Supreme Court Upholds Arizona Immigration Law

In a 5-3 decision, the Supreme Court has upheld the Legal Arizona Worker's Act, passed in 2007, that allows the state of Arizona to punish employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. The "controversial" law was opposed by the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Supreme Court has sustained Arizona's law that penalizes businesses for hiring workers who are in the United States illegally, rejecting arguments that states have no role in immigration matters.

By a 5-3 vote, the court said Wednesday that federal immigration law gives states the authority to impose sanctions on employers who hire unauthorized workers.

This ruling sets positive precedent for SB 1070 as the Supreme Court rejected arguments in the ruling that states have no role in immigration policy. A win for Arizona and numerous other states like Georgia, Utah, North Carolina, South Carolina, Nebraska and more who have taken the illegal immigration issue into their own hands due to the failure of the federal government to enforce immigration laws.
