So who came out the winner with The Supreme Courts immigration ruling? Roque Planas on latino.foxnews.com writes "Was the Supreme Court's decision on Arizona's tough immigration law a win for those who don't want states creating their own laws on the matter, or was it a win for those who support enforcement at the local level?
Yes and yes -- depending on whom you ask.
But the fact is that neither side scored a complete victory.
The Supreme Court's much anticipated ruling struck down three of four contested provisions of the Arizona law, known as SB 1070. The decision prohibits Arizona from making it a state crime for undocumented immigrants to reside in the state or seek work there, and invalidates a provision that would have given police the power to arrest those suspected of residing in the country illegally.
But the ruling left perhaps the most controversial element intact: section 2B, often referred to as the “show me your papers” provision. The section instructs police officers to check the immigration status of those they stop or arrest for other crimes if they have reason to suspect the person is residing in the country illegally.
President Barack Obama painted the ruling as a limited triumph, but lamented the Court’s approval of section 2B.
“I am pleased that the Supreme Court has struck down key provisions of Arizona's immigration law,” Obama said in a statement. “Going forward, we must ensure that Arizona law enforcement officials do not enforce this law in a manner that undermines the civil rights of Americans, as the Court’s decision recognizes.”
Jan Brewer was also praised the ruling by saying "“Today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is a victory for the rule of law,” Brewer said in a statement. “After more than two years of legal challenges, the heart of SB 1070 can now be implemented in accordance with the U.S. Constitution.”
So, was there a winner? Do you applaud the Supreme Courts decision? If not then why?
