News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Appeals to stop state sanctions law denied

Prosecutors are free to file complaints for violations of the state's employer-sanctions law, as the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday denied requests for emergency injunctions to block the law.

The law has been in effect since Jan. 1, but the county attorneys who are charged with enforcing the law have said they couldn't bring any prosecutions until March 1 at the earliest.

In its order, the three-judge panel rejected requests for emergency stays filed by a coalition of business groups and Hispanic civil-rights groups.

That means the groups' arguments that Arizona's law is unconstitutional will be heard later this year.
