This spotted dog doesn't know when to quit! Jan wants to appeal the block on the racist immigration law.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said Wednesday she would swiftly appeal a judge's ruling blocking key parts of a new state immigration law, vowing to take it all the way to the Supreme Court.Jan, give it up.
"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," Brewer said in a statement.
She said the state would soon file an expedited appeal after District Judge Susan Bolton blocked parts of the law which would have given police the power to check the immigration status of all suspects.
Bolton also suspended parts of the law, which goes into effect on Thursday, requiring everyone to carry proof of their residency status and making it a crime for illegal immigrants to seek work.
