Unknown when judge will rule on immigration law

A federal judge hearing the six challenges to Arizona’s new immigration law says she makes no promises on whether she’ll rule on requests to block enforcement of the law before it takes effect July 29.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton says she intends to take the time required to make a sound legal decision.

The federal government filed a challenge to the law Tuesday, arguing the new law was an unconstitutional intrusion on Washington’s power to regulate immigration.

Bolton rejected the federal government’s proposed July 26 hearing date for hearing its request to block the law from taking effect.

The judge says the request didn’t give her enough time to make a ruling and instead set a July 22 hearing.
