Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Yesterday the Supreme Court issued its long awaited decision on Arizonaâ€™s immigration lawâ€”SB 1070. The court set aside three provisions of the law that would have pre-empted federal law. One made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to seek work or hold a jobâ€¦.another would have required all immigrants to always carry papers or documents proving they are here legallyâ€¦. And a third provision struck down authorized police to arrest without warrant anyone they believe committed a deportable crimeâ€¦..those provisions were struck down 5- 3.
But the court upheld the controversial â€œpapers pleaseâ€ provision of the Arizona lawâ€¦ which says that law enforcement can verify the immigration status of anyone lawfully stopped or arrestedâ€”who is suspected of being here illegallyâ€¦..
To discuss the decision--- joining us live now is Maria Rodriguez who is executive director of the Florida Immigrant Coalitionâ€¦..
Later we'll talk with Andy Ford who is president of the Florida Education Association
