Donations to defend Ariz. immigration law top $2M

Gov. Jan Brewer’s office says Arizona has received more than $2 million in donations to help pay for the legal defense of the state’s controversial law targeting illegal immigration.

Seven lawsuits were filed to challenge the law. Two have been dismissed but a judge ruled on filed by the U.S. Justice Department by blocking key provisions of the law from taking effect July 29.

Brewer is appealing that ruling.
