Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, in a statement:
Today our great country gained further ground in our mission to form a more perfect union. I said from the beginning that the Arizona immigration law was not just anti-immigrant, it was anti-American and I added my voice to millions of my fellow Americans who strongly opposed this unpatriotic law....
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's ruling to block several of the most unjust sections of the law is an imperative step that recognizes the rights of all Americans....

From a statement by Cardinal Roger Mahony:
I am grateful that U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton ruled today that the most egregious sections of the Arizona Senate Bill 1070 were not allowable under Federal law and ordered those halted.
This entire Arizona attempt to deal with various immigration issues outside Federal law reveals once again the level of frustration across the country that the U.S. Congress will not deal with the pressing issue of needed immigration reform. Without needed Congressional action, local communities and states will continue to propose stop-gap measures which do not address all aspects of needed immigration reform.
Mahony also points to a blog item he posted on seeking common ground on immigration reform.
