Immigration Enforcement After Ruling

The Supreme Court most key parts of Arizona's law monday but they upheld one provision. It would allow police to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws if "reasonable suspicion" exists that a person is in the United States illegally.

The changes basically recognize what police are already allowed by Federal Law to do. If a person is pulled over and arrested, police can contact get their status information from Immigration & Customs Enforcement.There are more than twelve million undocumented people in the United States and the ruling made by the supreme court has raised question. One in particular. How do you enforce a law that requires a person to prove their citizenship?
