It was no surprise that a federal judge blocked most of Arizona's anti-immigration law from going into effect. Though many Americans are understandably frustrated about illegal immigration, immigration policy and its enforcement are a federal responsibility. Kris Kobach, who is running for Kansas secretary of state and helped draft the Arizona law, predicted that the law ultimately would be upheld. "This is only the first shot in a very, very long battle," he said. But Dennis Burke, the U.S. attorney for Arizona, noted that "the proponents of this went into court saying there was no question that this was constitutional, and now you have a federal judge who's said 'hold on, there's major issues with this bill.'" Kobach and others have argued that the law could be a blueprint for other states to follow, but Burke said "the blueprint is constitutionally flawed."
