Ariz. Gov. Considers 'Tweaking' Immigration Law

Ad Feedback

Following a federal appeals court's decision not to intervene in the controversy over Arizona's new immigration law until November, the state's governor said she may consider changing parts of the measure struck down by the court.

On July 28, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary injunction delaying some of the most contentious parts of the new law from going into effect.

Gov. Jan Brewer said that the judge's ruling brought to light flaws in the measure "that can possibly be fixed, and that's what we would do."

The governor is currently talking to state legislative leaders about the possibility of a special session. Still, she added that no specific changes have been specified.

Supporters of the law have set up a fund to help get the judges ruling overturned. Currently, the fund contains more than $1.6 million.
