Arizona's controversial anti-illegal immigration law, which went into effect on Thursday, hit a snag when a federal judge stripped the provision that would have allowed police to question a suspect's immigration status. Gov. Jan Brewer said she plans to appeal U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton's decision and is willing to take it to the U.S. Supreme Court. The judge's decision has altered the dynamics of the opposition to the law, as protesters Thursday took to the streets with mixed expressions of relief and outrage.
