U.S. Supreme Court’s Split Decision on Arizona’s Immigration Law

The Supreme Court’s much anticipated decision on Arizona’s Immigration Law was finally issued today.  Although the Supreme Court struck down most of Arizona’s strict law pertaining to immigrants within its borders, it did allow Arizona police to stop, detain and question immigrants they believe are in the country illegally.  However, it is ultimately the federal government’s authority to decide whether or not Arizona’s immigrants will face deportation.  The implementation and interpretation of this Supreme Court decision will be what most of us will watch overtime.
