Arizona immigration law | Valley has mixed reactions
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- A new law designed to crack down on illegal immigration will take effect in Arizona. But a last-minute ruling by a federal judge blocked some of its most controversial components.
The law takes effect at midnight ... minus a provision requiring police to check the immigration status of people they stop. Demonstrators ready to protest ... celebrated instead. The ruling drew mixed reaction in the Valley.
The governor of Arizona was disappointed with Wednesday's decision and plans to appeal.
