I’m trying to understand how the federal government claims — and the Supreme Court upholds — the right to block Arizona from trying to survive. The right of survival is paramount in all things (so long as you don’t kill someone/something else to make it happen, of course). If the federal government claims all power over immigration, then refuses to use such powers, then refuses to allow Arizona to step in and do what IT needs to do, then Arizona has, in essence, been sentenced to death. More analysis here:

The Supreme Court has reached a decision in Arizona v. US.

Three of four provisions have been struck down, however, Section 2(B) of SB 1070, the part of the bill that allows local police officers to ask for immigration status after a crime, has been upheld. The Supreme Court has sent the remaining three provisions back to the Ninth Circuit. The Court ruled it was inappropriate for lower courts to strike down Section 2(B).

According to the Court opinion:

STRUCK- Section 3:

Makes failure to comply with federal alien-registration requirements a state misdemeanor.
