So far, of the six seven judges to review and issue injunctions against the anti-immigrant laws, three four have been Republican and three have been Democrat:

  • Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge John T. Noonan, Jr (Reagan appointee)
  • Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard Paez (Clinton appointee)
  • Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Carlos Bea (Bush appointee)
  • District Court Judge Susan Bolton (Clinton appointee)
  • District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker (Reagan appointee)
  • District Court Judge Thomas Thrash (Clinton appointee)
  • District Judge Clark Waddoups (Bush appointee)

Gotta keep an eye out for those radical leftist appointees from Reagan and Bush!

UPDATE: I had forgotten that the Utah immigration bill had been enjoined last month, too. While it is not exactly an Arizona-copycat statute, it is still a state-level anti-immigration law with some similar provisions. Accordingly, I have added Waddoups to the list.
