ARIZONA | Federal Court Unfriendly To Federal Challenge of SB1070


Two of the three federal judges are themselves Hispanic. One is an
immigrant and naturalized citizen.

The U.S. Government has argued that the Arizona statute is “preempted”
by federal law. Maybe, maybe not, says the judge.

Federal judge to federal government: “I’ve read your brief, I’ve read
the District Court opinion, I’ve heard your interchange with my two
colleagues, and I don’t understand your argument …”

Something having the potential to violate someone’s rights is not the
same as ‘will’ violate someone’s rights.
