The Supreme Court Issues Initial Consent With Portions of Arizona’s State Immigration Law

The U.S. Supreme Court indicated Wednesday it will uphold controversial parts of Arizona’s immigration law, namely a requirement that law enforcement officers check the immigration status of persons under suspicion of being unlawfully present in the U.S. What’s become a divisive issue in the 2012 presidential campaign, both conservative and liberal justices who heard oral arguments found no compelling objection to the respective section of the state’s immigration law.
