Arizona To Appeal Judge's Ruling Against Part Of Immigration Law

Published: Sep 28, 2012 8:00 am By: Reuters

"Arizona Governor Jan Brewer plans to fight a federal judge's ruling against a part of Arizona's tough immigration law that would have made it a crime to harbor undocumented immigrants, court papers showed on Thursday.

Lawyers for the Republican governor said the state planned to lodge an appeal with the 9th U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco to remove a block placed on the measure by a lower court judge on Sept. 5. A formal appeal has not yet been filed.

The measure, which makes it illegal to transport, shield or harbor an undocumented immigration within Arizona's borders, was barred by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton as part of a ruling allowing another key part of the law to go into effect."
