The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Arizona v. U.S.. The case involves the issue of whether the federal government or states have the right to enforce immigration law. Arizona’s law includes provisions requiring police to check the immigration status of anyone detained or suspected of being in the country illegally. Immigrants must carry their papers at all times. Illegal immigrants are banned from soliciting for work in public places and police can arrest immigrants without a warrant if an officer believes they have committed a crime that would make them deportable.

Justice Elena Kagan recused herself from the Supreme Court oral argument as she was President Obama’s solicitor general when the federal government filed the lawsuit against Arizona. close
