Governor Jan Brewer reacted to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s immigration law. She said the legislation was “vindicated” and the “heart” of the bill was upheld. She also said she expected the law to be challenged with future lawsuits.

The court upheld the provision that requires police officers review a person’s immigration status if they suspect that person is in the country illegally. The court, however, rejected three others provisions, ruling that the state cannot criminalize illegal immigrants seeking work, allow officers to arrest people without a warrant if the officer has probably cause to believe the person is an illegal immigrant, and make it a crime for immigrants to be in Arizona without their immigration papers. close
