Court upholds stay blocking Arizona immigration law

The headline:  Federal appeals court upholds stay blocking Arizona’s tough immigration law

The summary:  A federal court upheld a stay essentially blocking the implementation of Arizona’s immigration law.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer asked that the block be lifted in advance of the law’s targeted effective date but the request was ultimately denied.

The reaction:  I’m still not quite sure what to think of Arizona’s immigration law.  I believe that all non-citizens should be required to enter the country legally so I support the intent of the bill but I’m not sure that this version of it is the way to go about it.  Requiring regular citizenship checks is a good idea at a very high level but it seems a bit intrusive.  I’m torn.
