apparent victory.

“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.”
