CNN, Fox News and MSNBC are reporting that Judge Susan Bolton has blocked key portions of SB1070, Arizona's police-state immigration, from taking effect tomorrow, when the law was due to be enacted.

According to Fox's reporters, Bolton has issued an injunction blocking the state from enacting the portions of the bill that require police officers to request immigration papers and which make failure to possess immigration papers a crime.

More details shortly.

UPDATE 1: Details from AP:

The law will still take effect Thursday, but without many of the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. The judge also put on hold a part of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton put those controversial sections on hold until the courts resolve the issues.

UPDATE 2: Here's the ruling itself. Plus: The New York Times has more.
