The second day of protesting the Supreme Court’s ruling on SB1070. Partial justice is no justice.
Today the Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of SB1070. Here are the results
The part of the law the justices upheld requires police officers stopping someone to make efforts to verify the person’s immigration status with the federal government.
The justices struck down three other parts of the law:
- One making it a crime for an illegal immigrant to work or to seek work in Arizona;
- One which authorized state and local officers to arrest people without a warrant if the officers have probable cause to believe a person is an illegal immigrant;
- And one that made it a state requirement for immigrants to register with the federal government.
Basically the heart of the law was upheld. Protests were held in response. Here are pictures from Tucson:
