The U.S. Supreme court today struck down most provisions of the Arizona law SB 1070 while sustaining one of its most controversial provisions.
The court sustained the “show me your papers” provision of the law that requires state law enforcement officers to determine the immigration status of anyone they stop or arrest.
The most conservative members of the court voted to sustain the entire law. Imagine this. Judges who consider themselves conservative support a law that requires all persons to carry papers to show their immigration/citizenship status. This is a practice most often found in repressive regimes such as that of Syria or Nazi Germany.
