(Phoenix, AZ)—Arizona is now months away from enforcing its new immigration law SB 1070 – that is, if the federal government permits its enforcement at all.
Governor Jan Brewer requested that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals expedite a review of U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's decision to temporarily block five sections of SB 1070 which took effect on Thursday. Gov. Brewer is asking the court to consider “whether the district court relied on an erroneous legal premise or abused its discretion.”
