Arizona Immigration Lawsuit: Court Blocks Portion of Arizona's Immigration Law

By Kevin Fayle on July 28, 2010 1:30 PM

A federal judge in Arizona blocked the most controversial portion of Arizona's new immigration law from going into effect until after the conclusion of a lawsuit by the federal government challenging the law, S.B. 1070. The judge ruled that the United States was likely to win its lawsuit concerning the portion of the law that requires police officers to check the immigration status of anyone they reasonable suspect of being in the country illegally. The judge declined to block other sections of the law, however, after determining that the United States was not likely to win its lawsuit in regards to those portions of the law.
