The State of Arizona has appealed Judge Susan Bolton’s order enjoining sections of SB 1070 as immigration protesters surged in Phoenix:
“Arizona asked an appeals court Thursday to lift a judge’s order blocking most of the state’s immigration law as the city of Phoenix filled with protesters, including 50 who were arrested for confronting officers in riot gear.
Outside the state Capitol, hundreds of protesters began marching at dawn, gathering in front of the federal courthouse where Bolton issued her ruling on Wednesday. They marched on to the office of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of his signature issues.”
Sheriff Arpaio told Fox News Neal Cavuto that most of the protesters were bussed in from California.
