A US FEDERAL JUDGE has blocked parts of Arizona’s immigration law just hours before it was due to take effect. The state is expected to engage in a legal battle to have the judge’s decision overturned.

The ruling means that a section of the law which required police officers to check a person’s immigration status as they enforced other laws has been removed. It also delayed the provision stating that immigrants would have to carry their documentation on them at all times.

The law was signed in April by Arizona’s Republican governor Jan Brewer and drew severe criticism from the White House, which said it would sue the state over the law. Obama called it “misguided” and potentially discriminatory, according to CBS.

Today, the US President expressed cautious optimism on hearing the news about the federal ruling.
