VIDEO: Marshall Fitz, Eduardo Garcia Discuss Supreme Court’s SB 1070 Hearing
Today, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on Arizona’s SB 1070, a broad and strict anti-immigrant law that essentially makes it a crime to be undocumented in the state. Four major provisions of the law will be under the judges’ review, including a section that requires all residents of the state, citizens and immigrants alike, to "show their papers" if a law enforcement agent who stops them has a “reasonable suspicion” to believe that they are undocumented.
This week we checked back with Marshall Fitz, the Director of Immigration Policy at the Center for American Progress, to discuss the provisions up for review in today’s hearing and the ongoing debate over immigration enforcement law.
