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.

No sanctions charges; appeal continues

The Pima County Attorney's office won't file any charges next week against businesses that may have violated the state's Legal Arizona Workers Act, Deputy Pima County Attorney Dan Jurkowitz said Friday.

Three complaints against Pima County employers have been lodged since the law took effect Jan. 1, Jurkowitz said.

Jurkowitz said the complaints are still under investigation, and it could be weeks or months before decisions are made on whether to prosecute.

County attorneys around the state agreed to wait until March 1 to begin prosecuting cases under the new employer sanctions statute.

The delay was to give challenges to the law time to work their way through the courts.

Efforts to block the implementation of the law so far have failed. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Thursday denied an injunction sought by businesses.
