Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear arguments over the constitutionally of the “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act,” also known as SB 1070, Arizona’s draconian and game changing immigration law.
It is a big day for the future of immigration law in the United States. The court will consider whether to uphold a lower court’s injunction against the law and will grapple with questions about federal and state power when it comes to immigration policy making.
The decision will affect the five other states that passed laws similar to Arizona’s and the many other states now waiting on the decision to decide if they too can pass similar legislation.
I’ll be in the court reporting tomorrow and will be blogging about what transpires afterwards. Check back for SB1070 coverage from me and other Colorlines.com writers throughout the week.
