When the Supreme Court upheld the most important component of Arizona’s illegal immigration law earlier this summer, the left promised to challenge the law on civil rights violations.  The Supreme Court only considered the constitutional argument of federal preemption.  Well, it looks like their attempt to leave no illegal behind will fall flat.  Yesterday, Arizona District Judge Susan Bolton, the same judge who struck down the original law on grounds of federal preemption, sided with Governor Jan Brewer and tossed out the racial profiling charge.  The law stands.

On another front, last year the Obama NLRB sued Arizona for passing a state constitutional amendment protecting secret ballots during union elections.  Yesterday, an Obama-appointed district judge tossed out the suit.
