Federal Judge Blocks Utah Immigration Law

May 10, 2011  | 

A federal judge has blocked Utah's new immigration law, citing its similarity to Arizona's 2010 law that has also been blocked.

The new law would have given police the ability to check the immigration status of anyone they arrest. It went into effect today, and was blocked by U.S. District Clark Waddoups at a hearing later in the day.

Utah modeled its law after the Arizona immigration law of 2010 (SB1070) that may head to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Utah's law took effect today after civil and immigration rights activists failed to get state officials to agree to delay enforcement.

This only gives illegals more opportunity to harm or kill citizens and law enforcement personnel. It's a gross miscarriage of justice!

The A-ACLU (Anti-American Civil Liberties Union) is at it again in collusion with a federal judge willing to legislate from the bench and that will supposedly make his final determination as to whether the new law is constitutional or not in July. Utah's law was carefully crafted to avoid what that equally screwed up federal judge in AZ and the left wing 9th Circuit held violated the Constitution. The local A-ACLU spokeswoman was gloating on TV over the success of their suit and said Utah didn't change the law enough to meet the Constitution. She was practically frothing at the mouth. I had to wonder if she has ever actually read it.

Beside that, people that are here illegally do NOT have Constitutional rights except to be treated humanely while they are being promptly deported. I am sick of hearing their sob stories of coming here for a better life while at the same time seeing the high percentage of violent crimes large numbers of them are involved in daily right here in Utah.

You just don't understand, as the Bama' said yesterday at the Mexican border in his speech to gain illegal alien voters, "He's checked border security off the to-do list, and it's time for Congress to write a legalization bill".

Nothing to see here, move along.
