Supreme Court Upholds Arizona Law Penalizing Businesses For Hiring Illegal Immigrants

By a 5-3 vote, the court said Thursday that federal immigration law gives states the authority to impose sanctions on employers who hire unauthorized workers.

A victory for Arizona in this case is a victory for the nation and legal immigrants and honest businesses. I won’t read too much into it but it does seem to indicate that some members of the SCOTUS rejects the Federal argument that States have no input on immigration issues. Of course there is still the key ruling to come sometime down the road on SB1070.
