Federal Judge Puts Parts of Ariz. Immigration Law on Hold

The Associated Press has reported that a federal judge has blocked some parts of Arizona's controversial immigration-enforcement law, which is scheduled to go into effect tomorrow.

The judge put on hold the part of the law that requires police officers to inquire about a person's immigration status while taking action on other laws. I wrote an article for Education Week about the possible repercussions of that part of the law on undocumented students in schools.
