Arizona SB 1070 at the U.S. Supreme Court: What it means for the Midwest

DePaul University College of Law Lewis Building Room 241 25 East Jackson Street Chicago, IL

This month the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Arizona v. United States regarding the constitutionality of Arizona SB 1070, the notorious “papers please” immigration law that allows local police officers to arrest and question residents simply for “looking” undocumented. The Court's ruling could determine whether states have the right to pass their own immigration laws and in what circumstances state laws may trump federal immigration provisions. The Supreme Court's decision will have ramifications for communities across the United States.
