Judge rules on SB 1070, blocks most controversial parts of law

|

Quite literally while I was in mid-air en route to Arizona, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton in Phoenix issued a ruling on SB 1070. Some aspects of the law can go into effect, but she has issued a preliminary injunction against its more controversial sections, which empowered local officers to check individuals' immigration status while conducting other law enforcement, and required immigrants to carry documents.
