A federal judge has granted an injunction blocking enforcement of parts of a controversial immigration law in Arizona that is scheduled to go into effect Thursday.
So is a 21st Century Fort Sumter coming down the pike?
UPDATE: I took a quick read-through of the decision to find out the specific parts of the law which are blocked.
The judge’s ruling preliminarily enjoins Arizona from enforcing four provisions of the law:
A.R.S. § 11-1051(B) – Law enforcement determining immigration status of persons stopped, detained, or under arrest;
A.R.S. § 13-1509- “creating a crime for the failure to apply for or carry alien registration papers”;
A.R.S. § 13-2928(C)- “creating a crime for an unauthorized alien to solicit, apply for, or perform work”;
A.R.S. § 13-3883(A)(5) “authorizing the warrantless arrest of a person where there is probable cause to believe the person has committed a public offense that makes the person removable from the United States”.
