Judge sets hearing for Arizona’s new immigration law

A federal judge set a July 15 for hearing arguments about whether she ought to block Arizona’s new immigration law from taking effect.

A Phoenix police officer who filed one of the five challenges to the new law had asked U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton to hold a hearing on his preliminary injunction request before the law takes effect July 29.

Lawyers for the state say the challenges should be dismissed because the suits are based on mere speculation that the law will harm people and predict that the law will be found constitutional. The judge will also hear a request by the state to throw out the officer’s lawsuit.

In another lawsuit challenging the law, Bolton set similar hearings for July 22.

    Judge Bolton needs to be sent to live in Mexico. Her allowing Mexico to file a suit is Anti-American. The Arizon law mirrors the federal law, which by the way Obama refuses to uphold.

    The people that are against this law are probably illegals themselves. Phillip Calderon needs to worry about his own Country, and leave the USA alone. Remember the slogan “Dont Tread On Me”! Need I say more.
