Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy
Arizona v. United States Going to the Supremes
The Supreme Court has decided - quite understandably - to weigh in on the SB1070 - the controversial Arizona immigration law that has spawned copycat bills around the country. The courts have been divided regarding where the lines can be drawn constitutionally when states decide to get in the immigration lawmaking business. I'm not going to weigh in to the predictions game (except the fact that Justice Kagan has recused herself won't help opponents of the law), but there is something to be said for at least having some certainty one way or the other on this issue.
