Feds Sue AZ, SB1070 Stopped
The Justice Department is scheduled to file suit in federal court over AZ's SB1070 "Show Me Your Papers" law later today. The suit has been expected for some time. Implementation of SB1070 will also likely be prevented as the case meanders it's way through the legal system. Look for this misguided and ineffective law to finally show up at the Supreme Court in a few years, where legal observers predict it will be promptly tossed.
Please return to your tea parties, minutemen gathering, or John Birch Society meetings, nothing more to see here.
UPDATE: AZ. Congressman Raul Grijalva releases statement.
UPDATE: The entire Dept of Justice complaint.
UPDATE: Former Sunland-Tujunga resident, AZ Governor Jan Brewer, issues her statement.
