    PHOENIX - Two federal court hearings in Phoenix ended Thursday without a ruling on whether the state's new immigration law should take effect amid a flurry of legal challenges against the crackdown.
    During a Thursday morning hearing, Judge Susan Bolton told lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union that she's required to consider blocking only parts of the law, not the entire statute as requested.
    A lawyer for the civil rights group says the law's provisions are designed to work together to prod illegal immigrants from the state, which he says is unconstitutional.?????

    Bolton repeatedly questioned Kneedler to explain how specific provisions intruded on federal authority. "Why can't Arizona be as inhospitable as they wish to people who have entered the United States illegally?" she said.

    Only the beginning, but a great beginning. Judge knows the case backward and has already made her ruling.

    U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton also went beyond dry legal analysis to point out some of the everyday realities of illegal immigration and how that applies to the new law.
    Without prodding from attorneys, the judge noted that the federal government erected signs in a wilderness area south of Phoenix that warn visitors about immigrant and drug smugglers passing through public lands. She said the stash houses where smugglers hide immigrants from Mexico before bringing them into the country's interior have become a fixture on the news in Arizona.
    Bolton, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, repeatedly questioned Justice Department attorney Edwin Kneedler to explain how specific provisions of the law intruded on federal authority as he had argued.
    "You can barely go a day without a location being found in Phoenix where there are numerous people being harbored," said Bolton, who didn't issue a ruling after the two hearings.

    It's the judge's job to grill both lawyer teams hard. None of it means anything until she issues a ruling.

    I bet my last dollar that she will rule out some and leave others intact. If she rules agains the law entirely, not to fear as there will be other laws that will surface that WILL be allowed to go forward with this problem of illegals running around free in this country as if they were invited guests and as if this country had laid out the red carpet for them.

    Word up, people: the sun also rises in the EAST. I know, it may challenge the facts because it happens more often, even so. Illegal aliens are...Jesus, YOU figure it out already. Or do you need a Judge to tell you the obvious?

    Let's do a poll and see what the PEOPLE of Arizona feels about the issue...it's much better way of governing than a bunch of Sanctuary lawyers. Let's end the lobbying by the Latino community who feels threatened that may have to play by the rules. It's not that you are Latino that's the issue; it's whether you have the right to be here. If you went through the line to come here lawfully, that's what we expect from 100% of you.

    we already know how arizona polls, they favor this bill. That doesn't mean a judge shouldn't check its constitutionality.
