SB1070: No Supreme Court Ruling Today

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


It’s the Supreme Court decision Arizona has been waiting for, and it looks like we’re going to have to wait at least a few more days, possibly a week.

Some had thought the justices might issue their ruling on SB 1070, Arizona’s tough immigration law, Monday, but that did not happen. The earliest that decision might come is Thursday although many think it will not be until next Monday, the last opportunity before the court adjourns for its summer break.

Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, authored by recalled state Sen. Russell Pearce, into law two years ago, touching off a series of protests and legal battles.

The strictest anti illegal-immigration law in the country, SB 1070 went into effect in late July 2010, but only partially. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked several key components of the law.
