Supremes to Weigh AZ Immigration Law

Arizona’s hotly contested immigration law is headed to the Supreme Court. The high court announced in a brief statement on Monday that would it rule on whether the state could enforce the legislation, which has currently been put on hold by the Obama administration. The law, SB 1070, requires all immigrants to have their paperwork on them at all times and asks police officers to check for the documents during routine traffic stops if there’s reasonable suspicion that the person may be an alien. Recent appointee Elena Kagan will recuse herself due to her work on the case when she was solicitor general.
