Rare Good News Dept: A federal judge has blocked
the most outrageous parts of Arizon'a immigration law, scheduled to
take effect Thursday. It will doubtless head to the courts now.

legal resident aliens under the new (law). By enforcing
this statute, Arizona would impose a 'distinct, unusual and
extraordinary' burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal
government has the authority to impose."
