9th Circuit refuses to lift injunction of Arizona law

PHOENIX -- A federal appeals court has upheld a lower court's ruling that bars enforcement of a minor section of Arizona's 2010 immigration law.

In a 46-page ruling Tuesday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to lift an injunction against a portion of SB1070 that makes it a crime to transport or harbor immigrants who are in the country illegally.

The appellate court called that portion of SB1070 vague and ``pre-empted by federal law.''

The ruling came out of a lawsuit filed by a coalition of civil rights and immigrant advocacy groups.

The harboring ban was in effect from late July 2010 until a federal judge in Phoenix blocked its enforcement in early September 2012 as part of civil rights coalition's challenge.
