Judge Who Stayed Arizona Immigraton Law Was Recommended By GOP Senator Kyl
Before the right wing starts yelling, “Liberal judge!”, it would be wise to note that Arizona’s Jon Kyl recommended to Bill Clinton that Judge Susan Bolton be nominated to the District Court for the District of Arizona. Kyl, an ardent proponent of SB1070, cited Bolton’s “expertise and fairness.”
Prior to the announcement of her decision, Kyl speculated that “she will parse the law, that is to say she will perhaps extract certain portions of it that she think might be problematic and might enjoin those portions calling additional briefings from the parties.” Before learning of Bolton’s decision, Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) stated, “I’m confident Arizona will prevail.”
Arizona did prevail. So did the United States; but this is just one battle in a long war to preserve our rights and avoid moving toward a police state.Click here for reuse options!
