Supreme Court Hears AZ Immigration Arguments [VIDEO]
Arizona representatives have argued before the U.S. Supreme Court for their right to crackdown on illegal immigration in a case that the Federal government says oversteps state’s rights by impeding on a unified Federal law.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern was in the courtroom for the arguments and reports from outside the Supreme Court:
Outside the court, plenty of chants from opponents of SB-1070, but it appears Arizona found some sympathy from the Justices here – the Court signaling it has no problem with a state law requiring police officers to check the immigration status of people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. Justice Antonin Scalia, saying the Arizona law only makes illegal what Federal law makes illegal.
The Obama Administration argues the state law is an unconstitutional over-reach, jeopardizing a uniformed Federal policy. On other issues surrounding the law, the Court appears more split. Lower Federal courts have blocked the legislation.
At the Supreme Court, Jared Halpern, FOX News Radio.
