Pending Supreme Court AZ immigration law ruling likely to spur more challenges
By The Associated Press
PHOENIX ó An upcoming U.S. Supreme Court decision, which is expected to uphold the most controversial part of Arizonaís immigration law, wonít end disputes over whether local police can enforce immigration law.
Instead, itís likely to ignite a renewed assault on the law.
The court is evaluating the law on only the question of whether Arizonaís attempt to fix its border problems is trumped by federal law.
Opponents might then ask the courts to block enforcement of the provision in question on other grounds, such as racial profiling. The court isnít considering the possibility of profiling arising from the law because the Obama administrationís lawsuit that sent the case to the court didnít challenge it on those grounds.
The administration focused on whether federal law supersedes the state law.
