The Court tossed out 3 or the 4 main provisions in the Arizona's SB 1070 or "Papers Please" law. The 3 parts that were ruled unconstitutional would have:
- ...required all immigrants to carry immigration registration papers
- ...allowed police to arrest anyone they suspected of being an illegal immigrant without having a warrant
- ...made it a criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to look for or hold a job
The part of the law the court "upheld" would:
- ...require police to check the immigration status of anyone they detain if there is "reasonable suspicion" that they are here unlawfully
In total this was a bad day if you are worked for Fox News, are an Arizona racist or are the delusional Jan Brewer.
Speaking of the delusional Jan Brewer, here is a video of her claiming victory today after the court's ruling against her beloved SB 1070...
She's zany and gives me the willies!
