A District Court judge has filed an injunction against parts of Arizona’s SB 1070 mere hours before it was set to take effect. A legal battle with a good chance of leading to a Supreme Court ruling will soon begin.

Tea Party enthusiasts are likely atwitter after reading this sensational story linked to by the Drudge Report.

“Arizona is the busiest gateway into the country for illegal immigrants,” the article reads. “[T]he border is awash in drugs and smugglers that the state badly wants to stop.”

“Awash” as it may be, both the violent and property crime rates in Arizona have been at theirlowest in decades, and Phoenix’s crime rate is lower than other cities of similar size.

Meanwhile, neo-Nazis are patrolling the border in the spirit of Arizona’s can-do attitude. This particular neo-Nazi also stumps for SB 1070 author Russell Pearce.

The fight is far from over, and we hope to see you tomorrow in Charlotte and Raleigh.
