Supreme Court upholds key part of Arizona for now; strikes down other provisions
by Robert Barnes, Updated: Monday, June 25, 2:26 PM
The Supreme Court on Monday said states may play a limited role in enforcing laws on illegal immigration, upholding part of Arizona’s controversial law but striking other portions it said intruded on the federal government’s powers.
The justices let stand for now the part of the law that requires police to check the immigration status of anyone they detain or arrest if they have “reasonable suspicion” that the person is in the country illegally. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) declared that decision, on the part of the law that had generated the most controversy, a victory. But the ruling also in part vindicated the Obama administration, with the court rejecting three provisions that the federal government opposed.
