"Opponents argue the law's true purpose is to crackdown on illegal immigrants. They say it violates the laborers free speech rights and filed a lawsuit to invalidate it.

Hah! That's it exactly, to crack down on illegal aliens, what's so wrong with that?!!!! Free Speech, I thought those were rights of American citizens!

9th Circuit Court is the illegal aliens' best friend!!!

Traffic laws would apply in such a case, regardless of who it is blocking traffic the person can be cited for doing so. If in the interaction with law enforcement the officer believes the person is an illegal alien then the matter can be referred to ICE.
