Lots of handwringing, folks seeing the decision as an Obama victory.
The core of the law was upheld, the most important part.
“The Obama administration argued vigorously against the law, and particularly against the provision of the right of police to check the legal status of people that they come into contact with on routine stops, who they have reason to believe are not in the country legally. The court struck down 53 (Scalia, Thomas, Alito dissenting, Kagan recused) other provisions in the law that make it against Arizona state law for illegal immigrants to apply for a job or fail to carry identification that says whether they are in the U.S. legally. “
So. If a business asks an applicant if they are here legally, or checks and finds out on their own, he or she is not, can’t they call the local police and report that individual for arrest and detention?
Lots of handwringing, folks seeing the decision as an Obama victory. Not so.
