Supreme Court: SB 1070 Mostly Struck Down

Posted By on Mon, Jun 25, 2012 at 7:43 AM

The Supreme Court has struck down three out of four challenged provisions in SB 1070, Arizona's controversial immigration law.

AP reports:

The Supreme Court has struck down key provisions of Arizona's crackdown on immigrants.

But the court said Monday that one part of the law requiring police to check the status of someone they suspect is not in the United States legally could go forward. Even there, though, the justices said the provision could be subject to additional legal challenges.

Plenty of reaction, we're sure, to come later today.

Here's the opinion, if you feel like reading it: 11-182b5e1.pdf

BTW: No ObamaCare decision today.
