Key Provisions in SB1070 Struck Down

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton struck down key provisions in Arizona's infamous SB 1070 law today and ruled that states cannot preempt federal law. According to The Washington Post:

"Bolton ruled that the injunction would apply to the portion of the state law that requires police to try to determine the immigration status of a person they arrest, stop or detain while enforcing other laws if they reasonably suspect the person is in the United States illegally
