I haven’t seen the full report yet, but it appears that The Supreme Court has struck down 3 of 4 components of the AZ immigration law and upheld 1 component. They are also saying there will be no ruling on HellCare today.
The Supreme Court has struck down most of the controversial Arizona immigration law, but upheld a key provision.
The provision that was upheld requires state and local police officers, during routine stops, to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect could be in the country illegally.
Other provisions, though, were struck down.
The federal government claimed the law encroached on its authority to enforce immigration law.
