Supreme Court discusses Arizona immigration law
04/25/2012 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // justicenews // Justice News Flash
Washington, D.C. – The Supreme Court discussed elements of a controversial Arizona law that would require police offers to check the immigration status of individuals suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), both liberal and conservative justices debated the Obama administration’s assertion that making the records check and other provisions of the measure, aimed to reduce illegal immigration in Arizona, were not within the realm of authority granted to the state.
As noted in the report, protestors gathered outside of the court building in opposition to the passage of the law. Other states including Alabama, Indiana, and South Carolina have also passed similar laws, which may be impacted by the Supreme Court’s decision.
Civil rights groups that support the administration’s challenge to the law in federal court, assert such measures promote issues such as racial profiling.
The court is expected to render its decision regarding the passage of the law in June.
