Happy Thursday! What’s up?
I was naturally pleased to learn that a federal judge blocked key parts of the proposed Arizona immigration law that would have required police officers to check people’s immigration status.
[The judge]delayed provisions that required immigrants to carry their papers and banned illegal immigrants from soliciting employment in public places — a move aimed at day laborers. In addition, she blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants for crimes that can lead to deportation.
“Requiring Arizona law enforcement officials and agencies to determine the immigration status of every person who is arrested burdens lawfully present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked,” Bolton wrote.
What do you think? Will this end up before the Supreme Court?
In more frivolous news, President Obama will be on The View today. Among the tidbits you can expect: he reveals he was not invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this weekend.
In even more frivolous news, a recent poll shows that Californians prefer Barbara Boxer’s “So yesterday” hair to Carly Fiorina’s ‘do. Lefty coifs FTW!
Today is my Friday, and T.G.I.T.!! I’ve hit a huge wall, exhaustion-wise. Going back to work, followed by a lovely visit from our niece and nephew, and now an upcoming visit from Elisa and our other dear college friend, and I’m fried. Happy, but fried!
What are you up to today? Chat away!
