Take that, Jan Brewer.
In Phoenix, US District Court Judge Susan Bolton has issued a temporary injunction against parts of the law that would require Arizona police officers to determine the status of people they lawfully stopped and suspected were in the country illegally.
Better still, Bolton also forbade Arizona, and Wicked Witch Of the South West Brewer, from making it a state crime to not carry immigration documents, and struck down two other provisions as an unconstitutional attempt by Arizona to undermine the federal government’s efforts to enforce immigration policy.
“The court by no means disregards Arizona’s interests in controlling illegal immigration and addressing the concurrent problems with crime….[but]….it is not in the public interest for Arizona to enforce preempted laws.”
Also, not in the public interest is the fact that this racist law could have been enforced against legal immigrants in this country if a police officer simply suspected them of being here illegally, based on non-issues like clothing and shoes, and accents.
Fucktard Jan Brewer has vowed a swift appeal to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and is said to be flying over Arizona on her broomstick, writing, Surrender Immigrants, in the skies. She called the injunction a bump in the road, and by bump, I’m assuming she means the bodies of alleged illegals who will be deported if the asshats have their way.
And, for now, they don’t.
