A federal judge today denied a request for an injunction to block the state's employer-sanctions law pending an appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The ruling means that prosecutors are free to begin enforcement actions on March 1.

U.S. District Court Judge Neil V. Wake rejected the injunction request from business and Hispanic civil-rights groups, saying they failed to show it is likely they would prevail in an appeals-court hearing. He also said they didn't demonstrate that businesses in Arizona would suffer greater hardships from having to comply with the sanctions law than the state in general would suffer if the law were not enforced.

Admittedly; the imploding economy may be a significant factor in the muted opposition against the law.

Better to lay off illegal immigrants vs. US citizens/green card holders------the former have no recourse.
