Arizona immigration law SB 1070 - judge blocks key parts

Arizona immigration law SB 1070 - judge blocks key parts 28 Jul 2010 A federal judge in Phoenix on Wednesday blocked key provisions of Arizona's controversial immigration law from taking effect as scheduled Thursday, granting in part an injunction requested by the Obama administration. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled that the injunction would apply to the portion of the state law that requires police to try to determine the immigration status of a person they arrest, stop or detain while enforcing other laws if they reasonably suspect the person is in the United States illegally. In a lawsuit filed against Arizona, the Obama administration said the law was unconstitutional and warned that the provision would result in racial profiling and harassment of U.S. citizens, legal immigrants and foreign visitors. [Barack Obama doesn't care about 'racial profiling and harassment of U.S. citizens, legal immigrants and foreign visitors.' If he did, he would close Guantanamo Bay and Bagram prisons, stop Bush's illegal domestic spying programs, sunset the Patriot Act, and stop outsourcing. Obama wants undocumented workers to provide cheap labor for his corporate overlords, which drives down the wages of US workers while taxpayers cover the social services bills for undocumented workers so businesses don't have to. --LRP]
