Injunction Filed Against Arizona Law

With less than 12 hours before the controversial Arizona immigration law is scheduled to take effect, federal judge Susan Bolton has issued a preliminary injunction against the contentious provisions – including the provision requiring police officers to ask about immigration status for suspicious individuals.  Read the federal ruling here, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal, which cites the Supremacy Clause to establish the federal government’s authority over certain types of state laws – including immigration laws.  The injunction will likely remain in effect until the Supreme Court rules on the case.
