Judge Issues Injunction Blocking Key Portions of AZ Immigration Law – Breaking and Updated

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton has issued an injunction blocking key portions of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, including the provision that allowed police to ask about immigration status based on reasonable suspicion a person may be illegal.  Updated: The 36-page opinion is here.

The Court struck also struck down the provisions that  required  aliens to carry papers and that made being in the country illegally a state trespass violation.    The court also invalidated the section of the law that made it a crime for illegal aliens to seek work.

By taking the additional step of issuing an injunction to block the provisions she ruled illegal, the court prevented those provisions from taking effect at midnight tonight.  They will remain invalid unless and until the federal district court ruling is overturned by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal.

I don’t like to rely on non-legal media for legal stories,  so I won’t delve into the reasoning of the opinion now.  I will have more as the news comes out, and will link to the opinion and the best of the legal blogs when I do.
