PHOENIX — Arizona asked an appeals court Thursday to lift a judge's order blocking most of the state's immigration law. Meanwhile, the city of Phoenix filled with protesters, including dozens who were arrested for confronting officers in riot gear.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said she was "disappointed" in U.S. District Court Judge Susan R. Bolton's ruling blocking the implementation of a number of the controversial law's provisions, and lashed out against those who have protested against the measure.
"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," she said.
