Brewer wants day labor rules to take effect

PHOENIX (AP) - Lawyers for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer are asking an appeals court to rescind a ruling that prevents police from enforcing a little-known part of Arizona's immigration law.
   
That part of the law prohibits people from blocking traffic when they seek or offer day labor services on streets.
   
Brewer's appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is separate from an appeal she lodged before the U.S. Supreme Court.
   
The nation's highest court is expected to rule in the coming days on whether to let police enforce the law's more controversial  elements.
   
The day labor rules aren't part of the case before the Supreme Court.
   
The restrictions on day labor took effect in July 2010 but were put on hold in February by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton.
