Court rules against Arizona immigration law Photo 1:09pm EDT
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court upheld a preliminary injunction against parts of Arizona's controversial immigration law in a ruling released on Monday.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a lower court did not abuse its authority by enjoining key sections of the state law that were challenged by the Obama administration.

Nice & quick. Good.
The 9th Circus Court of Appeals, supporting anti-Americanism for over 20 years...
Never saw that one coming!!!!!!!!!!, LOL
The most widely overturned court in the land.
God forbid we should ENFORCE the law.
The 9th sets itself up yet again for a smack down from the Supreme court. They never learn.
What do you expect from the 9th?
It is very interesting that the Pretender Executive and his lapdog Holder are on the side of the suit that prohibits AZ from enforcing a Federal Law that his Pretendess doesnt want enforced. Its the same side as Mexico which filed as a “amigo de la court”. He is avoiding performing his sworn duty...(I forgot Muslims can lie if they have to )
Obama is on the side of the illegal immigrant and putting US citizens at risk every day!
Why is this asshat Obama still strutting around the golf courses?
Actually, from what I've heard from my lawyer brother, on this issue the 9th Circus has typically been fairly sympathetic to the general sense of the Arizona law, so this is probably a real blow to its prospects.
That law was never going to survive the court challenges anyway, though. For as much as the Federal Gov't has failed in its duty with regard to illegal immigration, their arguments from the Supremacy Clause and the Constitutionally-mandated federal jurisdiction over immigration are valid and compelling.
It's probably much more effective to do as some states are moving to do ... and to bring suit against the FedGov to actually deal with the problem on the basis that their failure to do so is imposing large costs on the several states.
Why do we need court challenges? This is the peoples business; not the courts.
“Good Ideas are Unconstitutional!”
Because that's the way the system is set up in Article III, Section 2 of the United States Constitution.
Yes no suprises here. 9th circuit just doing business as usual. Get thee to the SCOTUS.
I’m shocked, I tell you! Shocked!...oh wait, it’s the 9th circuit...never mind.
I found those arguments neither valid nor compelling. The Federal Government has already passed laws requiring local law enforcement to cooperate with the Feds in enforcing immigration laws much like the Arizona law requires. States like New York that do not cooperate are actually in violation of Federal Law. That Bozo and his AG don't prosecute does not make the law invalid.
The Federal Government has already passed laws requiring local law enforcement to cooperate with the Feds in enforcing immigration laws much like the Arizona law requires.
It doesn't work both ways, though ... and that's the essence of the decision.
We agree that the Feds have failed to properly deal with illegal immigration. The question is how best to address that fact.
Arizona's approach was never going to pass muster in the courts.
Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government
that requires all citizens to prove
they are insured but not all
must prove they are citizens.
