Protesters on both sides of immigration debate frustrated by new law...

Arizona -- Opponents of Arizona's immigration crackdown went ahead with protests Thursday despite a judge's ruling that delayed enforcement of most the law.

Meanwhile, sheriff's deputies in some areas of the state vowed to step up enforcement anyway.

Police made several arrests at Phoenix protests.

The law's chief sponsor claims there was no big change.

"The handcuffs come off for law enforcement. They have all the latitude they need to ask. that hasn't been changed," said Republican State Senator Russell Pearce.

Some Arizona police are glad the court blocked much of new law.

Pima County's Sheriff says it would have cost the state millions.

The state has asked an appeals court to delay the judges ruling and let the tough new law take full effect while the issue moves through the courts.

Napolitano, the x-governor of AZ, is looking for complete amnesty for illegals without going through Congress or the American people. The more publicity these people get, the more the rest of America thinks their numbers are overwhelming. They are not. Its up to the real Americans (legal) to stand up and keep the horde of illegals from overtaking Our Country.

So when those 240people who became citizens the right and legal way they were told to always carry their premanent residency card, as directed by a decades old law.

So the gov. is mad because they fell asleep behind the wheel on this issue and now want to redeem themselves by letting people demand changes, when they show obvious dis-regard of our laws and procedures that are also decades old before this issue even came up.Yet you blame a state for all this mess?

All for future votes!
