TUCSON - More reaction coming in on today's ruling over the most 'contentious' part of Arizona's Immigration law.
The Tucson Police Department has issued a news release saying it has not yet had the opportunity to fully review the decision.
The ruling allows that officers, while enforcing other laws, to question the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally.
Governor Jan Brewer says the law will go into effect shortly, but has not released a specific date. In its release, the Tucson Police Department says it will obtain further guidance regarding the ruling prior to taking any specific enforcement action.
TPD says it will abide by Judge Bolton's ruling in its entirety.
Tucson Police Department personnel have received several trainings related to SB 1070. In June of 2010, all
departmental personnel completed initial trainings. Additionally, personnel completed refresher training in June of 2012.
All Tucson Police Department personnel will receive further clarification and direction following a comprehensive
review of the ruling.
