Legal challenge to Arizona law that prohibits illegal aliens from receiving some public benefit, dismissed...

The Washington Times--

A lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of proposition 200 in the Arizona, which was passed in November with 56% of the vote that require state and local government employees to verify the immigration status of those seeking public benefits, has been dismissed by a three-judge panel of the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.
"The suit, brought by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and Friendly House, a Phoenix-based nonprofit social service agency, was dismissed by U.S. Appeals Court Judges Alfred T. Goodwin, Johnnie B. Rawlinson and Thomas M. Reavley, sitting as a visiting judge. The panel said the plaintiffs had not shown they had been injured by implementation of the new law. "

Proposition 200 also subjects state employees to criminal charges if they fail to report illegals, and requires people to show proof of citizenship when they register to vote.

" But U.S. District Judge David C. Bury in Tucson, Ariz., refused to block implementation of the law and denied the request for a restraining order[to block implementation of the initiative], saying the organizations had failed to prove potential harm from enforcement of the initiative -- a position upheld by the appeals court panel.

It's not April 1st. so this must not be a joke. The 9th. Circus Court accually made a ruling I agree with. I wonder if global warming is causing Hell to freeze over.

It is about time! Take note, Sid, there is a way to control your city legally, without getting involved in immigration. It is all in the wording! Kudos to Arizona!

Bobkatt and Laura: I agree. It is high time the 9th Circus finally did something right. But, we mustn't start dancing in the streets quite yet. That is just once. After they realize that they actually did something for the good, they will revert back to their old behavior. But, at least, they broke their self-inflicted mold of following the lead, make that directions, of the AmINOCLU.

With all the new legislation being tried out regarding illegals, I think circuit courts will be very busy. I still believe that immigration will be a hot topic for elections. George is pushing the war to cover tracks of something else. An educated person does not push an agenda that is already certain death UNLESS they are trying to detract from something else.
