Court Upholds Ruling In Favor Of Day Laborers

Day-LaborersAn appeals court has upheld a ruling that prevents police in Arizona from enforcing part of the state's 2010 immigration enforcement law that prohibited people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day labor services on streets.

Monday's ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals marked a loss for Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. 

Brewer had asked the appeals court to rescind a February 2012 decision by a judge who rejected Brewer's arguments that the rules were needed for traffic safety, saying day laborers congregate on roadsides in large groups, flag down vehicles and often swarm those that stop.
