Federal Judge Upholds Denying Bond to Illegal Immigrants

Fox News: PHOENIX - Federal Judge Susan Bolton has ruled in favor of denying bond to illegal immigrants who were arrested on felony charges.

Judge Bolton ruled in favor of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and County Attorney Bill Montgomery. They were being sued by two national law firms and the National ACLU Representatives.

In 2006, Arizona voters passed Proposition 100, which precluded bail to arrestees who entered or remained in the state illegally and who were charged with serious felony offenses. The ACLU claimed the law was unconstitutional and sued to stop it from being enforced. They alleged that the law was excessively harsh, a violation of the illegal immigrant's due process, and of their 5th, 6th, and 8th Amendment rights.

After several months of studying the evidence in the case, Judge Bolton resolved 5 of the 6 complaints in the county's favor. The 6th count of the original complaint survives the decision by Judge Bolton. "I am happy to get Judge Bolton's decision. I always knew and felt that the County Attorney and I proceeded fairly and correctly to implement the mandate of the voters," stated Sheriff Arpaio.

"Proposition 100 was crafted to deal with an ongoing problem -- illegal aliens committing serious felonies and using the courts as a revolving door to escape justice by skipping out after getting a far too lenient bail."
