Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement in response to today’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Arizona’s Illegal Immigration Law SB 1070:
“We are disappointed with today’s court decision, though heartened that ‘sanctuary cities’ will be banned in Arizona as of tomorrow. Judicial Watch will work with SB 1070 author Arizona State Sen. Pearce to continue to defend this law in the courts. And ‘sanctuary cities’ in Arizona should know that they will be subject to lawsuits if they don’t start complying with federal law. The Obama administration is oblivious to the lawlessness and danger to the public safety caused by its failure to secure the borders and enforce the law,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
