Immigration law challengers want to voice opinions

Groups that challenged Arizona’s new immigration law are asking a federal appeals court to let them file friend-of-the-court briefs in an appeal of a ruling that put parts of the law on hold.

Civil rights groups, a Phoenix police officer, a Latino clergy group and others asked for permission to make filings that will urge the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco to uphold the ruling.

Gov. Jan Brewer is appealing the ruling that arose from the U.S. Justice Department’s challenge to the law.

The groups seeking to file the briefs include the American Civil Liberties Union, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund and the League of United Latin American Citizens.
