Via an L.A. Times email alert:
Supreme Court justices, hearing arguments today over Arizona’s tough immigration law, suggested they were inclined to uphold parts of the state’s law but may block other parts.
Several justices said they saw no problem with requiring police officers to check the immigration status of people who are stopped.
But they also said they were troubled by parts of the Arizona law that made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to not carry documents or to seek work. The stop-and-arrest provision has been the most contested part of the law.
