9th Circuit Overturns AZ Law Denying Bail To People In U.S. Illegally


A federal appeals court overturned a 2006 Arizona law aimed at denying bail to people who are in the U.S. illegally and charged with a range of felonies, reports the Los Angeles Times. Proposition 100, a ballot measure that gained approval from nearly 80 percent of the state's voters, violates the due process clause of the 14th Amendment, said the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday.
