AZ Plans Immigration Appeal to High Court

Arizona will ask the Supreme Court to lift an injunction that enjoined the most controversial sections of the state’s new immigration law from taking effect, Gov. Jan Brewer (photo) announced Monday.

“The decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the suspension of key provisions of Senate Bill 1070 does harm to the safety and well-being of all Arizonans, who suffer the negative effects of illegal immigration,” Brewer said, according to an Arizona Republic article.

“So instead of appealing to the larger, en banc panel of the 9th Circuit Court, my legal team will soon file an immediate petition with the (United States) Supreme Court to lift the injunction of Senate Bill 1070.” An earlier ruling, upholding the injunction, came from a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit.
