U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has blocked major elements of Arizona’s controversial (i.e., stupid and racist) immigration law, including parts that would have allowed officers to check immigration status during unrelated stops. So, if you’re keeping score at home, it’s currently Justice: 1, Governor Jan Brewer: 0.
Here’s what Judge Susan Bolton says in her ruling:
“There is a substantial likelihood that officers will wrongfully arrest legal resident aliens under the new [law]. … 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.”
Broken hearted? Maybe you’ll like something over here instead?
