Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he remains hopeful that Arizona's strict new immigration law will survive, despite a setback in federal court.
Cuccinelli was one of nine state attorneys general who filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the law.
A federal judge in Arizona on Wednesday blocked the law's most substantive provisions, including requirements that immigrants carry their papers at all times and that police check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws. Some minor provisions were allowed to stand.
Cuccinelli says he's pleased the entire statute wasn't enjoined, but disappointed that some parts were. He noted that the ruling is preliminary and is not a final decision on the merits.
