The Supreme Court's Decision on Arizona's Controversial Immigration Law: and Andy Ford, President of the Florida Education Association Speaks About Public Sector Workers, Vouchers, Charter Schools and Standardized Tests
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
