Arizona going to Supreme Court on immigration enforcement law

PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer wants the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that put the most controversial parts of the state’s immigration enforcement law on hold.

The appeal comes after Brewer lost an initial appeal April 11, when a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reverse a lower court’s order that prevented key parts of the law from being enforced.

The U.S. Justice Department filed a lawsuit in a bid to invalidate the law.

Brewer’s lawyers have argued the federal government hasn’t effectively enforced immigration law and that the state’s intent in passing the law was to assist federal authorities.

The U.S. Justice Department has argued the law intrudes on its exclusive authority to regulate immigration and burdens legal immigrants.

One comment

  1. THE U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAYS IT HAS EXCLUSIVE AUTHORITY TO REGULATE IMMIGRATION AND IT BURDENS LEGAL IMMIGRATION (IMMIGRANTS, SORRY ) IMMIGRANTS. I THINK I AM MISUNDERSTANDING SOMETHING OR THIS REPORT IS FLAWED. DOES THE JUSTICE DEPT. HAVE \LEGAL IMMIGRANTS\?? WHERE ARE THEY AT? THE ARIZONA BILL IS TO GO AFTER \ILLEGAL ALIENS\ NOT LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. THE \LEGAL IMMIGRANTS\ I DON’T THINK MIND IF THEY ARE ASKED FOR ID. IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU OBJECT TO THE STANDINGS, YOU GET IT SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT ANYWAY.
