Supreme Court finds Most of the Arizona's Immigration Law Unconstitutional

The Supreme Court ruled that 3 of the 4 provisions of AZ's SB1070 law was unconstitutional, however they upheld the 'Papers Please' piece of the law.

The parts that were struck down made it a crime for undocumented immigrants seek employment and police to make arrests without a warrant.

While this piece is still there, it faces a lot of lawsuits that can strike it down. This is a good day for the Latino community in Arizona and for our nation. I say good, not great, because the discrimination part of the law still exist.

Hopefully, this will energize the Latino base to continue the fight and end the mess down in Arizona.
