The mood in general is to wait a while - a year or two, perhaps - until the law's actual implementation is seen.

Also, the legal thinking is, if the law is tossed out by the courts, it will be because it violates the due process rights of businesses, not because of anything directly to do with illegal aliens themselves. Kind of an interesting point.
Even if this particular law is tossed-------others are waiting in the wings, just in case, I suspect

The tide is turning against illegals and their enablers very rapidly.

Well, the main challenges would come against the 'business death penalty' provision, and the legal standards, burdens of proof, etc. required to bring it into effect. The thing is, corporations have some of the legal characteristics of actual human persons. It isn't clear that the state of Arizona could impose a permanent 'business death penalty' using only an administrative proceeding. There may need to be more review involved.

I'm sure there will be law review articles on that in a couple months, in any case. We'll see how it develops.
