Federal Judge Knocks Some Sense Into Arizona!

Unless the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco rules otherwise, Arizona won’t be another version of Nazi Germany anytime soon. A federal judge threw out the most stringent parts of the new law that took effect on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton struck down parts of the law she deemed to undermine federal authority, while other aspects of the legislation, including the requirement that Arizona police check the papers of those they suspect to be illegal immigrants, would have inadvertently “swept up” legal immigrants.

But not to be undaunted, Arizona’s Republican governor Jan Brewer made an appeal of the judge’s ruling. The case will most likely go to the US Supreme Court, where, in all likelihood, the law will be ruled “unconstitutional”. It will cost the taxpayers of Arizona millions upon millions of wasted dollars, dollars that could have gone to better use.

It’s amazing that so many people have no problem letting the police infringe on their rights…just so long as it’s not them!
