What’s At Stake In Supreme Court Decision Over Arizona Law

Time is running out for the Supreme Court justices to decide whether Arizona’s controversial immigration law is constitutional. The law forces local law enforcement to question people stopped for minor offenses like traffic stops about their immigration status.

There’s speculation that the court could uphold some provisions of the law, while striking down others. And there’s also some confusion about how President Obama’s new policy on undocumented immigrants will be affected by the ruling.
