Arizona is stuck. They can't enact their own laws and the Feds are not enforcing existing federal laws. I agree with the ruling in that immigration is the domain of the federal government but I sympathize with Az in not being able to take matters in their own hands. The feds are cracking down on deporting criminals but taht is only part of the problem. They can check status during stops so I expect there will be lots of stops which might lead to more court battles over profiling and civil rights abuse.

In the meantime citizens and legals will have to compete with illegals for the coveted agricultural and domestic help jobs.

Scalia was not happy with the results.

Sarcasm, well played.

One person suggested to me that we build giant processing centers at the major entry points and issue work permits to migrants passing through. We would at least have some measure of control.

Asking anyone for papers or running immigration checks based on suspicion should be unconstitutional. If Arizona wants to make this legal and fair they should just run it on everyone, regardless of race, class, or suspision.
