SB 1070 ruling: Judge paves way for immigration-status checks

By Michael Kiefer

The Arizona Republic

A U.S District Court judge on Wednesday denied a request to impose a new injunction on a portion of Arizona’s immigration law that requires law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of people stopped during the investigation of other crimes.

The judge did, however, grant a preliminary injunction against a statute making it illegal to harbor individuals suspected of being in the country illegally.

“The governor is pleased with the decision,” said gubernatorial spokesman Matthew Benson. “This paves the way for full implementation of SB 1070 as quickly as the district court lifts the injunction.”

“What the court has said is that the heart of SB 1070 needs to take effect,” he said. “And then the courts can later judge whether there are instances that can be proven of civil rights violations or racial profiling.”
