I understood they sent that provision back to the lower court for reconsideration.

imho this is wishful conservative thinking. I keep hearing that they are allowing the one provision upheld to go back so they can see how it works in practice, or upon further lower court review. It will be challenged immediately.

They strongly upheld the principle that the federal government gets to set immigration policy, and this was in spite of the oral arguments which sounded hostile to the government.

This is SPIN. The “upheld” is even going back for review. This is a major major loss for AZ and state’s rights. Ignore the spin.

Poor logic again by the Supremes.

The Constitution perscribes federal control over NATIRALIZATION. Period.

They used this to say that it also deals with non-naturalization issues like employment, which are NOT naturalization issues.

Like the Commerce clause, they stretched the Constitution to cover areas it did not apply to.

Under their weird reasoning, it is now legal to be an illegal alien. It is also now legal to take illegal employment.

It’s 1984 again.

From NBC (headline): High court strikes down key parts of Arizona immigration law

From WSJ (headline): Supreme Court Upholds Key Part of Arizona Law

Different perspectives

I get it. They are giving the power back to the Feds. This Admin has decreed they won’t enforce the laws at all, but another Admin can enforce the laws as written. We better get a new Admin who wants this country to succeed and thrive. Please God.

I’m sorry to see Roberts side with the liberal majorit.

I love Scalia’s comment that if Arizon is not allowed to enforce its territory, we should stop calling it a sovereign state.

Well Antonin, these separate states have not been sovereign perhaps as far back as 1865. The certainly are not now. The US Central government has trod up state sovereignty for so long now, few even recognized the seperate states should be sovereign.

I know many conservatives who have no clue of the histories or purposes for the electoral college and the 10th amendment. They are good solid conservatives, just ignorant of these fundamental ideals.

As a rabid border enforcement supporter, and an avowed enemy of the idea of illegal immigrants staying here, I am not as inclined to view these rulings to be as entirely negative as folks might expect me to be.

On the surface it seems the SCOTUS ruled that states are not allowed to set immigration policy. Even so, it seems the SCOTUS did uphold the idea that states can help enforce federal immigration laws.

Laws already exist to cover the employment of illegals. This and other duplications are probably unnecessary. What the court did uphold, is the plan to require officers to ask people they think to be illegal immigrants, for their papers.

If under further review by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, this is upheld, what is to stop states from doing work-place raids, at establishments they think to be employing illegals?

If I were the governor or a member of the Legislature in Arizona, I would be proposing work place enforcement within hours. Determining a work-place to be hiring illegals, the federal government would be forced to take legal action against that establishment.

Very good!

From what I can see they upheld the right of cops in Arizona to check the immigration status of people they stop, but struck down the portion that required immigrants to carry their papers. WTF????????

The justice also noted that "discretion in the enforcement of immigration law embraces immediate human concerns," and also "involve(s) policy choices that bear on this Nation's international relations."

What the heck does any of that have to do with the CONSTITUTIONALITY of those provisions?

Barack Obama is celebrating the SCOTUS decision and is now digging the knife deeper into the backs of the people of Arizona. Just like his “I Won” comment.

He has told the people of Arizona....F**K YOU. I’ll do what I want, when I want.

And not one person will do anything about it. They’re hoping and praying that he’ll lose in November. But, what if he doesn’t

Good Job Mr President....thumbing your nose at the citizens of the United States, yet again.
