  • Supreme Court backs Arizona immigration law that punishes businesses

    Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court has backed an Arizona law that punishes businesses hiring illegal aliens, a law that opponents, including the Obama administration, say steps on traditional federal oversight over immigration matters.

    The 5-3 ruling Thursday is a victory for supporters of immigration reform.

    It was the first high court challenge to a variety of recent state laws cracking down on illegal immigrants, an issue that has become a political lightning rod.

    The outcome could serve as a judicial warm-up for a separate high-profile challenge to a more controversial Arizona immigration reform law working its way through lower courts. That statute would, among other things, give local police a greater role in arresting suspected illegal immigrants.

    The hiring case turned on whether state law tramples on federal authority.

    "Arizona has taken the route least likely to cause tension with federal law," wrote Chief Justice John Roberts. "It relies solely on the federal government's own determination of who is an unauthorized alien, and it requires Arizona employers to use the federal government's own system for checking employee status."

    This is just the beginning. The judge who ruled the asking for proof of residency erred in her decision. Under federal regulations, as well as it printed on the residency card. The card must be presented upon request by lawful authority. I know it's printed on there cause my wife has a permanent residency card.

      This is a step in the right direction, employment is the driver behind illegal immigration, stop them from getting paid and sending the money back home, and they will go back home, and stay there.

        I have a better idea, than passing new immigration laws non-sense. How about we start enforcing the current immigration laws in the books already?

        Bring our troops home and put them on the border down south west and enforce the border? We spend billions giving money to Pakistan who gives less of a $h!t about us, when that money could be used to enforce the border.

        Apologies in advance for the rant.

          Something at you all запутанно. We too have an immigration account for those who comes to work from other states. To receive constant residing at the country, it is necessary to have a trade, it is necessary to have work. It isn't simple.

            Ironically, the bill was signed into law by then-Governor Janet Napolitano. Y'all might know her as the Democrat that's running DHS.

              Even more ironic is the fact that the DHS has told South Carolina that they can't enforce this law in our State and Janet Napolitano herself is refusing to give our Governor the time of day on the issue.

                Democrat, Republican... It doesn't matter what she is. She does her job the way politicians should.

                  It does matter when she, as a Democrat mouthpiece for the President's policies, publicly lambasts the current Republican for supporting similar things she did when she was in office.

                    Does California have similar laws and are they being enforced at all? From what my neighbors tell me, there is no enforcement here.

                        No, it does not. Moreover, many Democrats want to allow illegal aliens to remain in the country after being arrested.
