This month the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Arizona v. United States regarding the constitutionality of Arizona SB 1070, the notorious “papers please” immigration law that allows local police officers to arrest and question residents simply for “looking” undocumented. The Court's ruling could determine whether states have the right to pass their own immigration laws and in what circumstances state laws may trump federal immigration provisions. The Supreme Court's decision will have ramifications for communities across the United States.
Join Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center, DePaul University College of Law’s Center for Public Interest Law, and the Society for Asylum and Immigration Law for a conversation about how the SB 1070 argument might play out at the Supreme Court and how this landmark case could affect immigrants and American citizens in the Midwest and beyond.
Co-sponsors by DePaul Center for Public Interest Law and DePaul Society for Asylum and Immigration Law.
