Barrett Statement on Arizona Immigration Law Ruling


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC-03) released the following statement after a federal judge blocked several key provisions of the Arizona immigration law from taking effect:

"I am very disappointed with the court's decision to block key provisions of Arizona's new immigration law. While our nation is in dire need of immigration reform, the Obama Administration has yet to produce a plan that will strengthen border security and protect citizens from border violence.

Until federal government properly enforces our immigration laws, states should have every right to tackle illegal immigration and border violence head on."
