Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

Is not surprised by Bolton’s ruling, says it will have little impact on his planned “crime-suppression” operation scheduled for Thursday.

“That’s not going to affect our human-smuggling or employer-sanction investigations, that wasn’t addressed in that law,” he said.

Arpaio said the only thing Bolton’s ruling changed is the ability for Arizona law enforcement to use a state charge – willful failure to carry documents – to book someone into jail. Now, Arpaio said, the agencies can continue to contact Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to determine if federal agents will take custody of the suspect.

Everyone booked into Maricopa County Jail will continue to have their immigration status screened by federally trained sheriff’s deputies through an agreement with ICE. ” We’re going to determine on our 287(g) (agreement), whether they’re illegal anyway,” he said.



PHOENIX – A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona’s immigration law from taking effect, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown.

The overall law will still take effect Thursday, but without the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

The judge also put on hold parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled that those sections should be put on hold until the courts resolve the issues. Other provisions of the law, many of them procedural and slight revisions to existing Arizona immigraiton statute, will go into effect at 12:01 a.m.
