Judge rejects bid to block employer sanctions law


A federal judge on Friday denied a request to temporarily block the state's employer-sanctions law from taking effect, clearing the way for the controversial law to go into effect Jan. 1.

It also sets the stage for an 11th-hour legal showdown in San Francisco, as the business and Hispanic civil-rights groups which have been challenging the law intend to seek an injunction from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals next week.

In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Neil V. Wake wrote that despite the plaintiffs' arguments that they would be harmed by the law, the greater harm would be to the general public if the law does not take effect as envisioned by the Legislature.

"The balance of harm tips sharply against Plaintiffs, not in their favor," Wake wrote.

He noted that the county attorneys charged with enforcing the law stated in court earlier this week that they could not bring any enforcement actions until at least Feb. 1, casting doubt on the arguments that the imminent debut of the law would hurt anyone in the short run.

Even *if* they were an economic plus, more sensible folks like me are more concerned about maintaining the borders, language, and culture that have served us well for a long time. Without those unifying elements, this will not be a stable country, or the America we know today. I'll gladly pay a little more for things, or have some economic hardship, than see this country become, little by little, more like Mexico or Central America.
I'm from the southwest originally, and don't like what it is becoming. Nor do most of folks out there. And that's the reason this bill came about, and hopefully it will put a damper on the invasion.
THANK YOU mrkool. It appears we will have to fight for our counrty right here in America.

I'm all for getting rid of the illegals...but make sure you have plan to fill in the Gaps!! If not then there will be a hefty price to pay...everyone ready to be price gouged in areas other then gas prices?
You are on the money. Too many welfare people sitting around collecting checks make the healthy ones pick up trash, mow the golf courses, etc or they will be cut off. But I want to include all other illegals from Asia and Europe that live in Arizona, get them out of here too.

Why does it always come down to money? Does not anybody understand right and wrong? We have laws in America that are being ignored already. Why would any state need someone who is here that does not belong here? If their leaving causes a problem, then so be it. Anyone who gets the USA for a home should go through the established channels. Otherwise, they don't belong here. What is the use of having laws if they are not used.

No argument from me either.

I thought we were talking about ALL illegals and not just the Mexicans, who far outnumber any other illegals.
