Okay, the law will go into effect Thursday night but without certain provisions. Fox reporting new law cannot make it a crime to not carry immigration papers, blocking way to determine immigration status.
The main point is you cannot create a new law that the Feds don’t have, like carrying immigration papers, an addition or change. Arizona could ask judge to stay her own ruling while they go immediate to the 9th Circuit, the most overturned circuit in America, which could happen today.
“Partial injunction” is the phrase being used. Everyone is scrambling to get exactly what is out. If there is no way for an officer to directly determine if someone is here illegally, i.e. the stopped person has no American I.D. it would make the law more difficult to apply. Arguments of “racial profiling” of course would also be used. AZ of course could also simply take everyone in who breaks the law including misdemeanors, driving without a license, etc.

UPDATE 7/28 130pm PT:
Statement from Gov Jan Brewer. Here’s a snippet, click through for full statement.
“This fight is far from over. In fact, it is just the beginning, and at the end of what is certain to be a long legal struggle, Arizona will prevail in its right to protect our citizens. I am deeply grateful for the overwhelmingly support we have received from across our nation in our efforts to defend against the failures of the federal government.
“I have consulted with my legal counsel about our next steps. We will take a close look at every single element Judge Bolton removed from the law, and we will soon file an expedited appeal at the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
