An appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday in Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s appeal of a ruling that prevents police from enforcing a lesser-known part of the state’s immigration law.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is considering only a provision that bans people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day labor services and won’t confront other parts of the law.

Day labor organizers say they know of no arrests under the day labor rules when they were in effect from July 2010 until the February decision by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton that blocks them.

Brewer’s lawyers argue the restrictions are meant to confront traffic safety concerns, while opponents say the rules unconstitutionally restrict the rights of people who want to express their need for work.

  1. Traffic safety concerns are NOT the Governors’ issue. She has distain for the people, they have NOT been safe in Arizona — safety has nothing to do with her biased and bigoted agenda that has turned Arizona into a prison state and one no one would care to visit or live in.

  2. Illegal alien day laborers not only are a danger to citizens but send a message
    to other Mexican and South American residents that it is OK to come into the
    USA illegally and stand on a street corner soliciting work.
    This behavior is NOT OK.
    It is contributing to illegal immigration.
    It is contributing to the destruction of the American Dream
