The most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070, will not go into effect tomorrow. Judge Susan Bolton's injunction does not stop the law as a whole from being implemented. On what grounds did she temporarily strip provisions from the law that would have required police to check the immigration status of people stopped, detained or arrested? Will local law enforcement still be able to check immigration status under ICE's 287(g) program?
