And that is ALL that is ... spin. We need to stop going with headlines and read the decisions (said the lawyer). This is a HUGE HUGE HUGE loss for states rights and AZ.
We need to read these things and stay away from news entertainment.
Protection of borders is a Federal issue which is why the Court said that federal statutes “preempted” the Arizona law. Federal law always supersedes state law (Article VI, Clause 2). The issue is that Obama (and Bush for that matter) did not enforce existing federal law covering the borders and Arizona sought to protect itself. If the federal laws already in place are enforced properly by the executive branch then Arizona likely never passes SB 1070.
