From Arizona Indymedia - On July 28th at about 10:00 a.m. Federal judge Susan Bolton issued a preliminary injunction against four provisions included in Arizona's anti-immigrant law, SB1070. These provisions include the mandate that law enforcement officers solicit the immigration status of anyone they encounter; the portion that makes failure to carry immigration documents a state crime; the portion that makes it a state crime for undocumented immigrants to perform work in Arizona; and the portion allowing for warrantless arrest of anybody who is suspected of having committed a "deportable offense". Judge Bolton's injunction is only temporary, which means that each of these provisions can still go into effect if the judge decides, after fully hearing the case, that they are acceptable.
Locally demonstrations in solidarity with those in Arizona impacted by the new law were held. One civil disobedience in the mid Wilshire area resulted in 10 arrests. Reports from the Newswire 75-100 Rally Against SB1070 in Pomona by Cameron H. | | Lockdown at Highland and Wilshire
