Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals agrees with Supreme Court Ruling on SB 1070

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has sided with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold three of the tested four provisions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals removed its injunction on the law’s notorious section 2(b), and has remanded the case down to federal district court of Arizona. If the district court rules in accordance with higher courts, Arizona law enforcement will likely have the ability to check the immigration status of individuals stopped for other breaches of the law.The high court’s June 25 ruling struck down provisions requiring all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration papers, making it a state criminal offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job, and allowing police to arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants. However, the law’s infamous “papers please” provision remains intact, allowing police to check the status of someone if they question their legal status.
