Legal Americans with by injunction, Constitutional rights upheld …  NYT: “There is a substantial likelihood that officers will wrongfully arrest legal resident aliens,” U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton writes. “By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a ‘distinct, unusual and extraordinary’ burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal government has the authority to impose.”-

(Reuters) – A judge on Wednesday blocked key parts of Arizona’s tough new immigration law, granting the Obama administration’s request for an injunction on grounds that immigration matters are the federal government’s responsibility.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton agreed to an injunction on provisions including one that required a police officer to determine the immigration status of a person detained or arrested if the officer believes the person is not in the country legally.

The Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature passed the law in April to try to stem the flow of illegal immigrants over the state’s border with Mexico and cut down on drug trafficking and crime — setting it on a collision course with the federal government.
