Report: States rethinking immigration legislation after Arizona court ruling

USA Today reports that state legislators in an array of states - including Idaho - are rethinking plans to introduce Arizona-style immigration laws after a federal court temporarily blocked the core of the law. Among state lawmakers quoted: Idaho Senate President Pro-Tem Bob Geddes. The newspaper reports that he "says his colleagues had planned to file an S.B. 1070 replica but are making changes. 'I don't know that we would cut and paste exactly what Arizona has, based on what the judge has already ruled,' Geddes says. 'That doesn't help us much to engage in the same battle that Arizona has lost.'"
