  U.S. judge greenlights Prop. 200
U.S. judge greenlights Prop. 200 | The Arizona Daily Star �: "As of today, the state of Arizona will begin enforcing Proposition 200, the voter-approved initiative that denies some public benefits to illegal immigrants.

A federal judge in Tucson on Wednesday lifted a temporary restraining order that had blocked the state from implementing the initiative. After his ruling, Gov. Janet Napolitano issued an executive order directing state agencies to comply with the law.

'The voters made the decision, and I intend to make sure the law is enforced correctly,' she said in a statement.

Kathy McKee, a key supporter of the initiative, said: 'We just hoped against all hopes that justice would be served and it was.'

The ruling of U.S. District Court Judge David Bury - which came amid a packed courtroom and extra security outside his sixth-floor courtroom - gives state workers the green light to demand proof of legal status from applicants. If workers don't report illegal residents to immigration authorities, the workers could face jail time and a fine."
