Federal appeals panel upholds freeze on Arizona law | Political Insider.

Just in time for today’s state Senate debate over HB 87, the bill modeled on Arizona’s attempt to attack illegal immigration. From the Washington Post:

A federal appeals court on Monday upheld a lower court decision that blocked the most contested provisions of Arizona’s immigration law from taking effect.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that a federal judge did not abuse her discretion in blocking provisions of the law that would, among other things, require police to check immigration status if they stop someone while enforcing other laws.
