Judge blocks portion of Arizona law

A federal judge today blocked the most controversial parts of an Arizona anti-immigration law.

According to a report in The New York Times, Judge Susan Bolton "took aim at the parts of the law that have generated the most controversy, issuing a preliminary injunction against sections that called for officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws and that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times.

"Judge Bolton put those sections on hold while she continues to hear the larger issues in the challenges to the law."
