    The Supreme Court will soon rule on Arizona's controversial immigration law. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has called illegal immigration a national problem. (Source: CNN)


    WASHINGTON (RNN) - The Supreme Court will hear arguments on Arizona's controversial immigration law.
    In total, the court will review four portions of the law enjoined by a federal appeals court in April.

    [Click here to view the Ninth Circuit's ruling.]
    One of those provisions requires police to determine the immigration status of the individuals they detain.

    Justice Elena Kagan, former solicitor in the Obama administration, recused herself from the decision to grant the writ of certiorari in the case.

    Speculation of Monday morning's announcement began after the court considered Arizona v. U.S. during its Friday conference, according to media outlets.

    You can bet they will rule AGAINST AZ. I hope not but.........it seems that is the way this country is going of late. The illegal organizations seem to be winning most battles. Will they win the war? We will soon know.

    US Supreme Court to Review Immigration Law
    April 20, 2012 - The United States Supreme Court on Wednesday will review a restrictive immigration law from the southwestern state of Arizona. The law requires police to check a person's immigration status during routine traffic stops or other actions. The Arizona statute has brought immigration laws to the forefront on a state and federal level.

    The Court has a conservative slant these days but even that won't help this case, I don't think. Too much room for brutal errors. There are just far too many natural born Americans who would be subject to get caught up in this thing. We are free to travel, it's a right, guaranteed in the constitution. We are free from illegal searches, again, guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. There is just no way to steer clear of the Constitution with a law that requires people to carry papers when they travel and then produce them when asked, regardless of reasonable suspicion of a crime.

    The law fails the most casual inspection of Constitutional muster.

    Although civil rights violations are a concern, and likely to occur under 1070, it will be the issue of implied preemption which will be subject to judicial review, where states may not enact legislation that violates, conflicts, or otherwise undermines Federal law:

    I would bet on freedom of travel, the 4th amendment and Hiibel to be cited in the decision.
