Perhaps the Judge needs to read the law again. Here is a copy:
[des news doesn't allow links]
It allows federal agents to arrest on federal law based on the US constitution.
It sounds like the Judge doesn't like the restriction of the US Constitution or the idea that the feds should be enforcing federal law, not abusing state laws.

The bill had no constitutional note, which means the lawsuit is apt to be tossed eventually.

Now why would anyone even think that agents of the federal government are overstepping the limits of their authority? What an absurd notion. We all know that every federal official follows the very letter of the law for every action they take, and never oppress any citizen, or fail to carry out their duties in a scrupulously correct manner.

You know, Americans have a long history of not taking well to tyrannical governments. The people first ask for a redress of their grievances,and work within the system. But, in the past, they have reached a point where it became "...necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,"

The Utah law is restrained, specific, and respectful of the Constitution and the 10th Amendment. It does not limit federal enforcement of federal laws.

The judge is wrong in his decisions thus far.

Judge Nuffer is a well-respected and thoughtful jurist. In my experience, he has not proven to be ideological. We are lucky to have him on the bench.
